The Texas Rangers will host the Oakland Athletics at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on Monday, August 24, 2020 8:05 P.M, ET. Game 1 in a 4 game series between both American League teams is underway. Oakland looks to push forward after winning their last series against the Angels. The Rangers look to end their slump here in their home field. Texas is 12th in the American League with a 10-17 record, and are 3rd in the AL West Division.

The Rangers are now on their 8th game losing streak and scored only a total of 6 runs in their last 3 games. They were recently swept by the Mariners and lost at 4-1 in their previous game. Jeff Mathis put the Rangers on the board in that game with a solo homer in the 8th to go with his 1 hit and 1 run batted in. Mike Minor got the loss in the game after allowing 4 earned runs in 6 innings pitched. Nick Solak leads the Rangers with 26 hits, and 9 RBIs, while Joey Gallo has a team high of 16 RBIs, and 7 homers this season.

Oakland Athletics vs Texas Rangers Predictions 8/24/2020

The Athletics won 4 of their last 5 games, while making 13 total runs in their last 3. The squad managed to steal their last victory from the Angels with a score of 5-4. The Athletics tied the game at 4 after playing 6 innings, but a run in the 9th by Mark Canha made the difference. Matt Chapman went 2 for 5 in that game with 1 RBI. Liam Hendricks got the win after pitching 1 scoreless inning. Chapman is their best player this season with 30 hits, 22 RBIs, and 9 home runs. The Athletics have a low batting average at .225 which is 24th in the league, but they can create a lot of runs at 144 this season which is 7th in the majors. Their bullpen also plays a big part in their success with a team ERA at 3.54 which is the 5th best record in the league. The Athletics are kings of the American League with a 20-9 record, and are 1st in the AL West Division. Jesus Luzardo will be on the mound for the Athletics in game 1.

Oakland Athletics vs Texas Rangers. MLB’s pick in game 1 will go to the Oakland Athletics -132. The pitching matchup is a good one, with Lynn having a great season thus far, while Luzardo is doing decently as well. Luzardo is doing great against the Rangers in his career, and so is Lynn against the Athletics. The difference here is Lynn does not have a good team to back him up even if he will have another great outing. The rest of Texas’ bullpen are terrible this season, and don’t forget about abysmal offensive output this season. Oakland won 10 of their last 11 games against the Rangers, and will continue in this series to a score of 5-3.
