They will now face another Texas team who happens to be the worst team in the American League. Lyles may have good performances against the A’s in his career but his season is just terrible at this moment. Fiers doesn’t have a great season as well but is not as terrible as Lyles. The A’s are 12-2 in their last 14 games against the Rangers.  Looking for Oakland to run over the Rangers with all the momentum with them to a score of 7-3.
