Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics 5/28/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Texas Rangers will meet with the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, on Saturday, May 28, 2022, at 4:07 PM ET.

 

For Game 3 of their series with the Athletics, the Rangers are set to give lefty reliever Taylor Hearn another shot at the mound. In an appearance against the Houston Astros last week, he surrendered four runs in four innings. Hearn made 8 starts this season, none of which lasted more than five innings.

 

In 34 13 innings, he is 2-3 with a 5.77 ERA and a 33/18 K/BB ratio. Depending on how he pitches against the Athletics, he might be put back to the bullpen.

 

Despite hitting the 12th most home runs (46), the Rangers underperformed at the plate this season. They are only generating 4.07 runs per game and have a.285 on-base percentage, which ranks them 28th in the Majors. They’re in the middle of a quasi-rebuild, so anticipate some difficulties.

 

Corey Seager is hitting .232, but he has 8 home runs and 20 RBI to lead the Rangers’ middle infield. With a 20-23 record entering play on Friday, they are still relatively relevant in a tough American League West despite their struggles at the bat.

 

  • The Texas Rangers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches against Oakland.
  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Texas’ last 12 matches on the road.
  • The Texas Rangers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches on the road against Oakland.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/28/2022

 

For the third game of the series, Oakland is set to use lefty Zach Logue. Last week, he was shelled by Seattle, throwing up seven runs in four and a third inning of work in a defeat.

 

Logue did manage to strike out six batters, but it was the only bright spot in his performance. In his first start back after being promoted from Triple-A, he walked four batters, gave up three home runs, and was pulled in the fifth inning. He’s had a couple of strong performances this year, but one of them was against the Tigers.

 

The Rangers aren’t much better at the bat, so the southpaw should bounce back well. Over 22 innings of action, he has a 4.43 ERA and 1.39 WHIP.

 

Through the first two months of the season, the Athletics struggled at the bat. They have the lowest on-base percentage (.276) and the second-fewest home homers in baseball. Although they play in a pitcher-friendly venue, their hitting averages have been terrible.

 

They are generating only 3.3 runs per game and dropped eight of their past twelve matches heading into Friday’s matchup. The fact that they traded away their whole roster doesn’t help matters.

 

  • The Oakland Athletics are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Oakland’s last 13 matches against Texas.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 2-14 SU in their last 16 matches at home.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. A week after surrendering four runs to the remarkable Houston Astros, Taylor Hearn takes the mound for Texas.

 

In 34 13 innings, he is 2-3 with a 5.77 ERA and a 33/18 K/BB ratio. Depending on how he pitches against the Athletics, he might be put back to the bullpen. Fortunately for Hearn, he will be playing against one of baseball’s poorest lineups.

 

Oakland ranks 29th in runs per game and has baseball’s lowest on-base percentage. The Athletics lost 13 of their past 15 games in the Alameda County Coliseum. Expect the Athletics to continue to struggle at the bat. The Texas Rangers will win to a predicted score of 7-5
