The Oakland Athletics will meet with the Texas Rangers in MLB action in Globe Life Field, TX, on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at 8:05 PM ET.

 

The Oakland Athletics, who have the poorest record in baseball, already abandoned the campaign and are beginning to offload pieces. They dealt Christian Bethancourt to the Rays last week, giving up one of their greatest hitters, which isn’t saying much.

 

For supporters of the A’s, the remainder of the season will be quite demanding. Just take a look at the numbers: their 3.19 runs per game average places them 29th in baseball.

 

In terms of batting average, home runs, and slugging percentage, they are in the bottom three.

 

The biggest chance the As have to win a game is Paul Blackburn, who will start the game on Wednesday. Blackburn enters the game with a 6-4 record and a 3.36 ERA in 17 starts.

 

In 91 innings, Blackburn struck out 73 while walking 23. Blackburn pitched poorly in his previous appearance, which resulted in an 8-3 defeat to the Astros.

 

In 4 innings, Blackburn gave up 6 runs on 7 hits while striking out 6 batters and walking 1. Blackburn had trouble pitching against Texas during his career, going 0-1 with a 12.91 ERA and 10 strikeouts in 3 outings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Oakland’s previous 10 matches. 
  • The Athletics are 5-10 SU in their previous 15 matches. 
  • Oakland is 3-8 SU in their last 11 matches against Texas.

Oakland Athletics vs Texas Rangers Predictions 7/13/2022

 

Although they are still in the running for an AL wildcard, the Texas Rangers fell behind the Seattle Mariners in the AL West.

 

Texas recovered after being swept by Baltimore by winning two of three games against the Twins, giving them some momentum going into this series against the As.

 

The Rangers’ 4.55 runs per game average placed them 11th in MLB. They are sixth in home runs, sixth in batting average, and tenth in slugging percentage.

 

While Nathaniel Lowe is hitting.281 with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs, Corey Seager is the team’s top hitter, batting just.245 with 20 home runs and 46 RBI.

 

On Wednesday, Jon Gray will start for the Rangers. In 15 starts this season, Gray has a record of 5-4 with a 4.03 ERA. In 82.2 innings, the right-hander has 91 strikeouts against 27 walks. Gray’s previous start was a tad wobbly, but he still defeated the Twins 6-5.

 

In 5.1 innings, he allowed 3 earned runs on 9 hits, 8 strikeouts, and 1 walk. He allowed two home runs as well. Earlier this year, the As hammered Gray, who gave up 5 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings while getting no-decision.

 

Gray faced Oakland twice in his career and is 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA, 5 strikeouts, and 2 appearances.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of Texas’ last 5 matches. 
  • The Texas Rangers are 4-8 SU in their last 12 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Texas’ last 5 matches against Oakland.

Oakland Athletics vs Texas Rangers. The MLB pick for this game is the Oakland Athletics. This year, Blackburn was the As’ top pitcher. On a team this terrible, having a 6-4 record with an ERA of 3.36 is outstanding.

 

The previous time Blackburn pitched, it was against one of baseball’s top teams, the Astros, and it was one of his worst performances of the year.

 

The Rangers can obviously hit on their own, but in game 3, they were really, truly awful. They dropped their last seven games in a row. For the exceptional victory, go with the As. The Oakland Athletics will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
