Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/13/2023


Oakland’s shaky start to the year continued when they were blanked in the first game of this series, extending their losing streak to five games.


With an 8-31 record going into Friday night, the A’s were 16 matches down from the Rangers in the race for the division’s top slot.


Oakland only had three hits on Thursday; Estuary Ruiz got two and Brent Rooker contributed the third. In their defeat, the A’s had two runners caught stealing and were 0 for 2 with the bases loaded.


Despite making a strong start, Luis Medina (0-2) was given the loss after throwing six innings and giving up three runs on 5 hits, 0 walks, and 3 Ks.


In this game, JP Sears will start for the A’s as he looks for his first victory in eight starts this year.


Despite allowing 10 home runs this year, he has a record of 0-3 with a 5.54 ERA, 1.179 WHIP, eight walks, and 38 strikeouts over 37.1 innings pitched.


In his most recent outing, Sears was defeated by the Yankees on the road on Monday. In 5.1 innings, he allowed five runs on six hits, no walks, and four strikeouts in a 7-2 loss. 


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Oakland’s last 5 matches.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Oakland’s last 8 games with Texas.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. The A’s are perhaps baseball’s weakest team.


Their fielding is subpar, they can’t hit, their pitching is horrible, and their supporters barely bother to show up. Similar to how the A’s appear to have abandoned decent baseball, Oakland abandoned the franchise.


Although Sears has respectable peripherals in terms of WHIP and K:BB ratio, allowing up to 10 home runs is a serious issue.


That amounts to 2.4 long balls on average every nine innings, and opponents are hitting him for a solid .300 with runners in scoring position.


When you’re playing a Texas team that scores runs like they’re going out of style, those aren’t the stats you want to have. The Texas Rangers will win to a predicted score of 8-2.
