Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics 5/14/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Texas Rangers will go against the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, CA, on Sunday, May 14, 2023, at 4:07 PM ET.


Texas had chances to even the series in the second game on Friday night but let them slip by, giving the A’s a lead going into Saturday’s contest.


The Rangers have a 2.5-game lead over the Angels in the AL West race going into Saturday with a record of 23-15.


Texas had two hits on Friday night from Robbie Grossman (run, two RBI), Jonah Heim (run, RBI), and Ezequiel Duran (run, RBI), but their bullpen once again failed them.


In the defeat, Grossman blasted his fourth home run of the year. Martin Perez pitched five innings, giving up four runs on eight hits, two walks, and three strikeouts while not influencing the outcome. 


In this game, Rangers pitcher Andrew Heaney will make his eighth start of the year. He enters the game with a record of 2-3, a 5.25 ERA, a 1.222 WHIP, 16 walks, and 38 strikeouts in 36 innings pitched.


Heaney lost his previous start against the Mariners on the road on Tuesday. He pitched 6.2 innings in a 5-0 loss for the Rangers, giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts.


Heaney is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, seven walks, and 18 strikeouts in 17.1 innings pitched in his last three starts.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Texas’ last 6 matches.
  • The Texas Rangers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • The Texas Rangers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Oakland.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/14/2023


The second game of the series was tied going into the weekend until Oakland came back to win in a walk-off fashion in extra innings.


With a 9-31 record going into Saturday afternoon, the A’s were 15 games down of the Rangers in the race for the division’s top berth.


Esteury Ruiz (two runs, four RBI) and Nick Allen each had three hits for Oakland on Friday night as they won.


The A’s won thanks to home runs from Carlos Perez (his third), Ruiz (his first), Kevin Smith (his third), and Brent Rooker (his eleventh), the latter of which came in the 10th inning as the walk-off three-run winner. 


In this game, Drew Rucinski, pitching for the A’s, is making his fourth start of the year. He pitched 14.1 innings this season and is 0-3 with an 8.16 ERA, 2.093 WHIP, nine walks, and six strikeouts.


In his most recent start, which was on the road against the Yankees on Tuesday, Rucinski was unsuccessful.


In a game the A’s lost 10-5, he pitched five innings, surrendering seven runs (five earned) on six hits, three walks, and two strikeouts. 


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Oakland’s last 6 matches.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Oakland’s last 9 matches against Texas.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. Even though the A’s prevailed in game two of the series on Friday night, predicting that kind of power burst from them again is probably foolish.


The A’s had offensive issues all season, especially at home, so you can’t expect them to regularly score nine runs or hit four home runs in a game.


Texas is a potent offensive squad with one of the deepest lineups in the league. Although Heaney was not particularly effective on the mound, he still outperforms Rucinski.


Expect the Rangers’ hitters to perform as expected and the A’s to falter when it matters most, giving Texas the advantage on getaway day. Texas will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
