Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Texas Rangers The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. The Dodgers’ offense has performed far worse on the road this season than at home.


They are only batting 0.235 away from Dodger Stadium this year and scoring fewer runs per game. More crucially, the Dodgers’ team batting average against left-handed pitchers this season is below 0.230.


Although his WHIP is higher at home, Heaney is a good 4-3 in 11 starts at home, so he will undoubtedly be motivated to face his former team. The Rangers’ offense also excelled at home, hitting 0.286 in front of home fans.
