It's an AL West divisional matchup between 4th and 5th as the Angels travel to Globe Life Field for a three-game road trip against the Rangers.  The Angels are coming off of a 2-1 series loss to the Mariners and lost 301 t the Astros before that.  LAA will once again be out of the playoffs.  The Rangers sit behind the Angels in the division and are coming off of a 2-2 series split with the Orioles.  Prior to that, they were swept 3-0 by the Yankees.  Both clubs are in a poor run of form having won a combined 5 of their last 20 games.

Pitching matchup


Packy Naughton (0-3, 5.23 ERA) Rookie Packy Naughton will start his 5h game of the season.  The left-handed pitcher has a 5.23 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 6 games and 20.2 innings this season.  In that stretch, he surrendered 23 hits for 12 ERs and has 12 strikeouts and 11 walks.  


A.J. Alexy (2-1, 5.00 ERA) A.J. Alexy will start his 4th game of the season tonight for the Rangers.  The first-year pitcher has played 5 games in total this season pitching 18 innings a giving 10 hits for 10 ERs and has 15 strikeouts and 15 walks.  He pitched 6 innings against the Angels and gave up 1 hit with no ERs and claimed 7 strikeouts compared to 2 walks. 


The last time these teams faced off they split the series 2-2 in LA.  Barring one game it wasn't high-scoring series and even their previous series - the last one - played in Texas, the teams didn't put many runs on the board.  The over / under at 9 seems too high tonight. 

PICK: Under 9 (-105)
