When it was reported that desired free agent signing Jacob deGrom would miss the whole season while preparing for Tommy John surgery, the Texas Rangers’ week slowed down. Despite the bleak outlook, the squad persevered to win five of its six games and came into this series with an AL West Division lead of five games over Houston. To see how they perform, Texas will now go to play the baseball club with the best record, the Tampa Bay Rays.

Eovaldi had eight outstanding starts and an 8-2 record in his 12 appearances this season. He pitched 80.1 innings this year, including two complete games. Five of Eovaldi’s seven road starts have resulted in victories, and he is 5-1 with a 1.49 ERA overall. He has an 8.2 road K/9 rate and a 0.95 WHIP. Eovaldi threw 11 innings in his previous two outings, allowing only five hits and 11 strikeouts while allowing no runs.

The Rays’ starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow picked up his first win of the season after tossing six solid innings and allowing only one hit and one run.

Game two of this series will be the debut of Taj Bradley. Bradley has made seven starts since being called up this year, finishing 4-2 with a 3.60 ERA. Despite the team restricting his innings at each start this season, he could not perform well. So far, Bradley has started every game for precisely five innings while giving up 33 hits. His 12.3 K/9 rate and 1.17 WHIP are very impressive. Bradley has a 2-1 record and a 6.43 ERA in three home starts.

Texas Rangers vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. This season, a game between two teams with potent starting pitchers and offenses should be exciting. The Rangers should be in the lead as Eovaldi takes with youngster Bradley. Due to Bradley’s high ERA at home this season, his innings will be capped at five. Eovaldi, meanwhile, was the league leader in innings pitched and has two complete games on his credit. Expect the Rays’ bullpen operating without closer Fairbanks to allow runs to be scored by the Rangers’ hot-hitting team against Bradley. Texas will triumph, as anticipated, 5-4.
