Texas Rangers: Default American League West leaders

Despite going 5-7 over their last twelve contests, the Texas Rangers are still in full control of the American League West lead. That’s because the Oakland Athleti have the same record, while the Los Angeles have gone 4-8, over the same number of games.

LHP Matt Harrison heads to bump for the Rangers and he’s is coming off five hit, one run loss as the Rangers fell 3-0 to the Yankees back on Tuesday. A similar effort get’s a win here.

Toronto Blue Jays: May not be able to fly out of the AL East basement

After four straight seasons of finishing fourth in the ultra-competitive American League East, the Blue Jays are battling the Boston Red Sox for last place in this season. Toronto is 3-9 over their last twelve games – though they did manage to beat the Rangers 3-2 on Friday.

Toronto bats fell silent in a 2-1 loss on Saturday. Henderson Alverez (7-10 ERA 4.48) is 0-3 in August and has allowed 265 hits, with just 53 strikeouts, over 142.2 innings this season.

Rangers vs. Blue Jays Advantage Sports Betting Prediction

This is not a good spot for the Blue Jays. We don’t expect that Harrison is very happy with the loss he suffered last time out. We’re also certain that he will take his frustrations out on the Blue Jays. Saddle up and ride with the Rangers on the money line here!
