SUNDAY AFTERNOON MLB BALLPARK BLOWOUT
Oakland vs. Texas,
04/14/2019 15:05 EDT,
Score: 7 - 8
Money Line: -129 Oakland
The surging Oakland Athletics are going for a fifth consecutive victory here as they take on the Texas Rangers Sunday afternoon.
Oakland southpaw Brett Anderson (3-0, 2.50 ERA) was 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA against the Rangers last season. He's coming off a solid outing where he held Baltimore to two runs in six frames.
The Rangers turn to right-hander Adrian Sampson (0-1, 1.86 ERA) who has been solid out of the bullpen here in 2019, surrendering only two runs through 9 2/3 innings of work. This will however be just his sixth career start and he is 0-5 with a 4.10 ERA in eight career appearances.
Sampson will face an Oakland team that is coming off six consecutive multi-homer games and reigning home run champion Khris Davis has already blasted a major league-leading 10 on the season. Davis hit seven homer in nine games here at Globe Life Park last season ...
The Rangers have have lost five of six games, and I think we're getting a great price on the hotter (and better) A's in this matchup.
8* play on Oakland Athletics.
