Analysis

The Rangers have put together a nice winning streak, winners of 3 straight as they try and sweep Kansas City at home on Sunday. Texas has outscored the slumping Royals 12-2 so far in the series and there will be some extra electricity at Globe Life Field as Max Scherzer gets set to make his season debut. We all know that Scherzer has great stuff, and this is a good first start for him as KC ranks 2nd to last in both OPS as well as batting average in the past week, hitting just .175 collectively. The Royals have lost 5 of 6 and 10 of 13 as they trot out Alec Marsh for the series finale. Marsh has allowed 4 earned or more in 4 of his past 5 starts, with one strong outing sprinkled in between. He was pummeled by Oakland last time out, allowing 7 ER in just 3 innings. The metrics on him indicate his struggles are likely to continue, and we’ll keep an eye on the Rangers as they’re a team that has underachieved and we’re likely to see positive regression moving forward. Take the Rangers.
