The Texas Rangers Start a Weekend Series Against the Los Angeles Angels
The Texas Rangers will start a three game weekend series today in Los Angeles as they take on divisional foe in the Angels. Texas will send Joe Saunders to the mound on Friday night opposite LA's starter Garrett Richards. Saunders enters this contest with a 0-2 record along with a 3.46 ERA. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays he was roughed up as he lasted just 3.2 innings while giving up four runs on six hits while walking three as he took the loss that game. "The last few starts have been decent, but they could have been better," Saunders said Wednesday. "That's the goal, not to have an OK start, but a good start." LA's starter on the other hand is having an All-Star-caliber season, with a 2.87 ERA, 87 strikeouts, a 1.10 WHIP and just two homers allowed in 87 2/3 innings. First pitch for this game is set to 9:05pm from Angel Stadium of Anaheim and can be seen on FOX Sports SW.
