The MLB brings more excitement today as the Texas Rangers will clash with the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois. This is game three of a four-game series.
Texas Rangers Form
The Rangers have lost the race for a playoff spot. They do have mathematical chance to get in the postseason, but with 12 games behind the 2nd wildcard sport, they need a miracle to get in.
Therefore, they will try to play out the string and build for next year. The Rangers lost game one of this series by a score of 6-1 and they will enter their game on Friday night at 5-12 over their last 17 games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rangers score an average of 5.10 runs per game which is the 10th record in the league. Also, they are 19th in hitting at .250 and 17th in homers with 175. On the mound, they are 24th in the league in ERA at 4.99, while also ranking 27th in WHIP at 1.45 and 20th in K’s with 1060.
Chicago White Sox Form
The White Sox are also out of the playoff race. However, Chicago is playing some good game at the moment as they won 3 of their last 4 games.
The White Sox are currently developing some young talent for the last few years. And it is safe to say that there is more to come from this talented team next season. And one of those rising stars is Ross Detwiler as he joined from the Nationals. All in all, I firmly believe that this team will be a strong force next season.
On the offensive side of the game, the White Sox score an average of 4.20 runs per game which is the 28th record in the league. Also, they are 12th in hitting at .255 and 25th in homers with 125. As for their game on the mound, they are 23rd in the league in ERA at 4.91.
The Rangers are out of the playoff race and they have nothing to play for at the moment. Moreover, their form is not that great at the moment. On the other side, the White Sox have been playing well lately. And even though they are out of the playoff race as well, they are developing young and exciting talent. And playing without pressure enables this team to flourish. Therefore, take the White Sox to win this game.
