The Rangers kept rolling last night and out-slugged the Bronx Bombers in New York. The Texas team from Arlington will send Cole Hamels (8-1, 2.79 ERA) to the mound tonight in search of their fourth straight win. The Bronx Bombers will counter with a revamped CC Sabathia (5-4, 2.71 ERA) in game two of a four game set.
- The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 games with Hamels on the mound.
- The Total has gone OVER in 7 of the Yankees’ last 9 games.
- The Rangers are 7-0 in their last 7 games after winning as an underdog.
Before CC’s blow up at Coors his last start, he posted six quality starts in seven tries. Despite everything working against the 35-year-old lefty, Sabathia has been one of the Yanks’ best starters this year.
Hamels is 5-0 with an ERA of 1.64 in seven road starts this year. There is plenty working in favor of the Texas lefty tonight but be warned – the last time Hamels pitched at Yankee Stadium, he allowed five runs and lasted only five innings in a loss.
The O/U is 7-2 in the Rangers’ last nine game with Hamels as the starter and with a total of 8.5 Texas’ fifth-ranked offense could reach that number by themselves.
