Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers, first game of the series, the Angels want to win at home after having lost almost 10 games at home, it has not been easy the last month for the Angels and much less the first week of September. The Rangers come to this series with fewer concerns, have no aspirations to reach the playoffs, are almost eliminated but want to win at least one game in the series.
Los Angeles Angels: Today we want to win at home.
Los Angeles in the season has a record of 66-71 overall, but at home the record is at 34-34 with 50% effectiveness, all because they have lost many of the last games at home. Prior to this series against the Rangers, the team had already tied a mini-series against the Rockies 1-1 and were swept by the Astros 3-0, and the last series of the last three was against the Athletics with a 2-1 defeat. In the last 10 games the Angels have only reaped 4 victories.
Matt Shoemaker is back after an injury that had him out for most of the 2018 season, so far Shoemaker has only one victory with the Angels, that win was against Athletics 8-3 on March 31. Shoemaker is obviously hungry for wins , today possibly have a good performance. The Angels at home are scoring an average of 4.52 runs, 7.96 hits, and 1.37 homeruns per game.
Texas Rangers: With nothing to lose.
The Rangers on the road have a record of 29 wins and 36 losses, a negative record with 44.6% effectiveness. In the season the Rangers are 60-77 overall, if they lose 6 more games they will be eliminated, in the same way they no longer have possibilities of reaching the playoffs. Prior to this series the Rangers lost to the Giants, Athletics, Yankees and tied a mini-series against the Diamondbacks. The Rangers do not win a series on the road since July 29 against the Astros.
Jeffrey Springs, rookie ready for his debut with the Rangers, in the minors left a record of 4-4 in 2018. On average since the minors Springs has a record of 2.55 ERA. Springs will have a lot of work tonight against the Angels, since the home team has an average of .300 hitters at home.
