The game is a makeup of a contest that was rained out April 17, with the teams splitting their two other meetings last month. Nicholas Tepesch is a 24-year old right-hander with a 3.54 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He didn't pitcher well against the White Sox in his last start, giving up five runs. Scott Feldman struck out 12 against the lowly San Diego Padres in his last start, but his old team the Rangers are not the Padres. There's a reason Texas leads the American League West. They average 4.68 runs per game, while the Cubs only average 3.6 runs and hit just .236 as a team. The Rangers visit Wrigley Field at 8:0pmET on Monday to take on the Cubs.
