Oakland (42-29, 20-17 road, 38-33 O/U) is one of the hottest teams in baseball, though they did lose their last two of three against Seattle. Texas (38-31, 19-14 home, 24-42 O/U) has lost six straight and eight of their last 10 to fall out of first place in the American League West as they now sit three games behind the A's. Oakland sends out Dan Straily to the mound against the cold-hitting Rangers, who have scored just eight runs in their six-game losing streak and four against Toronto as they got swept in four. Straily is 3-0 with a 2.20 ERA in hiss last five outings and he is holding opponents to a .179 batting average while walking just four batters in 32 2/3 innings. He takes on struggling rookie Nick Tepesch, who has given up 11 runs in 12 innings over his last two starts. The Athletics will get back to their streaking ways against an ice-cold Rangers team. Oakland travels to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to take on Texas at 8:05pmET. 

MLB FREE PICK: OAKLAND A'S +109
