The Rangers had 12 hits on Tuesday to lead it to the win. The early run support helped Jesse Chavez, who allowed one unearned run over 6.1 innings to improve to 3-2 on the season. He had seven strikeouts with no walks. Ronald Guzman had two hits and two RBI to lead the team while Nomar Mazara had two hits with a RBI.
Tigers lose fifth straight

MLB Betting Trends
The Rangers are 7-1 in their last eight Game 2’s of a series and 4-1 in their last five road games against a left-handed starter.
The Tigers are 3-9 in their last 12 home games against a left-handed starter and 14-38 in their last 52 games on grass.
Minor has led the Rangers to a win in four straight starts and he has gotten eight innings deep in two of his last three outings. We could see more of the same today against this poor Detroit lineup. Boyd has given up 10 runs over his last 10 innings and the Tigers have lost seven of his last eight starts. Detroit just doesn’t have the hitting or the pitching to won consistently, especially against a good starter.
MLB Prediction: Texas Rangers +100
