Athletics hammer Rangers

The Athletics picked up a dominant 15-3 win over Texas on Monday for their fifth win in six games. Oakland is now 58-43 overall and 32-21 on the road. The Athletics are putting up 4.70 runs per game this season while allowing 4.37 per contest.

Frankie Montas is getting the start for the Athletics tonight. He has started eight games this season and has a 5-2 record with a 3.35 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. Montas has pitched 48.1 innings this year and has 30 strikeouts with 15 walks.

Texas beat down

Mike Minor will be getting the start for the Rangers on Tuesday night. He is making his 19th start of the season and comes into the day with a 6-6 record, a 4.89 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Minor has pitched a total of 99.1 innings this season and has 79 strikeouts with 24 walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Athletics have won Montas’ last four road starts and they also have won 22-8 in their last 30 road games.


The Rangers have lost four of their last five against a right-handed starts and they have lost Minor’s last five starts against AL West opponents.


The Athletics are the better team in this series and they showed that on Monday. Oakland has the better hitting and they have the better pitching. Montas has been pretty good in limited starts and I think he will be able to best Minor. Minor has struggled most of the season and faces an Oakland team that is locked in at the plate right now.


The Pick: Oakland Athletics -105
