Guzman smacks three homers

Rangers first baseman Ronald Guzman had quite a night yesterday as he hit three solo home runs in five at-bats to guide hs squad to a 12-7 victory at the Yankees. Shin-Soo Choo ended the game 2-for-5 with a double and a run. Rougned Odor was 2-for-4 with three runs and an RBI. Elvis Andrus finished 4-for-4 with a double, two runs and three RBIs. Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and four RBIs. Drew Robinson was 0-for-2, but walked two times and stole a base for three runs scored. Mike Minor picked up the win as he allowed four earned runs on six hits with two strikeouts and a walk over 5 2/3 innings.

Tanaka hit hard in loss

Masahiro Tanaka was shelled for six earned runs on six hits over five innings to take the loss Friday, striking out two and walking three. Giancarlo Stanton walked twice and scored a run in five plate appearances. Didi Gregorius finished 3-for-5 with two runs. Miguel Andujar was 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and an RBI. Luke Voit went 1-for-4 with two RBIs. Brett Gardner ended the contest 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Austin Romine was 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs.

Drew Hutchison (1-2, 6.29 ERA) will start today for Texas, while New York counters with Lance Lynn (8-8, 4.58).

MLB Betting Trends


The Rangers are 10-4 in their last 14 games overall. The over is 6-2 in the last eight Texas road games.

New York

The Yankees are 58-20 in their last 78 home games. New York is 20-8 in its last 28 Saturday games.


Lynn was outstanding in his first start with the Yankees and could be a stabilizing force in the rotation. He should get plenty of run support here as Hutchison hasn't fared well at the MLB level this season and faces a difficult challenge in a home run haven. I'm going to say New York bounces back strong today and wins on the runline.
