Rangers’ Hutchison allows two runs, beats Angels

Drew Hutchison defeated the Angels by holding them to two runs in five innings on Friday. He struck out six, walked one and yielded five knocks in the victory. He allowed RBI-singles to Taylor Ward and David Fletcher in the contest while improving his record to 1-1 with a frightful 7.43 ERA in three starts since joining the Rangers a couple weeks ago. He made 11 relief appearances with the Phillies earlier this year and now has a combined 5.71 ERA in 34 2/3 innings. He has 27 strikeouts and 21 walks and has allowed seven homers over that stretch, which is not good.

Rodriguez set to rejoin Giants rotation on Friday night

Dereck Rodriguez (hamstring) will rejoin the Giants' rotation Friday against the Rangers. Rodriguez strained his right hamstring last week during the Giants' skirmish with the Dodgers, but he's evidently made a rapid recovery and will slide back into San Francisco's rotation without a rehab start. Pudge's son is sporting a nifty 2.25 ERA over 14 appearances -- 12 starts -- for the Giants this season.

MLB Betting Trends


The Rangers are 1-4 in their last five road games and 1-5 in their last six games coming off a win.

San Francisco

The Giants are 2-6 in their last eight games overall and 1-5 in their last six interleague games.


The Giants have been profitable when Rodriguez pitches, winning eight of his last 10 starts and five of his last seven home outings. The Rangers are just 5-13 in their last 18 games versus the Giants and 2-9 in their last 11 meetings at AT&T Park.


The Pick: San Francisco Giants -155
