Colorado Rockies vs Texas Rangers 07/24/2020 – The Rockies have just finished their last two preseason games against Texas Rangers and they will remain in Texas to open their regular season against the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The field is set and baseball betting has already taken its course for this entertaining season. Colorado was unable to get past the .500 mark last season and they ended up at the fourth spot in the National League West. Texas Rangers, on the other hand, secured the third spot in the American League West despite being below the .500 mark. Both teams will make the best of their opportunity and this is going to be a tight game.
Colorado Rockies vs Texas Rangers 07/24/2020
This team completed the 2019 season with a 71-91 record. The Colorado Rockies were unable to get past San Francisco Giants in their third spot. Despite their loss, Colorado secured the fifth spot in batting average. When it comes to OPS they held the ninth and the same was for runs scored. There are no major changes to their batting squad this year and that is certainly an advantage. However, their pitching unit seems to be the issue. Colorado will deliver German Marquez to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game.
Players to watch: D. Dahl LF GP (12 AB 38 R 4 H 7 2B 2 3B 0 HR 3 RBI 6 TB 18 BB 3 SO 11 SB 1 AVG 0.184 OBP 0.244 SLG 0.474 OPS 0.718), S. Hilliard RF (GP 17 AB 38 R 5 H 7 2B 3 3B 0 HR 2 RBI 5 TB 16 BB 2 SO 14 SB 0 AVG 0.184 OBP 0.225 SLG 0.421 OPS 0.646).
Texas Rangers held a 78-84 record last year and that was unexpected. They will need to work on several aspects if they need to top the AL West. The biggest challenge for the Rangers was Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros. Texas has three new pitchers on their squad, Jordan Lyles, Corey Kluber and Kyle Gibson. The Rangers have also performed a decent job in their preseason games. Everything looks promising at the start, but this season has just 60 games per team. Texas will deliver Lance Lynn to the mound as their starting pitcher against the Rockies.
