Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers leap into this inter-conference pairing sporting a 70-61 record that ranks them as the 3rd best team in the NL West. Currently 2-games behind the division leading Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers are very much alive in the divisional race. And since they enter tonight’s matchup riding a 3-game winning streak, it’s looking like they have enough momentum to bridge that small gap. To help extend their current winning streak, the Dodgers will be sending Walker Buehler to the mound this evening. Buehler is 6-4 this season and wields a 2.96 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Matt Kemp (18 HR, 69 RBI, .284 BA), Cody Bellinger (20 HR, 62 RBI, .259 BA), and Chris Taylor (14 HR, 54 RBI, .247 BA).

Texas Rangers

The Rangers leap into this Tuesday night match flashing a weak 58-74 record that ranks them dead last in the AL West. Coming off a losing season, it’s looking like Texas’ troubles aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Furthermore, since they enter tonight’s pairing riding a 2-game losing streak, it’s easy to see why they’re pegged as the MLB baseball betting underdog in this one – despite playing at home. This will mark the 3rd time this season the Rangers have faced the Dodgers. Since Los Angeles got the best of Texas in the first two matches, we can expect a similar outing in this one. Ariel Jurado will get the start on behalf of Texas. Jurado is 2-3 this year and boasts a 6.40 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Shin-Soo Choo (21 HR, 60 RBI, .283 BA), Rougned Odor (17 HR, 59 RBI, .272 BA), and Nomar Mazara (16 HR, 60 RBI, .266 BA).
