Texas Rangers

The Rangers enter tonight’s contest sporting a 58-56 record that ranks hem 3rd overall in the AL West. At the present time, the Houston Astros lead the division with their 75-40 record, giving them a 16 ½ game lead over the Rangers. With this in mind, it’s clear Texas playoff hopes are dwindling with each passing day. Nevertheless, the Rangers will still take to the diamond to try and get this road win over Milwaukee. The chips are in the Brewers corner as they enter with all the momentum and they’re clearly having the better season overall. Tonight it’s up to LHP Kolby Allard to get this win. Allard enters this evening’s action ready to make his first start of the season.

Players to Watch: Elvis Andrus (8 HR, 54 RBI, .282 BA), Shin-Soo Choo (18 HR, 44 RBI, .276 BA), and Nomar Mazara (15 HR, 58 RBI, .260 BA).

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brew Crew step into tonight’s matchup sporting a 60-56 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL West. At the present time, the Chicago Cubs lead the division and own a 3 ½ game lead over Milwaukee. With this in mind, it’s clear that the Brewers can take that No. 1 spot in the coming days. All they need is a bit of luck and to extend their current win streak. Tonight LHP Gio Gonzalez is the man charged with defending the home stadium. Gonzalez enters this matchup sporting a 2-1 record as well as a 3.35 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.
