Arizona Diamondbacks vs Texas Rangers Match Preview and Free Picks
The Arizona Diamondbacks used a pronounced power display to jump back into sole possession of first place in the National League West. Fresh off a five-homer performance, the Diamondbacks (65-54) would love to flex their offensive muscle again on Monday when they open an abbreviated two-game interleague series against the host Texas Rangers (52-68).
Paul Goldschmidt belted a pair of homers in Sunday's 9-2 romp over Cincinnati, giving him 10 hits - including six for extra bases (four doubles, two homers) to go along with four RBIs and three runs scored during his last six games. The 30-year-old has reached base safely in 19 straight contests, although he was just 1-for-7 as Arizona and Texas split their two-game series to end July.
While the Diamondbacks are nursing a one-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in their division, the Rangers reside comfortably in the basement of the American League West after dropping three of four to the New York Yankees. Joey Gallo continued his blistering August by collecting two hits and a run scored in Sunday's 7-2 setback versus the Yankees, although he went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in the previous series against Arizona.
