New York Yankees vs Texas Rangers Match Preview and Betting Tips
The New York Yankees, who lead the major leagues in runs scored and also own the best record (30-13), look to feast on another struggling team when they visit the Texas Rangers on Monday for the opener of their three-game series. The Yankees posted 18 runs over the weekend to win the final two games of a three-game set against Kansas City (14-32) and prepare to play Rangers (18-30), who reside in the American League West cellar.
Slugger Giancarlo Stanton continues to turn around his season, going 10-for-20 with a pair of home runs over his last five games to raise his batting average to .263, while Aaron Hicks went 7-for-12 with a homer for New York in the series versus Kansas City. Masahiro Tanaka gets the start in the series opener for the Yankees and will oppose the ageless Bartolo Colon, who is coming off his best performance of the season.
The Rangers arrive home after losing three of four to the White Sox in Chicago, including a 3-0 defeat on Sunday in which they recorded only two hits. Shin-Soo Choo registered one of them and is 9-for-28 with four walks and six RBIs over his last seven games for Texas, which is just 7-16 at Globe Life Park as it begins a seven-game homestand.
