Darvish Pitching for Rookie of Year Honors
It would be hard pressed for the baseball writers to give the AL Rookie of the Year award to a pitcher but Yu Darvish has been nothing short of brilliant in his first big league season with the Rangers. He will be pitching for win number 17 Tuesday night when division rivals the A’s come to town. Darvish threw eight dominant innings against the Angels his last time out and will be trying to pitch the Rangers one game closer to the AL West crown.
Milone Needs Stronger Road Outings
Tommy Milone, 6-6 on the road in 2012, will be looking to buck his own personal trend tonight when pitching against the Rangers away from his home park. He has never defeated the Rangers, going 0-2 with a 3.75 ERA in his career against the division rivals. Milone has pitched well of late, going 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA. The A’s are five games behind Texas for first place in the AL West but are holding the second spot in the AL Wild Card race by two games over the Angels.
AL West contests such as the one featuring the A’s and the Rangers are so fun to bet on because of the talent involved between the two teams. This is a tough one to call but the online sportsbook of Bet365.com has the Rangers as -1.5 (+110) home chalk over the Athletics Tuesday night. Make sure you back the Rangers in this AL West game that has playoff implications.
