Tuesday, September 04, 2018 8:05 PM
Play: Total: 9.0/-116 Over
In three career starts at Globe Life Park, Heaney the Angels starter is 0-3 with a 10.38 ERA, his highest ERA of any ballpark. Meanwhile,Minor the Rangers starter is without a decision with a 5.68 ERA in three career games, one of them starts, against the Angels .Minor made two relief appearances versus the Angels last season with he was with Kansas City, going 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA. Both pitchers have pitched decently lately, but my own power rankings suggest they do not matchup well vs these teams batting orders and a higher scoring game than the lines makers are projecting is a good bet considering the inconsistencies of both bullpens when called upon.
