MLB Preview and Pick - Rangers at Giants

June 19, 2009
MLB Preview and Free Pick - Texas Rangers at San Francisco Giants 10:15 ET

By Matt Fargo

The Rangers are holding on in the American League West as they are coming off a series win at home over Houston.

Playing on the road has been a huge challenge in previous years for Texas, but they are a game over .500 away from home.

The Giants brought in a 21-9 home record into their series with the Angels, but were swept and they have dropped three straight heading into this weekend series.

Scott Feldman of the RangersThe Rangers send Scott Feldman to the hill and he has been a huge asset to the rotation.

He has been as consistent as they come as he has posted a 3.70 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through his first 10 starts and three relief appearances.

His work out of the bullpen was not very good actually and just looking at his starts shows a very solid 2.72 ERA that includes six quality starts as well as nine games allowing three runs or fewer.

He is a perfect 4-0 in four road starts. San Francisco has gotten some good work out of Randy Johnson this season as he has been very solid since getting hammered by the Mets back on May 16th.

His ERA in his last five starts is 2.15 but he has faced some very weak offensive teams in that stretch.

The Rangers offense has been up and down, but it is important to note that they are 15-9 on the season against left-handed starters.

The Rangers are 16-5 in their last 21 games after allowing five runs or more in their previous game so the team has been able to bounce back well.

Texas is 8-2 in their last 10 Interleague games as a favorite while the Giants are a disappointing 1-10 in their last 11 Interleague home games against teams with a winning record.

Pick: Texas Rangers (Feldman) -103 available at 5Dimes.com
