The Rangers have been CRUSHING left hand pitchers..
The Rangers have averaged 4.67 FIRST HALF runs per game in their last 6 games vs LHP and Jose Suarez for the Angels has been struggling this season so far allowing 20 total runs in the first half this season (avg 4 runs allowed). This includes allowing 11 runs in just 9 innings at home. On the other side of the mound, Martin Perez has been much better, allowing 1 earned run in his last 12.1 innings including 0 in his last away game. The Rangers have also just found ways to win first halves. They've won both this series so far, and 7 of their last 8 games overall.
Basically, there should be some runs early in this one, but I'm giving the edge to the pitcher in better form, Martin Perez, and rocking with the hotter team vs LHP in the Rangers.
