    I really like Mike Minor and feel he doesn't really get that much respect. Sure he's 3-3 but he's had some bad luck where his team hasn't giving him the best run support. His strike outs are up and he's doing a great job limiting hard contact and I really think Lopez is a gas can that will explode against a lineup like the Rangers. I'm blown away at this line and think the rangers really should be in the neighborhood of -170 so I'm on the rangers here. Lopez has a wOBA of .361 and ISO of .235 to left handed batters (his numbers aren't much better against righties) and this Ranger team is stacked with power left handed bats. I may even throw in a runline bet here since the Rangers are away get their 9th innnig at bat no matter what.

    My Pick: Texas -127 60%

      Good post. I got them at -125 this morning.

  • I like Texas on the First 5 for this one at -105. KC has an F5 record of 3-8 vs LHP and ranks 28th in OPS vs LHP over the last month and the unlikely ace of the Rangers, Mike Minor has a 2.25 ERA in the first 5 innings. Jorge Lopez has a 10.13 F5 ERA + TEX ranks 6th in OPS vs RHP over the last month and are 4th in F5 runs in this span.

    My Pick: Texas -127 60%

  • The plus money is tempting considering the way the Rangers have lost 5 in a row, but it's tough to back Lopez with the way he's pitched this season. The Rangers have a clear pitching advantage in this game and should be able to snap their losing streak on the road today.

    My Pick: Texas -125 50%

    Royals Review: Royals leave a million people on base in loss to Rangers

    MLB

    The Royals lost today, 6-1, to Texas. I'm not sure it's fair to say that they shouldn't have lost, but they had so, so many opportunities not to lose. They squandered every single one of them.

    Jorge Lopez, who continues to be plagued by surrendering a ton of home runs, put his team in a 2-0 hole when Kole Calhoun hit a two-run bomb in the first inning. The Royals would get one run back in the frame, when Nicky Lopez (though Steve Physioc called him Jorge Lopez) hit a double and scored on Adalberto Mondesi's RBI single.

    Royals Review: Wednesday Night: Rangers at Royals

    MLB

    The Royals haven't won a series since April 14. They can finally do that tonight, and all they have to do is beat the Texas Rangers behind Jorge Lopez' right arm.

    First pitch is at 7:15 pm CDT for the Fighting Nicky Lopezes.
