I'm a little concerned about Chavez and his lack of experience starting. It is so hard to know how long he can go without losing focus and getting bombed but, it's good its against Cincy. I hate to throw the youngsters against wolves, and Cincy are not wolves. Doesn't mean it will be easy but it helps.60%

I was on Texas +195 last night against Boston and lost 6-7 on two late dingers given up by Sampson. Going back to the well tonight with Texas as another big dog. Texas has been one of the best offensive teams in baseball all season long and while I don't expect to see Chavez long, I think Texas pen can do enough. I don't trust Mahle as he has struggled to keep runs off the board as of late (6.60 ERA over his last three starts), Ill take my chances with the Rangers as big dogs.50%

Texas Rangers (52% consensus). The Texas Rangers vaulted into the second wild-card slot on the back of a 19-8 tear, but a promising start to a seven-game road trip was dulled by consecutive one-run losses at defending World Series champion Boston. The Rangers will try to rebound from a crushing defeat when they visit the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night in the opener of a three-game interleague set... http://bit.ly/2GhdbL9

Dallas Morning News: Why Rougned Odor's three-walk game against Cincinnati could be a sign of good things to come for the Rangers
CINCINNATI -- It is Father's Day weekend. The summer solstice is just around the corner.
In the world of the Rangers, this seems to mean one thing: Rougned Odor's bat awakens.
On the way to a 7-1 win over Cincinnati Friday, Odor produced the most significant signs to date that maybe his long spring time nightmare is over. He walked three times and hit a game-turning grand slam to drive the Rangers' offense on a night when the bullpen worked as an ensemble in place of a designated starter.
For the night, the Rangers bullpen did what was necessary.

Redleg Nation: Rangers vs. Reds - June 14, 2019
The Texas Rangers are making a very rare appearance at Great American Ball Park for an interleague three-game weekend series beginning tonight at 7:10 p.m. Eastern time.
The Rangers are 36-32 overall, 9.5 games behind Houston and in second place in the AL West. The 30-36 Reds, of course, slipped into fourth place in the NL Central thanks to a seven-game losing streak by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Texas slugger Joey Gallo's 17 home runs and 1.074 OPS will miss this series due to injury. But the Rangers, like the Reds, have gotten outstanding production from players they signed this spring as non-roster free agents.

Red Reporter: Rangers at Reds, Game 1 - Preview and Lineups
There was a time when Ruben Sierra was one of my favorite baseball players on the planet. Or, at least I sure thought he was, since I'm pretty sure I'd never seen the Texas Rangers play a single game of baseball at that juncture of my life. Sierra's baseball cards managed to get into basically every single pack of Donruss or Topps or Upper Deck I picked up as a t-ball playing knucklehead at that time, however, so I was pretty certain he was a huge deal.
Come to think of it, I'm still not entirely certain I've ever seen the Texas Rangers play baseball.
Fansided: Cincinnati Reds: Nick Senzel to lead the charge against the Texas Rangers
For the first time since early April, the Cincinnati Reds (30-36) enter play on Friday out of the NL Central cellar. Following a 3-4 road trip to St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Cleveland, the Reds return home in 4th place in the National League Central. After Wednesday's 7-run outburst against the Indians, the Reds' bats look to keep the positive momentum going against the Texas Rangers.
Through the first 66 games of the 2019 season, the Reds offense have found the luxuries of home to be more to their liking. Producing a slash line of .247/.326/.448 in 30 games at Great American Ball Park, the Reds have given their fans 49 souvenirs via the long ball.
