Anderson shines despite losing record as Rangers face struggling Angels

Anderson has performed admirably this season, despite currently holding a losing record. Both teams have faced recent struggles, with the Angels losing five of their last seven games, and the Rangers dropping five of their last six. Heaney is seeking his first win of the season in mid-May, showing improvement in recent starts. The defending champions, Texas Rangers, boast a strong lineup to support their pitching staff. Conversely, the Angels are missing key player Mike Trout and have struggled to score runs without him. Therefore, the Rangers have the upper hand in this upcoming home game.
