5* MLB Game of the Week on Rangers -142
Motivated by suffering back-to-back losses for the first time this season, expect the Rangers to bounce back in a big way this evening against a team they have owned.
The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 games versus Cleveland, winning those games by an average of 4.8 runs. The Rangers are 21-5 in the last 26 meetings overall and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Cleveland.
Texas is 3-0 in Lewis' last 3 starts, during which he has posted an ERA of 2.25. It has won those starts by an average of 8.0 runs. The Rangers are also 4-0 in Lewis' last 4 starts on 5 days' rest and 5-0 in his last 5 Friday starts. The Rangers are also 4-0 all-time in his starts versus Cleveland, winning those by an average of 3.5 runs.
Gomez has been solid on the mound for the Indians, but he hasn't been as good as Lewis. Plus, Cleveland's bats don't stack up with the Texas sticks. Take Texas.
