Texas vs. Kansas City, 09/20/2013 20:10
Money Line: +119 Texas
The Rangers are playing to protect their lead atop the Wild Card standings, and I don't think they let this game slip away to Kansas City who is sitting three games back. Martin Perez has been great this year, posting a 3.64 ERA and a 9-5 record in his 17 starts. Perez should have a big game since Kansas City has struggled against left-handed pitchers this season. The Royals have a .248 batting average and have scored just 3.8 runs per game against lefties.
Ervin Santana is an overrated pitcher. He has a decent ERA, but he rarely leaves the game putting his team in position to pick up a win. That has resulted in a mediocre 9-9 overall record, and 4-4 record at home. In his last three starts the Royals are 1-2 as a team. While the Rangers have not scored a huge number of runs this season, their 4.5 runs per game on the road is certainly good enough to beat this Royals team.
