Texas Rangers vs. Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

The Philadelphia Phillies battle the Texas Rangers taking place from Arlington on Wednesday afternoon. This game will conclude a short two-game set between the two teams, and the Rangers will be going for the mini sweep.

Texas was led by another strong outing by veteran southpaw Martin Perez. Perez has been outstanding this season, supporting a sub-two era, and is currently one of the favorites to win the Cy Young award. Texas is looking to surprise some people and put together a playoff run. They were aggressive in the off-season, inking contracts with two stars in Corey Seager and Marcus Semien.

The Phillies lost back-to-back games for the first time in June on Tuesday night. The Phillies have been dominant in the month of June and will look to get back on track with a road win today. They have the guy to do it as they send Zack Wheeler to the mound.

Wheeler finished second in the national league In Cy Young voting a season ago. He has been just as good this year, sporting an era of just 2.69 on the season. His best work has come in the last six weeks. Wheeler will be opposed by a veteran right-hander in the form of Jon Gray. Gray signed a big deal with Texas in the off-season, looking to lead this rotation. He enters play with a record of 2-3 and an era of 4.27. 

I am backing the Phillies on the moneyline this afternoon. I believe this is a great bounce-back spot as they come off a lackluster offensive day. This team is far too good to be shut out, and they will respond this afternoon. I give a large pitching advantage to the Phillies as well. Wheeler looks better than ever, and we should be able to hold down this Texas lineup. I will be shocked if a team as hot as Philly drops three games in a row. Let’s keep things rolling on the diamond!
