Why The Angels Will Cover The Spread/Win

Don't let the records fool you. While the Angels sit eight games under .500 and the Rangers hover around even, Sunday afternoon's series finale at Globe Life Field is primed to be a pitcher's duel with Jose Soriano poised to lead the Halos to victory.

Soriano has quietly put together a solid campaign, showcasing swing-and-miss stuff with a strikeout rate just under a batter per inning. His ability to keep the ball in the park will be crucial against a Rangers lineup prone to the long ball. In his last outing against a potent Guardians offense, Soriano tossed six innings of one-run ball, a performance he'll look to replicate in Arlington.

Offensively, the Angels have struggled, but they've shown flashes of brilliance. Look for Taylor Ward to continue his recent hot streak and provide some much-needed run support for Soriano.

On the other side, Michael Lorenzen has been a stabilizing force for the Rangers rotation, but he's not without his vulnerabilities. He's surrendered his fair share of hard contact and has struggled at times with his command. If the Angels can work deep counts and capitalize on mistakes, they'll be in a good position to steal a win on the road.

This game could very well come down to the bullpens, where the Angels have the slight edge. With their closer, Carlos Estévez, anchoring a solid relief corps, the Halos should feel confident in their ability to close out a tight game.

While the Rangers may be the favorites on paper, the Angels have the talent and the pitching matchup to pull off an upset. Look for Soriano to silence the Texas bats and lead the Halos to a much-needed victory.

Why The Rangers Will Cover The Spread/Win

In a clash of AL West foes, Michael Lorenzen and the Texas Rangers are primed to defend their home turf and secure a series win against the visiting Los Angeles Angels at Globe Life Field on Sunday afternoon.

Lorenzen, a seasoned veteran with a wealth of experience, has been a stabilizing force in the Rangers' rotation this season. His ability to keep hitters off balance with a diverse pitch mix and his knack for generating weak contact make him a formidable opponent for any lineup. In his previous outing against a tough Astros squad, Lorenzen displayed resilience, battling through adversity and ultimately keeping his team in the game.

Offensively, the Rangers boast a balanced lineup capable of producing runs in bunches. With Adolis Garcia's power, Corey Seager's consistency, and Nathaniel Lowe's plate discipline, Texas presents a multi-faceted attack that can exploit any weakness in the Angels' pitching staff. Look for Marcus Semien to continue his recent surge and provide a spark at the top of the order.

On the other side, Jose Soriano, while showing promise, lacks the experience and track record of Lorenzen. The young right-hander has struggled with consistency at times, leaving him vulnerable to a Rangers lineup known for their patience and ability to capitalize on mistakes.

The Angels' offense, has been inconsistent this season. Their struggles with runners in scoring position and their over-reliance on the long ball could prove to be their undoing against a Rangers pitching staff that has shown an ability to limit damage.

While the Angels have the potential to make this a close game, the Rangers' home-field advantage, combined with Lorenzen's leadership and the offensive firepower in their lineup, give them the edge in this matchup. Look for the Rangers to capitalize on Soriano's inexperience and secure a series win in front of their home crowd.

Final Angels-Rangers Prediction & Pick

In this series finale between the Angels and Rangers, both teams will be looking to get themselves into the race in the AL West. However, regarding the pitching matchup, the Rangers have a slight edge with Michael Lorenzen on the mound. While Soriano has shown flashes of brilliance with his high heat that has generated a ton of swings and misses if the Angels give him too long of a leash expect him to give up runs before he is pulled from the game. If that does happen the Rangers are a team that will capitalize on the mistakes while Lorenzen should keep the halos offense in check to get the win this Sunday afternoon.
