(MLB) Texas vs. Detroit, 07/22/2021 1:10 PM, Score: 5 - 7
Money Line: -135.00 Detroit (Home)
Result: Win
This is an 8* on DETROIT

Detroit is 6-0 since the All-Star Break and all signs point to them finishing off their second straight sweep. They’ve won three in a row over the Rangers, whose second half is off to a much different start. Texas has not won a game since July 9th as the losing streak hit eight with yesterday’s 4-2 loss. The most embarrassing thing of all is that Texas has failed to score more than two runs in any of its last seven games. They’ve been shutout three times, once by Detroit (14-0 in series opener) and scored a total of six runs in those last seven contests. The Rangers have the third worst record in baseball and are 13-36 on the road, 0-11 when the money line is +125 to -125. As if things couldn’t get any worse, they’ve got Mike Foltynewicz on the hill Thursday. After giving up 10 runs in an inning and two-thirds last week vs Toronto, Foltynewicz has a 6-13 team start record. He’s allowed at least one home run in nine straight starts. The last two starts have seen him give up a total of seven long balls. Detroit, whose pitching has given up a total of seven runs during its six-game win streak, will turn to Tyler Alexander today. This is a good matchup for the lefty as Texas is barely hitting over .100 its last eight games. The Rangers are 0-9 the L9 times they’ve lost the first three games of a series. Play on DETROIT
