Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Friday when the Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers meet at Globe Life Park.

Jesse Hahn will be the starting pitcher for the Athletics on this day. Right hander Hahn is 1-2 this season with a 2.78 ERA.

The Rangers will counter Hahn with Andrew Cashner. Right hander Cashner has a 2.63 ERA to go along with a 0-3 record this season.

After working at least six innings in each of his previous four turns, Hahn allowed four runs for the second straight start and issued four walks in 3 2/3 frames of Saturday’s no-decision versus Detroit. The 27-year-old has pitched well in a pair of six-inning outings against Texas this season, permitting two runs in a no-decision on April 7 before picking up his lone win 12 days later after yielding one run on two hits. Hahn has faced the Rangers on three other previous occasions, posting a 1-1 career mark with a 4.13 ERA.

Cashner’s hard-luck season continued on Sunday as the 30-year-old received a no-decision despite allowing one run on four hits in six innings at Seattle. Cashner, who is still in search of his first win, permitted five earned runs over his last four outings and limited the opposition to a .208 batting average this season. He hasn’t done himself any favors with his control, however, as he has walked 19 batters in 27 1/3 innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rangers listed as 114-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Texas Rangers answered an offensive malaise in which they scored six runs during a three-game losing skid by erupting for 20 during their current three-game winning streak. The Rangers look to continue to swing loud bats on Friday when they begin their third three-game series of the season against the Oakland Athletics, with this one at Globe Life Park.

Mike Napoli concluded his two-homer performance versus San Diego with a three-run shot in the ninth inning of Thursday’s 5-2 victory for Texas, which will bid to win four in a row for the first time since sweeping Kansas City from April 20-23. Napoli could use a jolt against the Athletics, as the 35-year-old is just 3-for-24 with 10 strikeouts in the season series. Strikeouts have been nothing new for Oakland’s Khris Davis, who is riding a club-record streak for a non-pitcher by fanning at least once in 21 consecutive games. Davis did find time to make some actual contact with an RBI single in Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, marking the Athletics’ fourth win in five outings.

In their last action, Texas was a 5-2 winner on the road against the Padres. Bettors on Texas at -133 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Oakland was a 3-1 winner in its last match on the road against the Angels. They won as -145 favorites, while the total score of 4 made winners of UNDER bettors.
