The Texas Rangers will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Wednesday when they take on the Boston Red Sox at Globe Life Park.

The Red Sox will trot Doug Fister out to the mound in this one. Right hander Fister has a 0-1 record and a 4.91 ERA this season.

Fister’s opponent in this one will be Andrew Cashner. The Rangers right hander has a 3.87 ERA to go along with a 3-7 record this season.

Fister was solid in each of his first two starts after being picked up by Boston but is still looking for his first win. The California native yielded only four hits at Toronto on Friday but also walked three and was charged with three runs in five innings without factoring in the decision. Fister spent last season with Houston in the AL West and made five starts against Texas, posting a 1-2 record with a 4.73 ERA.

Cashner spent two weeks on the disabled list with an oblique injury only to return on Thursday at Cleveland and get hit on the right elbow by a broken bat. The 30-year-old was diagnosed with just a bruise and ended up charged with five runs and six hits in five-plus innings to suffer a loss. Cashner was not at his best in Boston on May 23, when he issued a season-high four walks and allowed five runs and six hits in five frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 113-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is already running away with the American League Rookie of the Year Award, but Andrew Benintendi is still bidding to make it a two-man race. The rookie sensation will try to lead the Boston Red Sox to a three-game sweep when they visit the Texas Rangers in the series finale on Wednesday.

Benintendi certainly looks like a Rookie of the Year and MVP candidate to the Rangers, who watched him knock in the go-ahead runs in Monday’s 7-5 Red Sox win and then saw him go 5-for-5 with two home runs, six RBIs and four runs scored in Tuesday’s 11-4 drubbing. Benintendi is up to 12 homers and 50 RBIs on the season while batting .288 and he showed off his defensive prowess in left field with a leaping catch against the wall in Tuesday’s win – Boston’s sixth straight and eighth in the last nine games. Benintendi is 1-for-2 with a single and a walk in his brief career against Texas right-hander Andrew Cashner, who goes up against Red Sox righty Doug Fister on Wednesday. The Rangers are losers of three straight and six of their last seven and watched the pitching staff allow at least five runs in each of those six setbacks.

The Rangers were a 11-4 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Red Sox. That made winners of bettors who got Boston at -107 on the moneyline, while the total score (15) was good news for OVER bettors.

In their last action, Boston was a 11-4 winner on the road against the Rangers. Bettors on Boston at -107 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (15) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
