The fans at Globe Life Park will be treated to a game between the Los Angeles Angels and the when they take their seats on Friday.

The Angels will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Ricky Nolasco in this game. Nolasco has a 4-9 record and a 4.06 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rangers will be Cole Hamels. The left hander has a 4.12 ERA to go along with a 3-0 record this season.

Nolasco finally put an end to a 10-start winless drought with 6 1/3 scoreless innings at the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 26 for his first victory since April 27. He followed that up by going the distance in a three-hit shutout against Seattle. “It usually takes at least 50 innings for me as a starter,” Nolasco said after the shutout. “Now it’s just that time to keep it going all the way to October.”

Hamels was rocked in his first start since his lengthy stint on the disabled list, giving up seven runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings after he was staked to a seven-run lead. He was much better last time out at the Chicago White Sox, permitting two runs on only two hits over 6 2/3 innings and not walking a batter. Albert Pujols has homered three times against Hamels but is 6-for-36 overall against him

Oddsmakers currently have the Rangers listed as 141-moneyline favorites versus the Angels, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

Left-hander Cole Hamels will make his third start since spending seven weeks on the disabled list when the Texas Rangers host the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series. It is the final series prior to the All-Star break for the two teams, who are jockeying for second place in the American League West.

Los Angeles halted a three-game skid by salvaging the finale of a three-game series at Minnesota with a 2-1 win on Wednesday. Angels right-hander Ricky Nolasco, who will oppose Hamels, appeared on the verge of being yanked from the rotation after losing seven consecutive starts but has turned things around with consecutive superb outiings. Hamels, meanwhile, is 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA in six career starts against the Angels, including seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision at Los Angeles on April 11. Texas also averted a sweep and snapped a three-game losing streak of its own with an 8-2 win over Boston on Wednesday.

Texas was a 8-2 winner in its last match on the road against the Red Sox. They won as +106 underdogs, while the total score of 10 made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Angels were a 2-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Twins. That made winners of bettors who got Los Angeles at 149 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.
