The Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays  will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Tropicana Field.

Darvish has gone six outings without a victory, but posted quality starts in four of his last five appearances. The 30-year-old Japan native permitted three runs (two earned) and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings of a no-decision in the 4-3 loss at Kansas City on Sunday in his first start of the second half. Brad Miller has struggled (0-for-11, three strikeouts) against Darvish, who struck out 12 over six innings to beat the Rays in their last meeting in 2016.

Cobb has been very sharp of late while allowing two or fewer runs in six of his last eight starts, including Saturday when he limited the Los Angeles Angels to one tally over 7 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old Boston native has completed at least six innings in seven straight starts and yielded three homers combined in that stretch. Shin-Soo Choo is 4-for-8 with two doubles versus Cobb, who is 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA in four career starts against Texas.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rangers listed as 126-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.
