The division rival Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics are set to renew hostilities on Friday when they meet at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The Rangers will trot Nick Martinez out to the mound in this one. Right hander Martinez has a 3-4 record and a 5.38 ERA this season.

Martinez’s opponent in this one will be Kendall Graveman. The Athletics right hander has a 4.54 ERA to go along with a 3-4 record this season.

Martinez is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to start in place of Tyson Ross, who was moved to the bullpen. The 27-year-old Martinez made 13 starts and three relief appearances with Texas earlier this season, going 3-4 with a 5.38 ERA. A native of Florida, he allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision against Oakland on May 13 and is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA in 12 career appearances (eight starts) versus the Athletics.

Graveman was a hard-luck loser last time out as he gave up only two runs over six innings in a setback at Houston on Saturday. The 26-year-old native of Alabama has dropped four of his last five road outings, with a no-decision at Texas on May 14 being the lone non-loss. Graveman defeated the Rangers on the road on April 8 to even his career record against them at 2-2 in six starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Athletics listed as 127-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Texas Rangers find themselves just one game out of the second wild-card spot in the American League and hope to grab hold of the berth over the weekend as they begin a three-game series against the host Oakland Athletics on Friday. Texas began its 10-game road trip by taking three of four from the Los Angeles Angels, who are just one-half game back in the wild-card race.

Texas registered only five hits in Thursday’s 3-0 triumph at Los Angeles, although two were home runs by Drew Robinson and Mike Napoli. The 25-year-old Robinson, who had not gone deep since July 16, enters Friday with a five-game hitting streak. Oakland returns home after completing a 2-4 road trip with an 8-7 loss at Baltimore on Thursday. Matt Joyce homered in the setback and is one blast shy of reaching 20 for the first time in his career while rookie Boog Powell is riding a five-game hitting streak that has featured a pair of three-hit performances.

Last time out for Oakland, they were a 8-7 loser as they battled the Orioles on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Orioles at -192 were rewarded, while the 15 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Texas, they were a 3-0 winner as they battled the Angels on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Rangers at 143 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
