The Texas Rangers and the Oakland Athletics will meet on the field at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Saturday in a battle of division rivals.

The Rangers will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Cole Hamels in this game. Hamels has a 9-1 record and a 3.42 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Athletics will be Sean Manaea. The left hander has a 4.58 ERA to go along with a 8-8 record this season.

Hamels looks to complete August with a perfect record after going 4-0 with one complete game and a 1.86 ERA in four starts this month. The 33-year-old Californian extended his overall unbeaten streak to six outings on Monday, when he allowed two runs and three hits over seven innings in a road outing against the Los Angeles Angels. Hamels owns a 2-1 record and 2.94 ERA in five career starts against Oakland.

Manaea’s winless streak reached six starts on Aug. 18, when he gave up three runs and six hits over six innings in a loss at Houston. The 25-year-old native of Indiana has not won since defeating Cleveland on July 16 and has not been victorious on the road since limiting the Astros to one run in 5 2/3 frames despite yielding nine hits and three walks on June 27. Manaea fell to 1-2 in five career starts against the Rangers when he struck out 10 but surrendered six runs in 5 1/3 innings at Texas on April 9.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rangers listed as 114-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Texas Rangers came up short in their attempt for a third straight win but look to bounce back when they visit the Oakland Athletics on Saturday afternoon for the middle contest of their three-game set. Texas began its 10-game road trip by taking three of four from the Los Angeles Angels but dropped a 3-1 decision to Oakland in the series opener.

Elvis Andrus and Delino DeShields each recorded two hits for the Rangers, who are two games back in the wild race for the American League’s second wild-card spot. Adrian Beltre drove in the lone run for Texas on Friday and is 6-for-19 with seven RBIs over the first five games of the road trip. Oakland managed only four hits in the series opener, with two being home runs off the bat of Khris Davis. The 29-year-old Californian has hit 36 homers this year – six shy of the career high he set last season – and has gone deep three times in his last three games.

The Athletics were a 3-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Rangers. That made winners of bettors who got Oakland at -140 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Texas was a 3-1 loser on the road against the Athletics. Bettors on Oakland at -140 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
