The Texas Rangers will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Thursday when they take on the Oakland Athletics at Globe Life Park.

The Athletics will trot Sean Manaea out to the mound in this one. Left hander Manaea has a 11-10 record and a 4.56 ERA this season.

It’ll be Miguel Gonzalez toeing the rubber for the Rangers in this contest. Right hander Gonzalez is 8-12 with a 4.86 ERA so far this season.

Manaea has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his last six starts but he managed to get through only five innings in a win at Philadelphia his last time out and then missed a start due to back tightness. The 25-year-old defeated Texas with five innings of two-run ball at home last month and recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts in an April start in Arlington. He might be careful with shortstop Elvis Andrus (9-for-16, two doubles against Manaea) but will likely go right after second baseman Rougned Odor (0-for-13, five strikeouts).

Gonzalez has a 7.16 ERA in four starts since being acquired from the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 31. He had his best start in a Texas uniform on Saturday at Oakland, limiting the Athletics to a run and four hits over six innings of a tough loss. The 33-year-old is 0-2 with a 4.01 ERA in five career games (four starts) against Oakland.

Oddsmakers opened the Athletics as -103-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total opened at 10.5.

The Oakland Athletics look to continue their recent dominance of the Texas Rangers and perhaps pass them in the American League West standings when the teams begin a season-ending four-game series in the Lone Star State on Thursday. A walk-off homer by Mark Canha lifted the Athletics to a dramatic 6-5 win over Seattle in their home finale Wednesday.

It was their 15th win in 20 contests, a stretch that includes half of a 6-0 stretch versus the Rangers, who enter this series leading last-place Oakland by three games. Texas has been trending in the opposite direction with six straight losses, the latest a 12-2 drubbing at the hands of Houston on Wednesday. The Rangers have been outscored a mind-boggling 45-8 in the last four games and need to find the win column once more to avoid a first-to-worst drop in the division standings from 2016 to 2017. Lefty Sean Manaea gets the call for Oakland in the opener opposite struggling veteran Miguel Gonzalez for Texas.

In their last action, Texas was a 12-2 loser on the road against the Astros. Bettors on Houston at -213 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (14) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

The Athletics were a 6-5 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Mariners. That made winners of bettors who got Oakland at -106 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.
