If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers meet at Globe Life Park.

Right hander Daniel Mengden will take the mound for the Athletics to start this game. Mengden is 2-2 this season with a 3.75 ERA.

Mengden’s opponent in this one will be Cole Hamels. The Rangers left hander has a 4.10 ERA to go along with a 11-5 record this season.

Mengden looks to end the season on a positive note after having his four-start unbeaten streak snapped by Seattle on Tuesday. The 24-year-old Texan yielded four runs on five hits and three walks over six innings after producing a pair of scoreless outings, including his first career shutout on Sept. 15 at Philadelphia. Mengden made two starts against Texas in 2016 – his first season in the majors – and went 0-1 while allowing six runs (five earned) over 11 frames.

Hamels lost for the fourth time in seven starts on Tuesday, when he was tagged by Houston for six runs on six hits and four walks over a season-low three innings. It marked the third time in six September outings the 33-year-old Californian, who allowed a total of six runs in his previous three turns, has given up four or more runs. Hamels fell to 2-2 with a 4.03 ERA in six career starts against the Athletics on Aug. 26 after surrendering six runs on nine hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings.

Oddsmakers opened the Rangers as -145-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total opened at 10.

The Texas Rangers attempt to end the season with a three-game winning streak as they host the Oakland Athletics on Sunday in their 2017 finale. Texas fell out of contention for a wild-card spot thanks to a seven-game slide but have posted back-to-back victories over Oakland, including Saturday’s 8-4 triumph.

Rougned Odor went 3-for-4 with an RBI, while Joey Gallo homered twice and drove in three runs as the Rangers improved to 41-39 at home and remained tied with Seattle for third place in the American League West – one game behind the Los Angeles Angels for second. The multi-homer performance was the fourth of the season for Gallo – the most by a Ranger since 2005, when Mark Teixeira recorded five and Alfonso Soriano notched four. Matt Joyce and Marcus Semien went deep as Oakland lost for the fourth time in six contests following a seven-game winning streak. Joyce, who has shattered his previous career high in homers with 25, is two RBIs away from reaching 70 for the second time in the majors.

Last time out for Texas, they were a 8-4 winner as they battled the Athletics on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Rangers at -128 were rewarded, while the 12 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Oakland was a 8-4 loser on the road against the Rangers. Bettors on Texas at -128 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (12) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
