Recently, it has been a series of streaks for the Angels. Prior to heading out on the road, the Angels stopped the Indians' 8-game win streak. In Chicago, their 7-game losing streak at the hands of the White Sox was ended. Their own small 5-game win streak ended last night with a 7-1 loss in Arlington during the first of their 3-game series against the Rangers. Tonight, the Angels look to end Texas' perfect record at home since the beginning of this season.
Matt Palmer (0-0, 7.71 ERA) will make his second start of the season. In his first start Palmer went 4.2 innings against Toronto. In that game he surrendered 5 runs (4 earned) and 10 hits, while walking one and striking out two. His only start against the Rangers was during the 2009 season when he pitched one-hit ball over five innings.
The Rangers will be starting Colby Lewis (1-1, 5.25 ERA). Lewis also gave up 5 runs in his last start, a 5-0 loss facing the Orioles. He is 3-2 in seven starts against the Halos, with a 4.35 ERA. Last season in two starts, Lewis was 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA.
Game time is 5:05 (Pacific) and will be broadcast on FSW. For more information, be sure to check Halos Heaven.
