Not much has happened at the Texas Rangers this season, but Colby Allard was a pleasant surprise and he will be looking to deliver a gem against Auckland Athletics on Wednesday.
Allard started the year on a bull stick, showing relief 10 times before moving on to the turn. He was allowed two or less runs in four of five fights and only walked in four fights.
Auckland’s Chris Bassitt has conceded twice or less in 12 of his last 14 games and has a career-best 3.9 strike rate with 7.2 hits in nine minutes. Throughout his career, Bassitt has not been on the road with 2.68 home ERAs, with 0.5 homeowners in 9 collisions (4.38 ERAs and 1.3 on the road). , worked better at home.
With Rangers scoring less than four in nine of the 11 games in this series, and with Athletic having their best third-round of the AL in June, it will be hard to get a run.
Game: Rangers-A total, up to 8 years old.
