Free MLB Picks Analysis:
- The Marlins are just 20-21 this season when playing on the road. They are coming off another strong win over Oakland yesterday, led by the pitching of Volstad. They still sit fifth in the NL East standing this season.
- Florida will hope to earn another win here with their ace on the mound in Anibal Sanchez. The 27-year-old Sanchez has an ERA of 2.82 this season with a record of 6-1 this season. He also has a staggering total of 107 strikeouts this season.
- Texas is first in the AL West this season, backed by a strong hitting crew that has done well behind their pitchers. Yesterday they were blown up on defense by the Houston Astros, and will be looking to recover with a strong win here.
- Alexi Ogando gets the start for the Rangers in this contest. The 27-year-old pitching machine has a record of 7-3 this season with a low ERA of 2.87 for the season. Ogando is coming off three straight losing decisions.
MLB Picks Game Forecast:
The Rangers should be able to find some hitting despite going up against one of the league’s best pitchers in Sanchez. Look for Texas to play some small ball here when going up against the Marlins. Florida will need to remain consistent behind the plate if they want to keep this one close.
