In their last games the White Sox beat the Houston Astros 6-0 and the Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3.

The Rangers have won 3 straight and 8 of their last 10 games to move above .500. They are in 3rd place in the AL West 5.5 games back of the Houston Astros. Texas has the best road record in the Majors, but they are 5-games under .500 at home.

[dfads params=’groups=10&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The White Sox are coming off a win, but are still only 4-6 in their last 10 games. They are in the basement of the AL Central 7 games back of the Minnesota Twins.

Colby Lewis would like to forget his last start when he gave up 9 earned runs in only 2 innings of work in a 12-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians. While he was shelled in his last outing he has been stellar facing the White Sox in his last 4 starts going 4-0 with an ERA of only 0.92 and he only gave up 1 earned run in 2 wins over them last season.

In his last 3 starts overall for Lewis the Rangers have lost twice and in that span he has an ERA of 11.93.

Jeff Samardzija is coming off a solid outing when he went 7 innings and did not give up any earned runs in a 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The White Sox have won 4 of their last 5 games, including their last 3, when he has gotten the start.

The offense has not been the issue for the Rangers this season ranking 2nd in runs scored, but they only rank 24th in team ERA.

In the 4 game series with the Red Sox, which the Rangers won 3, Josh Hamilton was 5-11 with 2 HR and he hit a pinch hit 2-run double with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th in the 4-3 win over Boston in the last game.
