In Game 2 of this 3-game series yesterday the Rangers beat the Red Sox 2-1.

Tonight is the rubber game in this 3-game series with the Red Sox winning Game 1 and the Rangers winning Game 2. The Rangers are 5-5 in their last 10 games and they sit in 4th place in the AL West 9.5 games back of the Houston Astros. While the Red Sox are 2-games under .500 they are only 2≥5 games back of the Yankees and Rays in the AL East.

Clay Buchholz has pitched pretty well in his last couple of outings, but both were on the road and he has struggled at home as of late. He has lost his last 5 home starts and in that span he has a 6.28 ERA.

In Buchholz’s last outing he was solid going 8 innings and only giving up 1 earned run off 3 hits, but his offense and bullpen let him down in the 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners. He is 0-4 with an ERA of 5.40 in his last 5 starts against the Rangers.

The Red Sox are 3-14 in Buchholz’s last 17 home starts.

Wandy Rodriguez will be making his first career start against the Red Sox. He is a left-hander and the Red Sox are hitting only .199 as a team facing lefties this season.

In Rodriguez’s last outing he gave up a season high 5 earned runs in only 4 innings of work in a 8-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians. He is is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA in 3 road starts this season.

Texas’ Prince Fielder ranks 2nd in the AL in batting average and is in the midst of a 9-game hitting streak where he has hit 3 HR and has 9 RBI.
