Yovani Gallardo finished with a 13-11 record with the Rangers last season before signing a huge $22 million dollar contract with Baltimore. The 30 year old Mexican enjoyed quite some success in Arlington, winning 8 of his 14 decisions last year that helped the Rangers into a playoff berth. He’s in 1-0 this year with his new team and was lucky earlier this week with a no decision when he allowed 5 runs and 7 hits in just 5 innings against the Red Sox.
But the Orioles have some serious offensive firepower and it was quite obvious last night when Mark Trumbo, their new off season acquisition went deep twice as he increased his home run total this season to already 5 in his last 5 games 11 RBI on top. Their second baseman Jonathan Schoop also went deep twice last night and has a hit in every game this season but one.
The pitcher for tonight for the Rangers will be Colby Lewis. He picked up his 1st win of the regular season this Monday when he only allowed a run and 4 hits in 6 innings during their 7-3 victory against the Mariners. He also managed to beat the Orioles last time they met but has a 2-4 record overall against them. Their rookie Nomar Mazara is 9 for 23 this season with 4 RBI in 6 contests, while center fielder, Deline DeShields has one homer and is 8 for 17. He has 4 runs scored in his last 4 games.
