Rangers Vs Cubs should be some entertaining ball
The smoking Chicago Cubs (53-35, 1st NL Central) will host the just as hot Texas Rangers (54-36, 1st AL West) beginning tomorrow at 1:20. The three game series continues through the weekend.
While both teams ran roughshod over their opponents in the first half, both teams also struggled into the All Star break and found their division foes sneaking up on them. Now, with the second half of the season ready to break open, both teams are looking to get back into form.
“Every team goes through stretches where they don’t do enough to win ballgames,” Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre said. “We didn’t do enough in this stretch. But we can’t sit here and panic. We know we are a good team.
The Starting Pitcher for the Cubbies will be Kyle Hendrix (7-6. 2.55 ERA) who will compete against the Rangers’ Martin Perez (7-5, 3.85 ERA) Expect the Rangers to usher out Yu Darvish who is set to return from the DL list he has been on since June 9th.
