This is a Free #MLB play on the Texas #Rangers RL.
The Rangers have taken two of three in this series versus the Orioles, and they wrap things up tonight at Camden Yards. Texas has won 6 of Yovani Gallardo's last nine starts, and all three losses during that span came by just one run.
Gallardo (7-6, 2.72 ERA) was flawless through 8 1/3 innings in a shutout win at Toronto his last time out. He's 4-2 with a 2.23 ERA in seven starts on the road overall this season. He's only faced the Orioles once since 2012, and he allowed three runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings in a victory in that game.
The Orioles hand the ball to Kevin Gausman, who is also coming off an outstanding performance in Toronto. Gausman (1-0, 4.24 ERA) allowed a pair of runs on four hits over five innings in a 5-3 win at Rogers Center. The 24 year old was 7-7 with a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts last year, but has spent the majority of his season working out of the bullpen.
Texas welcomed Josh Hamilton back to the lineup on Tuesday, and he was 2-for-4 in an 8-6 victory in Game 2, and then sat out last night. He could return here for the series finale.
