2:05 EST in Texas. The Rangers are slightly favored -120 and Detroit is +110 and the total is 9.5 runs.

The pitching matchup is one of a couple wiley old veterans. Francisco Liriano is pitching for the Tigers. The 34 year old has over 100 wins in his career and 280 games started. He is having a great year at 3-1 with a 2.97 ERA, lower than his career average of 4.12

Bartolo Colon is on the mound for Texas. This guy is going to pitch until they have to hit him with a tranquilizer dart and drag him off. The 44 year old pitcher has 241 wins in 533 starts. This year he is also having a decent year with a 1-1 record and 3.29 ERA. This game should be sponsored by Ben Gay.

Both teams have about the same record. 14 wins and 20 losses give or take. Detroit has lost two in a row. Texas has just a one game win streak. I am going to pick Texas to win this game. Bartolo in the day time should be able to put up a fight. Texas's relievers are averaging three full innings a game in their last three games and this one should be no different.

If Texas can squeak ahead of Minnesota late, they can hang on to the lead and pull out a narrow victory. I am taking Texas and Colon.
