Rangers @ Dodgers

Who will WIN this matchup?

Texas Rangers (24-39)

@ Los Angeles Dodgers (37-25)


Starting Pitchers:

Foltynewicz (TEX): 1-6; 4.75 ERA

Kershaw (LAD) 7-5; 3.66 ERA


Current odds:

Texas Rangers: (+295)

Los Angeles Dodgers: (-350)


The Dodgers also are on a shaky run, at least by their standards, needing a just-completed three-game sweep at Pittsburgh to improve to 7-7 since May 26. They enter a six-game homestand and are still working to distance themselves from a 5-15 stretch (April 18-May 9).

The Rangers will send right-hander Mike Foltynewicz (1-6, 4.75 ERA) to the mound Friday. He gave up five runs in just 3 2/3 innings of a loss to the Colorado Rockies on June 3 but had three starts in May during which he did not give up more than two earned runs. Foltynewicz, who is 1-2 lifetime against the Dodgers in four starts with a 5.73 ERA, struggles against Los Angeles outfielder AJ Pollock (6-for-10, one home run).

The Rangers will have a challenge ahead starting with a matchup against Clayton Kershaw (7-5, 3.66) on Friday, followed by Los Angeles starters Trevor Bauer (Saturday) and Walker Buehler (Sunday). Kershaw, however, has struggled in his last two outings, giving up five earned runs in each.

Kershaw has just one career start against the Rangers, giving up four runs (three earned) over six innings while losing a 2015 outing.
