The Rangers have some work to do at 32-35, but it wouldn’t be a complete shock to see them matching up with the Dodgers in a few months in the Fall Classic. The 2023 champion Texas and the 2024 favorite Los Angeles have split their series so far this week in L.A., which means the rubber match has a lot lying on it prior to a potential rematch in October.

Before Betting on June 13 Rangers vs Dodgers

Los Angeles has the more impressive win of the last two games, taking Tuesday’s opener in a dominating 15-2 fashion when the Dodgers hit 4HRs in the sixth inning alone. Texas was able to even things up on Wednesday as Corey Seager retuned to the lineup with a 3-run HR against his former team to give the Rangers a 3-2 victory.

Michael Lorenzen (3-3, 3.05 ERA) tries to stay hot as the Anaheim native returns to the West Coast. Lorenzen has allowed just 2 ER in two starts this month, his fifth straight outing giving up 2 ERs or less. The right-hander hasn’t given up a HR to any Dodgers batter in 53 combined ABs, so he hopes the L.A. power surge subsides on Thursday.

Michael Grove will pitch the first inning as Los Angeles prepares for a bullpen day as Yoshinobu Yamamoto had his scheduled start pushed back to the weekend. New York has the best bullpen in baseball this season with a 2.89 team ERA.

June 13 Rangers vs Dodgers Prediction & Pick

Los Angeles has a great bullpen, but getting 1-2 innings at a time from a reliever isn’t ideal against this Texas offense. Lorenzen has been pitching well, and the Rangers have the better value in this spot even on the road. 

Pick: Rangers ML
