This is a 1* prediction on the “over” between the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers on Monday night (8:05 EST).
The 39-year old Bartolo Colon (3-2, 4.56 ERA) toes the rubber for the visitors; Colon faced the Rangers last Tuesday and gave up three runs off four hits with a walk and zero K’s over six frames of work, settling for a no-decision in the end. The veteran will be opposed by the 25-year old Josh Lindblom (3-5, 3.55 ERA) who was called up from Triple-A Round Rock after Alexi Ogando was moved to the DL. Lindblom had success in the minors but has yet to prove himself in any extended manner in the bigs. Note that the A’s have seen the total go “over” the number in 29 of 44 so far this year, which includes in 15 of 22 on the road. Suspect starters vs. explosive line-ups; the stage is set for a slugfest in the opener of this three game set.
