The outlook is grim for the Oakland A’s when they take on the Texas Rangers and starting pitcher Justin Grimm today. Grimm has 27 strikeouts in 33 innings pitched at home this season and he has walked just 8 batters during that span. He should have no problems getting run support from a Rangers team that is batting .264 and scoring 5.2 runs per game against division opponents.
The Oakland A’s are batting .248 as a team and they have been struck out a total of 547 times in their 72 games. Facing a strikeout pitcher like Grimm should cause Oakland a lot of problems offensively today. When you look at Oakland statistically they perform poorly at getting on base against right handed starters. I expect to see Grimm have a solid performance and the Rangers bullpen to build on their 84.6% save percentage.
