Rangers -115 vs Dodgers (9½)

Part of the Texas Rangers rise to first place in the AL West has been the pitching off Scott Feldman. The right-hander began the season in the bullpen with an ERA well over 10, but since becoming a starter has compiled a 5-1 record and 2.67 ERA. Los Angeles goes with veteran lefty Randy Wolf, who allowed six runs in his last start against Philadelphia.

Wolf does have a solid 3-2 record with a 3.62 ERA, but the Dodgers inability to win in AL parks is disconcerting if you like backing LA. And last night the Dodgers lost 6-0 to the Rangers, whose pitching staff has now posted back to back shutouts. It’s a cheap price for Texas, considering LA’s struggles. RANGERS

Bonus selection: Baltimore Orioles (Baltimore lefty Rich Hill is 3-0 with a 0.94 ERA lifetime against Atlanta.).
