Rangers Host Orioles On Independence Day

The Texas Rangers have to be glad that interleague play is over. After dropping two of three to the Marlins, the Rangers finished interleague play with an even 9-9 record - not something you come to expect out of a playoff team, and the defending American League champions no less. On Monday, the Rangers play host to the Orioles on Independence Day.

Colby Lewis gets the nod for the Rangers as he looks to get his own record over .500 for the first time since April 2. Lewis is 7-7 on the year with a 4.32 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. He's struck out 83 batters in 100 innings against just 27 walks thus far. Lewis, though, has given up 20 home runs, which have helped lead to a few of his disaster starts this year.

Buck Showalter will send Chris Jakubauskas to the mound to take on the Rangers. Jakubauskas does have a 2-1 record on the year - but this is another case where records are entirely misleading. The Jaku-saurus is the owner of a 5.68 ERA and 1.68 WHIP on the season, so he's been plenty hittable.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CDT.
