Rangers Vs. Indians Preview: Ryan Dempster Aiming For 5th Straight Win In Game 2

Fresh off a 6-4 win to open the series, the Texas Rangers will try to keep things rolling on Wednesday night against the Cleveland Indians in Game 2 from Arlington.

Veteran right-hander Ryan Dempster (10-6, 2.87 ERA) will take the mound for the Rangers, and enters after a stretch of four consecutive starts where he yielded two earned runs or less. The 35-year-old hurler also has managed to strike out a whopping 44 batters in just over 43 innings since arriving in Texas at the trade deadline, and continues to give manager Ron Washington quality starts whenever called upon.

Texas hitters will hope to find success against Cleveland starter Jeanmar Gomez (5-7, 5.33 ERA) in the series' second game, a youngster who has already handed the Rangers losses twice thus far in 2012. Although he has struggled mightily in his third big-league season and owns poor numbers across the board, Gomez seems to have found a comfort zone against a number of Texas batters.

First pitch for Tuesday's game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT, and can be viewed on television on Fox Sports Southwest.
