Texas Rangers Vs. Chicago White Sox: Saturday Preview, TV Schedule And More

Well, Friday didn't go exactly as planned for the Texas Rangers. The Los Angeles Angels acquired Zack Greinke, and Yu Darvish was knocked around by the Chicago White Sox in a Friday loss -- though Darvish wasn't aided by his defense any.

On Saturday, the Rangers will look to take the second game of a three-game set against the White Sox, as Matt Harrison will look for his 13th win of the season.

Harrison has arguably been Texas' best pitcher in 2012, as indicated by his 12-5 record and 3.02 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Harrison hasn't missed too many bats though, striking out just 77 in 128 and 1/3 innings -- preventing him from being a true ace. Still, Harrison will look to get the Rangers back on track on Saturday.

Harrison will be opposed by Phil Humber. Despite throwing a perfect game this year, Humber has a 6.25 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season. Humber has allowed 16 homers in just 76 and 1/3 innings this year, so the Rangers have a pretty decent chance to hit a few home runs on Saturday night.

Televised coverage can be found on FOX Sports Southwest. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT.
