Rangers vs. Indians Preview: Feldman Looks To Shake Off Recent Struggles

The Texas Rangers go in to Progressive Field to face the Cleveland Indians on Saturday with their eye on widening the gap with the Oakland A's in the AL West. Texas sends Scott Feldman to the bump, who is looking to rebound from a rough August. Feldman is 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA in his last four starts and 2-4 on the road this season with a 6.21 ERA.

The Rangers held off a Cleveland comeback Friday night to win the first game of the three game series, 5-3. Ryan Dempster allowed only two hits, one walk and an unearned run through six innings. The win kept the Rangers lead over the surging A's, winners of seven in a row, at four games heading in to the final month of the season.

Indians right hander Jeanmar Gomez takes the bump for the injured Roberto Hernandez. Gomez is 4-7 on the season with a 5.11 ERA. First pitch from Progressive Field is 6:05 CT.
