Ron's MLB Thursday Night Slammer
Texas Rangers at San Diego Padres
Thursday, August 20, 2020 at 8:10 pm
The Rangers take on the Padres in game four of their series.
San Diego has the Rangers' number, as they have won all three games of the series thus far. I think the Padres have the biggest advantage regarding the pitching matchup on Thursday, with Lamet taking on Kyle Gibson. I expect the Padres to score runs early and often off Gibson and company, and I like Lamet to continue to pitch well for the Padres at home. It is not always easy to lay 1.5 runs at home, but I like San Diego to bash the ball like they have all series long. I will lay the runs with the Padres, as I see them winning this game comfortably.
