The Rangers begin a 12-game road stretch with a pair of games in Cleveland. Texas won 2 out of 3 against the Indians during their 12-game home stand. The Indians have lost 6 of their last 8. Pitching has been Cleveland's downfall. The Indians have allowed the most runs in the AL and only one team in the league has a worse starters ERA and only one team has a worse bullpen ERA. Only two teams in the league have a worse OBP than Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Reds have traded CF Bobby Tolan to the Oakland Athletics for SP Blue Moon Odom and 2B Jerry Royster.

The Rangers are in Baltimore for a weekend series against the Orioles. Baltimore has the best record in all of baseball. The Orioles just saw an 8 game winning streak come to an end against Kansas City. Baltimore is 10-2 in the month of June. The Orioles took 2 out of 3 against the Rangers in Texas at the beginning of the month. Baltimore leads the league in batting average, OBP, stolen bases, runs against, starters ERA, bullpen ERA and defensive efficiency. The Orioles are third in the league in runs scored. Only teams, Texas being one of them, have hit fewer home runs than Baltimore.
