Tuesday teams are back at it on the diamond as there are a couple of twin bills which means there will be 17 games total on the Tuesday evening docket.

One game that has the attention of many will be down in Florida at 7:10pm, as the Texas Rangers, led by starter Kyle Gibson, take on the 5-5 Tampa Bay Rays.

The Rangers enter Tuesday's action with a mark of 3-7, with Gibson sitting at 1-0 and a 7.11 ERA to start the season

Texas has been struggling, as they were hitless against the Padres last week. They have also been shutout in three of the last four games (1-0, 2-0 and 3-0).

While Texas remains in a funk on offense, the Rays are hitting the ball just fine, scoring 14 runs over the last three games and taking two of three against the Miami Marlins.

The Rays will give the ball on the bump to Ryan Yarbrough, who has started the season 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA. Last Wednesday, he gave up nine runs to the Red Sox, striking out two and walking one in the eventual Boston 9-2 win.

The Rangers need to execute much better at the plate if they want to steal one Tuesday on the road. They have the talent to do it, and with Gibson on the hill, it's a good bet to lay the odds (-180) and see if you can sneak a win.
