Martín Pérez with his sights set on his fifth award

He has three no-decision duels in a row and wants to stop that streak against the Phillies

The last time that Martín Pérez was credited with a victory in this 2022 campaign with the Texas Rangers It was last May 31 at Globe Life Field (his team shut out the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 that day) and from then on, the star Venezuelan pitcher doesn't know what it's like to feel the sensation of doing homework favor of the club, which motivated the left-hander to go out tonight at 8:05 pm against the Philadelphia Phillies with the mission of returning to the winning route in the campaign and claiming the fifth award of his private account.

Even though the Guanare native was not out of place on the mound in those games against the Seattle Mariners, Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers respectively, the offensive support of his teammates was not enough to win more easily.

Despite this, Pérez will have a new opportunity to rediscover himself and especially in his own backyard, where he historically has a record of 27 wins and 20 losses with an ERA of 4.33 in 76 starts when he plays in Arlington.

Within these presentations, the Venezuelan worked for 411 episodes (2 CL, 198 BB and 136 P). As far as his challenges against the Phillies are concerned, Pérez has a favorable advantage: 256-2 in seven starts, 1 acts, 37 earned runs, 15 walks and 17 strikeouts for an ERA of 34.

to cut the handicap

Texas is located in the third box of the Western Division of the American League and is not that far from the Houston Astros (líderhe's from the area) and if he beats Philly, he can continue to close the gap in terms of games.

However, the Arlington team will face one of the hottest teams in recent weeks in Major League Baseball and even more so when Joe Girardi was fired on June 3, since then he has a record of 14 wins. and three losses.

Under Canadian manager Rob Thomson, the Phillies are 14-3 in the last 17 games played and will have Kyle Gibson (4-2, 4.04 ERA in 2022) on the mound to try to contain the local team.
