Michael Young, Texas Rangers – 1-5

Ian Kinsler, Texas Rangers
As President of the Ian Kinsler Fan Club, it’s pretty difficult to pick against him on Tuesday. In his past 10 games, Kinsler is hitting .571 (24-42), including a four for five effort last night.
Kinsler has a hit in each of those 10 games. Against Angels’ pitcher Joe Saunders, Kinsler is hitting .533 (8-15). Saunders’ opponent’s batting average is at .239, but Kinsler’s recent success suggest he’ll get at least one hit.
Brian Roberts, Baltimore Orioles
Roberts has a great track record against Blue Jays’ starter Dustin McGowan. He’s five for 11 lifetime, with a homer and no strikeouts. Roberts also has hits in eight of his last 10 games. Here’s a stat for you: Roberts is hitting .396 on turf, and tonight’s game is on artificial turf in Toronto.
