Pitching matchup

RHP Scott Feldman (8-11, 3.82 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) vs. RHP Lisalverto Bonilla (2-0, 4.30 ERA, 1.30 WHIP)

Preview

Scott Feldman makes his final start of the 2014 season tonight, and faces the Rangers for the fifth time this season. Feldman was a Ranger for eight seasons, before signing with the Orioles in 2013. So I would imagine these stars are special in a way, driven by pride or revenge to show up the team that drafted you and let you walk. Maybe that's why Feldman has a 2.30 ERA in 27 1/3 against his former team this season. He returns for second start at Globe Life Park. In his first start, only days after his father's death, Feldman pitched seven scoreless innings on April 11.

Feldman has been sharp in the month of September, posting a 2.01 ERA in three starts.

Lisalberto Bonilla makes his third start for the Rangers this season, he has allowed four runs in 11 innings in his two previous starts.

It's getting to the end, need I say more?
