PITCHING MATCHUP: Rangers LH Mike Minor (8-4, 2.73 ERA) vs. Astros RH Justin Verlander (11-4, 2.98)

Minor is enjoying the best season of his career as he is in the second year of a three-year, $28 million deal and feels comfortable with the Rangers. "I don't want to go anywhere," the 31-year-old told reporters. "My name was talked about in the offseason, so I'm used to it. It seems like ever since I signed, I've been a topic. It's like I signed here just to be traded." Minor is 3-3 with a 4.48 ERA in 14 career games (11 starts) versus Houston after giving up four runs and seven hits over five innings in a no-decision on Saturday.

Verlander defeated the Rangers on Sunday, when he gave up two runs and four hits over six innings. The 36-year-old is holding Texas batters to a collective .167 average this season and often has stymied the club while going 16-8 with a 2.79 ERA in 29 career starts. Verlander, who will be trying to move into a tie for the major-league lead in victories, is just 3-2 in eight turns at home despite posting a 2.95 ERA and 0.80 WHIP.

Five of the last six meetings have gone OVER this number.
