It's another tight one Tuesday with Texas around -105 and Arizona -115 with some movement.  The total was pretty much 9.5 across the board without any movement as of early afternoon.

Action was 72% on Arizona as they come into this game 1-2 following last night's road victory by the Rangers.  This looks like a battle of the bullpens for Halloween night.

Andrew Heaney has a 6.00 ERA in the post season thus far with zero wins for the Rangers.

Heaney allowed five of the seven batters he faced to reach base safely and was lifted after throwing just 22 pitches (12 strikes) in a disastrous opening frame his last start in Game 4 of the ALCS against Houston.  He pitched briefly against Arizona in Game 1.

Overall, the Diamondbacks have faced Heaney 38 times and gotten 8 hits including 4 home runs and 8 RBIs.  Christian Walker is 2 for 3 with two of those four homers against him.

Texas has a few starters pitching out of the bullpen outside of Heaney including lefty Martín Pérez and righty Dane Dunning.

It is not expected that Heaney will last for more than a couple of innings. 

Perez has been beaten up pretty bad by the Diamondbacks.  They have 16 RBIs and 3 home runs against him in 55 tries.  Evan Longoria is 7 of 17 against him with two homers. Arizona will like turn to a series of three- to six-out guys.

Joe Mantiply starts for Arizona.  He started Game 4 of the NLCS for the Phillies and worked a scoreless first inning in a game that the Diamondbacks would end up victorious.
