We go over how you can watch Saturday’s MLB Network game between the Rangers and Astros.

MLB Network will host Saturday’s matchup between the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros with first pitch set for 7:10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, and will also air on Bally Sports Southwest in the Rangers market and on AT&T Sportsnet Southwest in the Astros market. Jon Gray (1-1, 3.00 ERA) takes the mound for Texas, while Houston counters with youngster Hunter Brown (1-0, 3.09 ERA).

The Rangers took game one on Friday night to move atop the AL West at 8-5, as Texas looks to return to the postseason after spending big over the winter. The team has been driven by its starting pitching so far, as holdovers Gray and Martin Perez have been rock solid while new additions Jacob deGrom and Andrew Heaney have started to hit their stride.

The Astros are off to a disappointing start at 6-8, and it’s not hard to see why: The team’s star-studded lineup looks like a shell of itself, with Jose Altuve still on the shelf after his World Baseball Classic injury while Jose Abreu, Alex Bregman and Jeremy Pena stumble out of the gates.

Houston is currently a -180 favorite on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook, while the Rangers are +155 underdogs. The run total is set at 8.
