The Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners will play the 2nd game of the series at the T-Mobile Park on tuesday night. The Mariners took the win 4-3 in the first game of the series. Ty France hit his 13th home run as part of a three-hit night, Cal Raleigh added an RBI single, and the Mariners bounced back from a rough weekend.
The Mariners get here with a 52-43 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.07 runs per game. They're batting for .235 AVG, 393 runs scored in 755 hits and 106 home runs, ranking #24 in offense in the league, behind the Baltimore Orioles. Eugenio Suarez leads with 51 RBI and 16 home runs and batting for .240 avg. Ty France has the best batting average with .306.
Defensively are allowing 3.79 runs per game, ranking #4 in the league. Logan Gilbert leads the team with 10 wins and pitching for a 2.77 ERA and 112 strikeouts.
George Kirby (2-3, 3.78 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mariners in the 2nd game of the series. The Mariners plan to call up Kirby from Triple-A Tacoma to start Tuesday's home game against the Rangers. He has allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 3 strikeouts in 6 innings versus the Rangers in his career.
The Rangers get here with a 43-52 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.58 runs per game and they're batting for .240 AVG, have 430 runs scored in 772 hits and 121 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. Adolis Garcia leads with 58 RBI and 17 home runs while Corey Seager has 23 homers and 53 RBI.
Defensively as they are allowing 4.47 runs per game and rank #21 in the league. Martin Perez leads the pitching staff with a 2.59 ERA, 101 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Rangers.
Dane Dunning (1-6, 4.42 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rangers in the 2nd game of the series. On Thursday, Dunning (ankle) pitched five innings for the Arizona Complex League club of the Rangers, giving up two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out nine. He is 1-1 with an ERA of 3.94 and 20 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Mariners in his career.
Texas Rangers are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
Texas Rangers are 3-18 SU in their last 21 games when playing on the road against Seattle.
Seattle Mariners are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Seattle's last 7 games against an opponent in the American League.
The Mariners bounced back and beat the Rangers again in a very close game and they're now 9-2 against the Rangers this season. George Kirby will start for the Mariners who has been up and down this season but held the Rangers to 2 runs for 6 innings. The Rangers will send Dane Dunning to the mound who has struggled lately but had a good game against the Mariners earlier this season. I think both offense will be better this time so the best play is the over.
PICK: Over 8 (-110)
