Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers

The Mariners have lost two in a row and six of their last nine games. They are in 4th place in the AL West 12.5 games back of the Houston Astros. In losing their last two games Seattle has been outscored 16-6. Texas is hot winners of six of their last seven games and they are in 2nd place in the division 11 games back of the Astros. Their pitching has been the reason they have been winning as of late, as in the six wins in their last seven games they have only given up 13 runs while in the one loss they gave up 13 runs. The home team has dominated this series lately, as while the Mariners have won seven of their last nine games against the Rangers overall they have dropped their last seven games against them in Texas. Look for that last trend to continue in this game. Gallardo has given up more earned runs than innings pitched in his last five starts and the Texas lineup will light him up tonight. Just like Game 1 the Rangers will win and also just like Game 1 it will not be a pitcher’s duel.
