As aforementioned, the Rangers enter riding a 3-game losing streak. With those losses accounted for, Texas has now fallen to 12-11 on the season. All in all that ranks them 3rd overall in the AL West, placing them a total of 2 ½ games behind the division leading Houston Astros. Additionally, the Seattle Mariners rank ahead of Texas in the AL West rankings by a ½ game margin. Overall this gives tonight’s matchup extreme importance in the AL West race. Tonight’s MLB baseball betting odds are pegging Texas as the underdog on the road here, stating that the Rangers will continue to slide down the divisional ladder. To ensure that doesn’t happen, Texas will be sending Taylor Hearn to the mound tonight. Hearn is making his first start of the season so there’s no telling how he’ll perform.
Players to Watch: Elvis Andrus (3 HR, 15 RBI, .3445 BA), Shin-Soo Choo (1 HR, 8 RBI, .304 BA), and Asdrubal Cabrera (6 HR, 17 RBI, .240 BA).
The Mariners have lost three in a row and are now sitting on a 16-11 record. All things considered, that 3-game losing streak has chipped away at Seattle’s AL West lead and is now forcing them down the divisional ladder. Barring some rebound, Seattle will continue to plummet, ultimately being usurped by tonight’s opponent. Fortunately for Seattle, Texas doesn’t really bring much momentum into their stadium this evening. And to ensure that the Rangers come out losing here, Seattle will be sticking with Marco Gonzales tonight. Gonzales is 4-0 so far this season and also wields a 3.32 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Mitch Haniger (7 HR, 18 RBI, .266 BA), Domingo Santana (5 HR, 27 RBI, .306 BA), and Ryon Healy (5 HR, 17 RBI, .216 BA).
