Perez Aiming to Match Rangers Record for Most Consecutive Wins

Texas Rangers pitcher Martin Perez has been pitching out of his mind of late and can match the franchise record by winning his eighth consecutive start when the Rangers do battle with the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Mariners’ last eight games against their division.
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the Rangers’ last nine games after a loss.
  • The Mariners are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games on the road against the Rangers.

MyBookie opened the M’s as -108 road faves with a total of 11.

Perez (12-10, 4.81 ERA) still owns a relatively high ERA despite the aforementioned winning streak, as opposing batters are sporting a lofty .306 batting average against him in 2017. The 26-year-old has become one of three pitchers in franchise history to win at least six straight outings. Perez is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three turns against Seattle this year.

Countering for the Mariners is Mike Leake (9-12, 4.10). Leake is making his third start for the M’s since being acquired from St. Louis and won both of his first two outings. The hurler is 0-1 with a 2.33 ERA in three career starts vs the Rangers.

The Mariners haven’t exactly been road warriors of late. In Seattle’s last seven away from home, they’re a brutal 1-6 SU.
