Rangers Have Been Fade Material in Washington

The Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers are barely hanging on in the American League wild-card race and simply can’t afford any more losses with the postseason drawing near. The AL West clubs will do battle on the diamond on Tuesday, where sportsbooks opened the M’s as -153 home faves with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Rangers’ last six games as a moneyline underdog of 145 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Mariners’ last six games at home.
  • The Mariners are 6-0 SU in their last six games with one day off between games.

Martin Perez and Mike Leake are the probable starters in this one. Perez (12-11, 4.82 ERA) saw his streak of seven wins in as many starts come to an end against Seattle on Wednesday when the Mariners got to him for three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5.1 innings. The hurler is 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA and 28 hits in four starts against the Mariners this year.

Leake (10-12, 4.01) hasn’t suffered a loss since coming over in a trade from St. Louis last month and outdueled Perez last week. The hurler has recorded 17 strikeouts and two walks over 18.2 innings during that span while allowing only five earned runs.

Overall, the Rangers haven’t enjoyed their trips to the northwest of late. In Texas’ last eight in Seattle, the Rangers are a measly 1-7 SU.
