Rangers Struggling With Consistency In Seattle

The Texas Rangers won the series opener against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday but those victories have been few and far between at Safeco Field. The Rangers are 3-8 in their past 11 games in the Emerald City and have not won back-to-back games in Seattle since June 2016.

SHARK BITES
  • The Mariners are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last 6 games after losing as a favorite.
  • The Rangers are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road against the Mariners.
  • Kyle Seager is 6-for-18 with 2 HRs and 6 RBIs in his career vs Andrew Cashner.

Andrew Cashner will make his second consecutive start against the Mariners when he takes the bump in this one. The Rangers right-hander allowed five runs and walked five batters in 4.1 innings of work when he faced the M’s last Thursday. That was a bit of an anomaly for Cashner, as he has held opponents to three or fewer runs in nine of 11 starts since the all-star break.

This will be Felix Hernandez’ third straight start against the Rangers spread out over nearly two months with the veteran finding himself on the IR. King Felix faced off against the Rangers and Cashner last Thursday, allowing just one run, but he was on a strict pitch count. Hernandez will also be on a strict pitch count Wednesday.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
