The two best teams in the American League West meet up again in Texas as the Seattle Mariners take on the Rangers. Both of these teams have surpassed expectations thus far and will look to ride that success into the dog days of summer.
A pair of quality pitchers will square off in this one as well, as Seattle sends Nathan Karns to the mound against the lefty Martin Perez.
The Mariners continue to struggle at Safeco Field, but their 18-10 road record is one of the best in the majors.
Robinson Cano is having a tremendous season, and the Mariners offense is playing the best it’s played since the days of Ichiro Suzuki and Richie Sexson.
Seattle is 5th in runs, 9th in average and 4th in slugging percentage. The M’s 78 homers rank 1st in the big leagues, and they’ll face a Texas pitching staff that ranks 27th in home runs allowed.
The Mariners will send Karns to the mound, a starting pitcher who hasn’t gotten the respect he deserves.
Karns comes in with a 5-1 record and a 3.43 ERA. He’s only allowed six runs over his last three starts and has a K/BB ratio of 5/1 in that span.
The Mariners have also fared well when he’s taken the mound, posting an 8-2 record overall.
While the Mariners possess one of the best road records in baseball, the Rangers have been every bit as good at home.
Texas has won 66 percent of its home games, and the Rangers find themselves in a heated battle with the Mariners for first place in the AL West.
The Rangers are mediocre both offensively and defensively, yet they find themselves nearly 10 games over .500.
Martin Perez will get the start for the Rangers, and he’ll look to capitalize off his previous start where he allowed just two runs on six hits in a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Rangers’ lefty has been dominant at home, posting an ERA of just 2.23 inside Globe Life Park in Arlington. Perez has been the victim of a lack of run support all year, despite pitching well for most of the season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Mariners are 18-10 on the road.
- Mariners are 14-14 vs. AL West.
- Mariners are 8-2 when Karns pitches.
- Rangers are 23-15 in night games.
- Rangers are 15-10 vs. AL West.
Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Both teams will be in for a battle as the season progresses, but I like Nathan Karns and the Mariners on the road. This will most likely be a low-scoring affair, but the Mariners have proven to be the more consistent-scoring team of the two.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML
I’m going with the better pitcher in this one. Martin Perez has been solid for the Rangers this year, but the Rangers haven’t helped him out much.
The Mariners have an uncanny ability to perform much better on the road, and I’ll ride that record with Karns and the M’s.
