Robinson Cano hit 4 HR in the opening series against the Rangers, but in the Oakland series he was only 2/12 with 1 extra base hit. Still, he has hit in 11 straight games facing the Rangers where he is batting .341.
Hisashi Iwakuma gets the start tonight and in his first start of the season facing the Mariners he did not get a decision after going 5 innings and giving up 2 runs in a 10-2 win.
