The Seattle Mariners take on the Texas Rangers in Arlington. Both teams have impressive records, 30-22 and 31-22 respectively.
The Mariners have won 2 of their last 3 in San Diego, while the Rangers have won 4 of their last 5 games.
Walker goes for the Mariners with a 2-5 record and a 3.31 era. Darvish goes for the Rangers at 1-0 with a 1.80 era.
The Mariners are just 5-5 in their last 10 games but have won 2 of their last 3 games.
They’ve been producing a lot of runs, they have 31 runs in their last 3 games and 40 runs in their last 5 games.
They are now 5th in the MLB in runs per game at 5.
They hit for average at .261 ranking them 9th in the MLB but they especially hit for power, as they are 1st in the MLB with 78 long balls this season!
They have also been difficult to score against this season.
They rank 6th in runs allowed and 4th in batting average against.
Walker has contributed to this success early on with a 3.31 era and 1.12 whip but lately has struggled immensely. He’s given up at least 3 runs in his last 6 starts and at least 4 runs in his last 4 starts.
He’s given up 5 runs in his last 2 starts as well. He seems to be getting worse with each start. Earlier this season he gave up just 1 to the Rangers but that was nearly 2 months ago
The Rangers are rolling lately, winning 4 of their last 5 games and 9 of their last 12 games.
They’ve really started to produce offensively as well, they’ve scored 31 runs in their last 5 games and 47 in their last 7 games.
They are now 8th in the league in terms of runs per game with 4.7. They are right behind the Mariners in team batting average at .261.
Darvish made his first start on May 28th and gave up just 1 run over 5 innings.
He’s usually solid when he’s on the mound. He was limited to just 81 pitches and the Rangers might be careful with him in his second start of the season.
We would expect him to go more than 80 pitches this time though.

Free Seattle Mariners vs Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Both teams have been impressive this season and both teams as of late are putting up a bunch of runs. As a team, Mariners are hitting .261 while the Rangers are hitting .260.
Mariners can hit the long ball much more frequently than the Rangers, which can always change the game with one swing but the pitching matchup favours the Rangers. I like the Rangers in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rangers ML
Both teams are scoring a lot and their totals have been over 13 of their last 14 games combined. Walker is struggling and Darvish may be on a pitch restriction in his 2nd start off the DL.
Take the over.
