Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
The Rangers are a team that the Mariners needs to take care of. They did so on Friday and I look for them to complete the sweep on Sunday.
Seattle is the better team and so far they have showed that when facing the Rangers this year. I also have very little confidence backing the Rangers here.
I expect Seattle to hit around Mike Foltynewicz enough to get a win.
I am going with the Rangers on the moneyline in this one.
