Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
I look for the Mariners to keep up their good play in this game. Every game is so important for them at this time and they cannot afford to lose to Texas.
Seattle is the better team and I look for them to take care of a business against a weak opponent. I have very little faith that the Rangers can win this one.
I look for Tyler Anderson to have a solid outing and for the Mariners to hit around Spencer Howard.
I am going with the Mariners on the moneyline.
