The Texas Rangers are above .500, but it hasn’t been the most convincing start to the season. There’s been a lack of consistency, no better illustrated by the team’s three straight losses to the Oakland Athletics. In those three games, the Rangers put up just 11 runs.
On Friday, the Rangers will give the start to Shelby Miller. He’s been less than stellar on the mound this year. Miller is 1-1 with a 7.63 ERA. Over his 15.1 innings of work, Miller’s given up 13 earned runs on 21 hits. He’s also struggled with pitch control and has tallied 13 walks to just six strikeouts.
Outside of the Oakland series, offense hasn’t really been the Rangers’ issue. Texas averages 5.52 runs per game and has some extremely consistent batters. Elvus Andrus is batting .345 with three homers and 15 RBIs. The true issue has been defense — the Rangers give up 5.65 runs per game.
The Seattle Mariners are, or were, playing great baseball to start the year. However, despite being five games over .500, the team has struggled as of late. The Mariners have lost seven of the last 10, including a four-game streak and most recently, a three-game streak.
Friday, the Mariners will look to get back on track and Yusei Kikuchi will be the man on the mound to help them do so. The lefty is 1-1 this season with a 4.68 ERA. In 32.2 innings of work, he’s given up 17 earned runs on 35 hits. He’s tallied 23 strikeouts to eight walks in that same span.
As far as run support goes, Seattle has been great all year. The Mariners average 6.04 runs per game and have a great set of guys at the plate. Left fielder Domingo Santana is batting .306 with five homers and a very impressive 27 RBIs. He’s a huge factor to Seattle’s scoring success.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
I don’t love Shelby Miller on the mound for Texas in this one. He’s given up a lot of runs and a lot of hits. With Seattle’s prowess at the plate, this could be a high-scoring game for the Mariners. I like Seattle to get the win on Friday.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8.5
I think Seattle will have a pretty easy time scoring in this game, especially with Miller on the mound for Texas. And the Rangers have enough talent in their batting order to bring home some runs as well.
This should be a high-scoring game.
