The AL West foes continue their weekday series as the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners play in game 2.
Both teams have started under the .500 mark, but it’s Texas that will have a chance in game 1 to get back to .500.
Texas will send out Derek Holland while Wade Miley will be making his 2nd start in a Seattle uniform.
Texas will start this week with some new faces in the clubhouse as injuries have bit them here early in the season. With very little room for error this year in what expects to be a difficult division, a lot of the veterans will have to step up if the Rangers hope to be successful early in the season.
The Rangers have averaged just 3.5 runs per game, which is well below what they need to do this season, especially being in a hitters ballpark.
Texas will go with Derek Holland here, who is making his 2nd start of the season. The Texas LH struggled in his first start, going just 5.0 innings allowing 3 runs and 2 walks while striking out 5. Holland was forced deep into counts, which ran his pitch count up early. He’ll need to keep the ball down, as he will be going against an offense that has averaged 4.17 runs per game this through their first 6.
The Mariners will look for another successful series against the Rangers, as they already have taken 2 of 3 against the this year. Seattle should have actually had a sweep, but the 1 hit allowed by Felix Hernandez, combined with errors from the defense led to the falter of the Mariners in game 1.
Offensively, look for 3B Kyle Seager to be the key here. He’s had plenty of success against the Rangers in his career, hitting 15 homeruns, including 1 during the opening series.
Seattle will throw new pitcher Wade Miley for the 2nd time this year. Miley was roughed up in his debut, going 6.0 innings, allowing 7 hits and 5 runs. He like to work quick, but sometimes he goes too quickly and loses command of his stuff. Staying relaxed and not hurrying his pitches is important for him.
