Texas and Seattle both entered this series looking to bounce back from Wednesday afternoon losses when they squared off yesterday.
Chris Flexen threw 7 shutdown innings and was backed by home runs from Tom Murphy and Jacob Nottingham and the Mariners won 5-0 over the Rangers 5-0 on Thursday night.
There’s still 3 more games in the series and the two AL West foes still have time to win it and help bolster them up in the division rankings. Seattle is currently in 3rd behind Houston and Oakland while Texas sits in last.
Seattle has been unable to overcome a pair of long losing streaks in the month of May. The Mariners dropped 5 consecutive games early in the month and then added a 6-game skid that ended on Monday.
They picked up a pair of bounce-back wins at Oakland to open the week, but they came up just short of the sweep when they lost on Wednesday.
Right fielder Mitch Haniger has led the way for the Mariners offensively, leading the team in the 3 major categories of HR’s, RBI’s and batting average. Haniger has raked in 13 homers and accounted for 33 runs batted in while boasting a .262 average.
Seattle has really struggled offensively this season and are dead last in the MLB with a team batting average of .202.
Texas has had a few winning streaks this season that have kept it from completely falling out of the American League West race. The Rangers swept the Astros in a three-game set over the weekend but were unable to build on that momentum, losing to the Angels in a pair of games this week.
Right fielder Adolis Garcia has led the way for the Rangers offensively, leading the team in the 3 major categories of HR’s, RBI’s and batting average. Garcia has cranked a team-high 16 home runs, which is tied for the most in the MLB, as well as 41 RBI’s which is good for 4th. He also as a .288 average.
The Rangers have been an average offensive club, listed at No. 17 in the MLB with a team batting average of .234.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Neither team has any momentum coming into this series, but Seattle has been the better team over the last few weeks.
This isn’t a great pitching matchup as both teams are sending out a north of 5 ERA pitcher with a losing record.
Additionally, Texas has not done well on the road, going just 9-17 to this point.
I’m taking Seattle at home to win game 2 and keep their momentum rolling into the weekend.
