A pair of quality left-handers take the mound in Seattle as the first-place Rangers take on the Mariners at Safeco Field.
With a 7-3 run over their last 10 games, the Rangers find themselves with a three-game lead over the Mariners in the AL West.
The Rangers have picked up right where they left off last season, mostly because the offense ranks top-10 in runs, hits and batting average.
The pitching has been a bit suspect, however, but those problems can be attributed to the shaky bullpen.
Cole Hamels has exceeded expectations so far, and he’ll get the start in this one.
The veteran lefty who made his career in Philadelphia has rejuvenated his career with Texas, posting a 3.32 ERA this season.
Hamels has been even more impressive on the road where he’s carrying a 2.08 ERA. Opposing batters are hitting him for just .197 when he pitches in their ballpark, so the road has been good to Hamels this year.
The Mariners are hanging tight in the AL West, but a sub-par record at home continues to plague them as the season wears on.
The M’s are 15-16 at Safeco Field, yet they’re seven games over .500 for the season.
If they can figure out their problems at home, there’s a great chance they’ll be the ones leading the division when the season is over.
Despite Seattle’s killer offense which ranks 4th in runs, 9th in hits and 10th in average, the team has struggled against left-handed pitchers. The Mariners are hitting just .250 against southpaws, which ranks 18th in the big leagues.
Wade Miley will bring his 5-2 record into this game to counter Hamels. He’s got a bloated 5.27 ERA this year, though his ERA is a whole run lower when he pitches at Safeco Field.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 7-3 in their last 10 games.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
With two quality lefties taking the mound, this one is sure to be a grinder. Miley has a surprisingly high ERA, but the Mariners find ways to win when he starts. Hamels has been lights out on the road and is holding road opponents to a sub-.200 batting average.
I like Texas in this spot, and the value is on the Rangers side.
