Free Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Neither starter has pitched very well against the opponent, so early runs could be in abundance in this contest.
That favors Seattle, which has a much better bullpen they can depend upon in the long run. Neither team is particularly good offensively, but the Mariners have a little more pop.
Look for Seattle to win this contest late.
