For the Wednesday game, the Mariners will be bringing out RHP Mike Leake. In his 167.0 innings and 9-12 record this year, Leake has a 4.10 ERA with 115 Ks and 36 BBs.
Seattle has some solid bats this year. Robinson Cano came into Tuesday with 145 hits, 70 runs, 21 homers and 87 RBI while Jean Segura had 141 hits, 73 runs and 39 RBI in that time. Segura had an RBI on Tuesday; Cano had a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run.
Over on the Rangers’ side, they’re going with LHP Martin Perez on Wednesday. In his 162.2 innings and 12-10 record this season, Perez has a 4.81 ERA with 102 Ks and 53 BBs.
Texas has some key hitters as well. Elvis Andrus entered Tuesday with 175 hits, 94 runs, 20 homers and 83 RBI while Shin-Soo Choo managed 129 hits, 88 runs, 18 homers and 70 RBI in that time. Choo put up two hits and a run on Tuesday; Andrus went 0-for-3.
The Mariners are 4-2 in the last six road games versus a left-handed starter and 1-6 in their last seven road games. Seattle is also 0-6 in their last six road games versus a team with a winning home record and the under is 5-2 in the Mariners’ last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Rangers are 6-2 in their last nine home games versus a team with a losing record, and 3-5 in their last eight versus a team with a losing record. The over is 5-2-1 in Texas’ last eight home games, and the over is 7-2-2 in Texas’ last 11 overall.
Leake has been solid in his two outings for the Mariners, allowing four earned on 14 hits over 13 innings for a 2-0 mark. As for Perez, he has three quality starts in his last four outings, and the other one was a two-earned effort over 5.2 innings against the Yankees. I like both pitchers here, but with the run Perez has been on I’m leaning toward the Rangers. The under probably isn’t a bad play, either.
