The Rangers have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Nick Solak leads the Rangers with 38 hits and 15 RBI while Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Todd Frazier have combined for 63 hits and 13 RBI. Jordan Lyles gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 8.59 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Lyles is 1-3 with a 6.62 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.

The Mariners have won eight of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Kyle Lewis leads the Mariners with 44 hits and 22 RBI while Kyle Seager J.P.

The Rangers are 19-41 in their last 60 road games, 11-27 in their last 38 games as an underdog and 3-15 in their last 18 overall. The Mariners are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Rangers last 6 overall.

Jordan Lyles has allowed 28 earned runs and 38 hits in his last 27.1 innings, while Justin Dunn has allowed 11 earned runs and 17 hits in his last 24 innings. Lyles has been horrible this season if we're being honest, and the Texas Rangers aren't scoring runs to back the rough pitching. The Mariners have quietly won nine of their last 12 games and Dunn has allowed two hits and zero runs in his last 12 innings. I'll gladly lay the reasonable price with the Mariners.
