|Date & Time||Monday May 27, 2019, 9:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Texas Rangers -120 / Seattle Mariners +100 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners meet Monday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Texas Rangers look for a win after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Rangers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Texas Rangers have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Elvis Andrus leads the Rangers with 54 hits and 26 RBI while Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Gallo have combined for 96 hits and 57 RBI. Lance Lynn gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 4.67 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Lynn is 3-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Mariners have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 2. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 57 hits and 41 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Dee Gordon have combined for 93 hits and 47 RBI. Tommy Milone gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Milone is 3-5 with a 4.45 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Rangers.
The Rangers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League West, 8-17 in their last 25 Monday games and 4-1 in Lynn's last 5 starts. The Mariners are 12-5 in their last 17 Monday games, 5-13 in their last 18 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series. The Rangers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Seattle and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 34-16-2 in Mariners last 52 overall. The over is 11-5-1 in Rangers last 17 road games.
Lynn has been better on the road than at home, and he's allowed 10 hits and three runs through 14 innings against the Mariners this season. Milone has just five innings under his belt this season, and while it was a respectable start against these Rangers, it's not enough of a sample size to get excited about. Milone has been pretty rough over the years, and that's with limited starts the last three or four seasons. When you factor in Lynn's success against the M's this season and the Seattle Mariners piling up losses left and right, I have to side with the Rangers and the cheap price. I'll continue fading the Mariners until they start looking like a big league team.
