|Date & Time||Tuesday July 23, 2019, 10:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Texas Rangers / Seattle Mariners -- Over/Under:
The Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners meet Tuesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Texas Rangers need a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Rangers have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games. The Texas Rangers have lost eight straight games when scoring three or less runs. Elvis Andrus leads the Rangers with 106 hits and 49 RBI while Shin-Soo Choo and Nomar Mazara have combined for 187 hits and 92 RBI. Pedro Payano gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and zero strikeouts this season. This will be Payano’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. The Seattle Mariners haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 2. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 107 hits and 65 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Mallex Smith have combined for 160 hits and 63 RBI. The Seattle Mariners didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Rangers are 8-20 in their last 28 Tuesday games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 0-8 in their last 8 overall. The Mariners are 8-20 in their last 28 during game 2 of a series, 6-20 in their last 26 Tuesday games and 7-19 in their last 26 games following a win. The Rangers are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings and the over is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Mariners last 5 home games. The under is 4-1 in Rangers last 5 road games.
The Seattle Mariners haven't won back-to-back games since June 25-26, but the Texas Rangers are watching their season get away from the rather quickly during this eight-game losing streak and are a team I'm not trying to get behind at all. This game has to be the Mariners by default, as backing the Rangers in any shape or form isn't an option in their current form. M's or pass.
