Rangers bounce back
After losing the series opener, 2-1, the Rangers came back on Tuesday with a 9-5 victory over the Mariners. Texas is now 23-34 overall with an 12-15 record on the road. The Rangers are putting up 4.26 runs per game this season while allowing 5.30 per contest.

Seattle hits a speedbump
The Mariners suffered just their second loss in 10 games on Tuesday night in the 9-5 loss. Seattle is now 33-21 overall with a 16-11 record at home. The Mariners are scoring 4.33 runs per game this season while allowing 4.17 per contest.
James Paxton gets the start for the Mariners tonight. Paxton is 4-1 through 11 starts with a 3.10 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP. Paxton has pitched a total of 69.2 innings this season and has 90 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rangers are just 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 7-19 in their last 26 games following a win. They have also lost Moore’s last four divisional starts.
The Mariners have won seven of their last eight at home and nine of their last 11 overall. Seattle also has won seven of Paxton’s last nine starts.
The Mariners should be able to bounce back tonight. Paxton has been very strong on the mound and he allows limited baserunners. Moore has been a disaster this season for Texas. He is allowing two baserunners per game while allowing nearly 8 runs per nine innings. Seattle should be able to win, and win big.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -1.5 (-135)
