Rangers end skid
Texas put an end to its lengthy 8-game losing streak on Tuesday with a 7-2 win at Seattle. The Rangers are 51-50 on the season, 20-29 on the road and 50-49 with the under. Texas has Mike Minor making the start today. He is 8-5 on the season with a 2.86 ERA.
The Rangers jumped out quickly on Seattle on Tuesday, putting up six runs over the first three innings of play. The team finished with four home runs as Rougned Odor homered twice and drove in three runs while scoring three times. Nomar Mazara and Shin-Soo Choo both had solo home runs as well. Texas used a relief starter on Tuesday, but Pedro Payano got the win in relief, throwing five innings and allowing just one run with seven strikeouts.
Mariners drop another
Seattle has lost nine of its last 11 games thanks to a 7-2 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday night. The Mariners are 41-63 on the season, 21-32 at home and 65-35 with the over. Seattle has Mike Leake making the start this afternoon. He is 8-8 on the season with a 4.27 ERA.
Tommy Milone got touched up early for Seattle, allowing six runs over six innings on nine hits. He fell to 1-5 on the season with the loss. At the plate, the Mariners scattered seven hits for their two runs. J.P. Crawford and Omar Narvaez each drove in a single run for Seattle.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rangers are just 2-8 in their last 10 road games, but 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win.
The Mariners are just 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 2-6 in their last eight games following a loss.
Texas avoided falling below .500 on Tuesday to end the surprising skid for the Rangers, who had been playing pretty good ball for most of the season. Now they look to establish a win streak behind one of their top pitchers. Minor has been pretty strong this year, but Texas has lost his last three outings. Still, he has had two solid starts against Seattle this year already. Leake is coming off a complete-game shutout of the Angels last week, but has struggled with the Rangers this year. In two starts against Texas, he has a 10.80 ERA, allowing 16 runs, 12 earned, over 10 innings. Texas is definitely the better team and that should show itself today as the Rangers have the edge on the mound and at the plate.
MLB Prediction: Texas Rangers -150
