Tuesday’s MLB matchup between the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners takes place at T-Mobile Park.
The Rangers had a 43-51 overall record going into Monday’s game, and they had dropped two out of their three games last weekend against the Oakland Athletics. The Rangers aren’t a horrible club; they’ve just dropped too many games in a row that were close, which has damaged their record. The Rangers’ offence ranks 10th in baseball in terms of runs scored per game, averaging 4.57. A tremendous season for Adolis Garcia has seen him blast 18 home runs and total 59 RBIs.
The Seattle Mariners were 51-45 going into their matchup with the Rangers on Monday. The Mariners have relied heavily on their pitching all season, and they are now giving up the 4th-fewest runs in baseball (3.8 runs per game). They’ve struggled on offensively, scoring just 4.09 runs per game on average. 52 runs were scored and 16 home runs were hit by Julio Rodriguez.
Dane Dunning, who is now pitching for the Rangers, has a 1-6 record and a 4.42 earned run average. 2.1 innings and six hits and four runs were allowed by Dunning in his most recent start against the Minnesota Twins.
George Kirby, a pitcher for the Mariners with a 2-3 record and a 3.78 ERA, will start the game. 4.1 innings and 10 hits and two runs were allowed by Kirby in his most recent start against the Toronto Blue Jays.
In their last four games on Tuesday, the Mariners have gone 4-0. In Dunning’s previous 6 road starts against a team with a winning record, the under is 6-0. In Kirby’s previous 4 starts as a favourite of -110 to -150, the over is 4-0.
The Mariners will continue their winning streak here after winning their previous four games on Tuesday. Dunning will have problems in this game after giving up four runs in his previous outing. Expect Kirby to get off to another great start, with the Mariners providing plenty run support.
