The Mariners have been a horrible team all season. Playing on the road against winning teams has not been too kind either, as they have put together just a 14-26 mark in their 40 games. The Rangers have kept in the wildcard race due to their ability to score runs, especially at home against RHP. The Rangers are 45-30 against RHP, but not getting it done against the lefties at 11-22. The Rangers have scored an amazing 186 runs in their last 25 games at home - good for 7.4 runs a game. To put that in perspective, the Mariners have produced eight or more runs in just 12 games all season. This presents a tough spot for them here because the Texas average is a total they have surpassed in just 12 of 107 games or 11% of the time. The Rangers take this one.
