MLB Game Preview: Rangers @ Mariners
On paper, tonight’s contest between Texas and Seattle looks like a huge mismatch. The Rangers hold the second best team batting average in majors at .272 (Red Sox (.278) while the Mariners sit dead last with a .224 team average. Texas also sits second in home runs with 123 compared to just 55 for the Mariners who sit in the 26 spot.
A key note for tonight’s contest is the Rangers record on the road. Texas has not faired well away from the Ball Park in Arlington as they have just 20 wins in 43 road contests. Seattle sits two games above .500 with a 25-23 home record but they have lost four of their last six at Safeco Field.
