The Texas Rangers Start a Two Game Series Against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday
The Texas Rangers look to get back on track after losing four of their last five games when they host the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night. They are coming off losing their last two series against the Houston Astros and the Toronto Blue Jays last week as they have fallen seven games back of Oakland in the division.
Texas will send Colby Lewis, who is 3-2 with a 4.99 ERA in six starts, to the mound Tuesday night opposite the Mariner’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma who is 2-0 on the year with a 1.59 ERA. In his previous two starts, he tossed eight shutout innings, though in his most recent outing he didn’t pick up a win against the Rays because closer Fernando Rodney blew the save in the ninth. This season, Iwakuma is holding opponents to a .179 batting average.
First pitch for tonight’s game is set for 7:05pm from Globe Life Park in Arlington and can be seen on FOX Sports SW.
