It’s an American League West showdown on Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field. The Texas Rangers are in town to take on the Seattle Mariners.

The Mariners won the first matchup of the season on Friday 2-1 behind a great performance from Felix Hernandez.

Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers had a terrible start to their season getting swept by the Cleveland Indians but they seem to be playing much better baseball since that point.

They won their last two series over the Athletics and their last one over the Angels.

They have been getting much better pitching as of late.

Even in their last game against the Mariners on Friday night they only gave up two runs, but they couldn’t seem to get an offense going and that is what led to the defeat.

Seattle Mariners

On the other side of this matchup is the Seattle Mariners who have gotten off to a terrible start, and need to turn it around quickly if they want to have the type of season they were expecting.

A lot of people had high hopes for this season for the Mariners.

The Mariners come into this game having lost two of three and the two losses were because they couldn’t get any pitching. In the two games, they gave up ten and seven runs respectively.

The Rangers are a team that can put up a lot of runs in a hurry so they are going need to get a good start out of Iwakuma.
