Mariner starter Felix Hernandez is off to a great start but struggled last season versus Texas getting crushed for 13 earned runs in 8 innings. The Rangers counter with Yu Darvish who like Hernandez has had a great start and arguably better with zero earned runs in 15 innings. Texas was only 1-2 in his starts versus Seattle last season but it wasn’t his pitching as Darvish recorded a quality start in all 3 games.
Take Texas -120
