Seattle Mariners vs Texas Rangers. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. The Rangers kept up their strong defensive performance even with Seager out for a while early in the season and Jacob deGrom out for more than a month with an injury. Gray was outstanding, winning all four starts while only allowing three earned runs. Castillo will try to keep Seattle in the game because Robbie Ray won’t pitch for the Mariners this season. However, you must consider how much more lethal the Rangers’ lineup is than the Mariners’. That’s enough to give Texas the advantage in the series’ first game, which should be a close match. The Texas Rangers will triumph, and the score will be 7-2.
