Cole Hamels has seen some inconsistent outings over the past few weeks, but the Texas Rangers’ ace is still flawless on the road this season. Hamels is 3-0 with a 2.08 ERA on the road while his opponents have only managed to hit .198. The Rangers will look to take the series from the Seattle Mariners Sunday at Safeco Field.
– Shark bites
- The Rangers are 11-3 in their past 14 games.
- The UNDER is 5-2 in the Mariners’ past six games.
- Nelson Cruz has safely reached base in 23 of his past 25 games.
The Mariners will counter Hamels with Wade Miley – who has somehow equalled wins for the club. The M’s are 8-1 in Miley’s past nine starts despite the lefty allowing four earned runs or more in five of those outings.
Maybe a trip to the bench was what Price Fielder needed, as the big man has finally started to round into form at the plate over the past few games. Fielder is 5-for-13 with two home runs and four RBIs in the past three games. Considering he had three home runs in his first 56 games this season, that is a huge improvement.
