Texas Rangers (10-15) at Seattle Mariners (9-19)

Saturday, August 22nd, 9:10 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Jordan Lyles (1-2, 7.52 ERA) vs LHP Justus Sheffield (1-2, 4.12 ERA)

Game Preview

The Mariners have had a few productive hitters while the Rangers seem to have an edge in the pitching department, so this one could really go either way. Speaking of pitching, the Rangers will send veteran Jordan Lyles and his 7.52 ERA to the mound, while the Mariners will counter with Justus Sheffield, who has been outstanding in his last two outings – going 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA and 10 hits in 12 innings against the Colorado Rockies and the Houston Astros. Sheffield has a 4.12 ERA this season, but he is on the right track.
