BEDARD TRIES TO SLOW DOWN SIZZLING RANGERS
Wed, 04 May 2011 01:52 PM EDT

SEATTLE MARINERS (2-1)

at TEXAS RANGERS (3-0)

First pitch: Monday, 8:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Texas -155, Seattle +145, Total: 9

The Texas Rangers look to continue their hot hitting as they open a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners on Monday evening, trying to start 4-0 for the first time since 1996. In its season-opening, three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox, Texas scored 26 runs and ripped 21 extra-base hits, including 11 home runs. Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler each homered in all three games, the first set of teammates in major-league history to accomplish that feat. Scores.

The Mariners will attempt to halt the Rangers bats by sending out left-hander Erik Bedard, who is making his first start since July 25, 2009. Bedard has had two shoulder surgeries since then, and is hoping that a strong spring (3-0, 1.13 ERA) has him ready to return to form. His last start in Texas, back in May 2008, was not a good one (2 IP, 7 H, 6 ER). However, his previous start at Rangers Ballpark was one of the best of his career, as Bedard twirled a two-hit shutout, with no walks and 15 strikeouts. Seattle was a miserable 26-55 (.321) on the road last season, but opened up the 2010 campaign by taking two of three games in Oakland.

Entering his third season in the big leagues, left-hander Derek Holland (3-4, 4.08 ERA) gets the start in hopes of establishing himself in the Rangers rotation. Holland has bounced between the rotation and the bullpen the last two years, but earned a spot in the rotation this spring. At home in 2010, Holland was strong, posting a 2-0 mark with a 2.32 ERA. Baseball scores.

Texas won all three games against the Red Sox by 4+ runs, continuing its strong play at home from a year ago (51-30 on the season). The last time the Rangers started 3-0 was back in 2009, when they immediately went on a five-game losing streak. Last season in games four through six, Seattle traveled to Texas and lost two of three games. For the entire year, the Rangers were 12-7 against the Mariners, including 6-3 in Texas. Look for Texas to continue its hot hitting and winning ways with another win on Monday.

These two FoxSheets trends also support Texas as the pick to win.

RON WASHINGTON is 20-5 (80.0%, +18.1 Units) against the money line vs. AL teams allowing 3.7 or less runs/game on the season as the manager of TEXAS. The average score was TEXAS 6.0, OPPONENT 4.6 – (Rating = 4*). Baseball odds.

SEATTLE is 19-51 (27.1%, -29.7 Units) against the money line after 2 or more consecutive road games over the last 2 seasons. The average score was SEATTLE 3.0, OPPONENT 4.8 – (Rating = 2*).
