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.
