GAME PREVIEW: Rangers Seek Series Win Over Mariners

Texas continues its six-game, two-city road trip with the final game of a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.

The Texas Rangers will look to win the series when they face the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night at T-Mobile Park.

The Rangers (66-88) are playing their final eight games of the season — one more in Seattle, three in Los Angeles against the Angels this weekend and then home to Globe Life Field for four games with Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees next week.

The Rangers are coming off a 3-1 loss to the Mariners on Wednesday night, one night after beating the Mariners, 5-0. Rangers third baseman Josh Jung has every Rangers RBI in the series, and his performance on Tuesday was among the best in Rangers history.

The Mariners (84-70) are trying to clinch an American League Wild Card berth. The Mariners’ magic number to clinch the Wild Card berth is three — a combination of Mariners wins and Baltimore Orioles losses.

The Rangers won’t have to watch the Mariners celebrate making the postseason, as they did when Cleveland clinched the AL Central on Sunday. But the Rangers can help delay what appears to be inevitable.

Here is a preview of today game.
