Try to forget that the Rangers won more games against Seattle in 2011 than they’ve ever won against a single opponent in a single season. Try to forget that they’re American League Champs two years running.
This is Spring Training. The Mariners are 7-3. The Rangers are 3-5. Anything can happen.
Seattle: CF Figgins, SS Ryan, RF Ichiro, DH Montero, LF Carp, C Olivo, 1B Liddi, 3B Catricala, 2B Kawasaki, RHP Beavan.
Texas: SS Elvis Andrus, 2B Greg Miclat, DH Josh Hamilton, 2B Adrian Beltre, 1B Michael Young, RF Nelson Cruz, LF David Murphy, C Yorvit Torrealba, CF Leonys Martin, LHP Matt Harrison.
Blake Beavan is one of several players still in the hunt for a rotation spot, according to Greg Johns. His competition includes Hisashi Iwakuma, Hector Noesi, and Erasmo Ramirez.
Today’s game will not be available on MLB.TV, your television, or your radio… but as always, it will be captured in vivid detail by Gameday.
