The Mariners host the Texas Rangers in a three-game series. Will Safeco Field bring better luck against the first-place team?

The Seattle Mariners may have never wanted to leave Coors Field after completing the sweep of the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, but they will return home to Safeco Field on Monday night. The Texas Rangers are coming to town and the M's will be hoping that this series goes better for them than their trip to Texas earlier in the season.

The good news is that, thanks to their sweep and the Los Angeles Angels dropping two of three games to the San Diego Padres over the weekend, the Mariners are no longer in last place in the American League West. They'll try to stay out of the cellar during their series against the first-place Rangers.

TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers

The first game of the series on Monday will be a true matchup of aces, as Felix Hernandez takes on Yu Darvish. The Rangers' new star pitcher is trying for his seventh win, while King Felix is searching for his fourth. Monday's game begins at 7:10 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can find the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.

Hector Noesi gets the ball in the second game and attempts to improve on his best outing of the season against the Cleveland Indians, in which the bullpen cost him a win. Matt Harrison gets the start for the Rangers and goes for his fifth win of the year. Tuesday's game begins at 7:10 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can find the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.

Kevin Millwood is coming off of two spectacular starts, most recently a complete game shutout at Coors Field. He will go up against Neftali Feliz, who the Mariners have had a lot of trouble with historically. Wednesday's series finale begins at 12:40 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can find the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.
