The Mariners host the Rangers for a three-game series. Can the M's put one last Safeco hurt on Texas?

The Seattle Mariners failed in their bid to play the spoiler against the Baltimore Orioles, getting swept at home in three games. After a much-needed off day, the M's will have a chance to put a crimp -- however small -- into the late-season plans of the first-place Texas Rangers.

While the Mariners may be officially eliminated from postseason contention, they still have a chance to put an inconvenient hurt on their American League West rivals.
