Mariners Vs. Rangers, Game Preview: M's Eye Series Sweep On Sunday

After taking the first two games of their series with the Texas Rangers, the Seattle Mariners are looking to complete the sweep of the first place Texas Rangers on Sunday at Safeco Field.

The Mariners will send Jason Vargas (14-10, 3.92) to the mound, who has won just one of his last five starts while posting a 6.35 ERA during that span. Vargas has been better at home lately, owning a 5-4 record with a 2.62 ERA at Safeco, including a 3-1 mark with a 2.06 ERA in the last six played there.

Texas will counter with Ryan Dempster (6-2, 4.70 ERA), who was roughed up in his last outing. He allowed five runs, six hits and three walks in just 3.1 innings of work on Tuesday en route to a 11-3 loss to the Angels. Dempster is facing Seattle for only the second time, with his last coming on July 22, 2010, a 2-0 loss to the Mariners.

First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT with coverage on Fox Sports Northwest and ESPN 710 AM.

Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Seattle Sufficiently Messes With Texas In 6-3 Win

The Seattle Mariners opened a three-game series against the first-place Texas Rangers on Friday night. The Mariners surely got plenty of glee from handing a 6-3 loss to their American League West rivals to start the series.

The Mariners struck first in the bottom of the second inning, as Casper Wells doubled home Justin Smoak. Seattle made it 2-0 in the third inning when Franklin Gutierrez scored on a wild pitch.

The Rangers knotted it up at 2-2 in the top of the third with a two-run RBI single from David Murphy, but the M's got both of those runs back in the bottom of the frame. Carlos Triunfel hit an RBI double and came in to score on a fielding error that pushed the Seattle lead to 4-2.

David Murphy hit a two-out home run in the top of the sixth to cut the Seattle lead to one run. Miguel Olivo was finally able to give the Mariners some breathing room as he hit his 12th home run of the season in the eighth; a two-run shot that made it 6-3 in Seattle's favor.

Hisashi Iwakuma turned in another quality start, allowing three runs on eight hits and no walks in seven innings of work, while striking out four.
