Just like that, thanks to the Astros finally beating the A's, the Rangers are back in a first place tie with Oakland in the AL West. The Rangers have also won both games started by Felix Hernandez this year. Year after year, they just keep besting The King.
Tomorrow at 3:10pm, Matt Harrison makes his 2014 debut as the Rangers go for a series win.
Player of the Game: Aaron Poreda is an important man this series since the Mariners like to load up on left-handed hitters. With Pedro Figueroa out, Poreda came into the middle innings in a tied game and got through two solid innings to pick up his first big league win since 2009.
