The Texas Rangers will conclude their American League West series battle on the road at Safeco Field on Wednesday evening when they take on the lowly Seattle Mariners.

The top two teams in the AL West finish up a series down in the Lone Star State. The Oakland A’s play the final game of a three-game series with the Houston Astros Wednesday afternoon. In the opening game of the series, Houston cruised to a one-sided 11-1 victory on Monday night to draw first blood. The pitching matchup in the middle game of the series Tuesday night saw Mike Fiers take the mound for the A’s against Houston’s Wade Miley. 

The Milwaukee Brewers will host the Cincinnati Reds as the NL Central foes wrap up a three-game series Wednesday afternoon from Miller Park. The Reds will give the starting call to 25-year old right-hander Lucas Sims, and the Brewers will counter with 31-year old right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. The season series is tied 7-7 heading into Tuesday’s action.

The Boston Red Sox are on the road as they finish up a three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday afternoon.

St. Louis won three of four over the weekend on the road over Cincinnati as they took the finale 3-1 Sunday afternoon.

The pitching matchup for Monday’s series opener saw Daniel Ponce de Leon take the mound for the Cardinals against the Pirates’ Trevor Williams.

After nearly providing an elusive first in Padres franchise history, rookie Chris Paddack looks to extend his string of solid starts Tuesday night when San Diego opens a three-game series versus the New York Mets.

The 23-year-old Paddack (6-4, 2.70 ERA) clearly benefitted from a 10-day “break” last month in which the Padres (47-52) assigned him to Lake Elsinore to make sure they did not overwork him.
