MLB Game Preview: Texas Rangers vs. Seattle Mariners - Date: 9/19/2017 Mariners, Rangers still hoping for postseason berth 1h ago• 2 min read SEATTLE -- The Seattle Mariners return Tuesday to Safeco Field, which will not represent the familiar surroundings of home as much as their own private version of the Last Chance Saloon.The Mariners (74-76) come back for their final homestand of the regular season after getting swept in three games by the Houston Astros. It was a result Seattle could ill afford and one that has the Mariners four games behind the Minnesota Twins in the chase for the second American League wild card."We are running out of time," Seattle manager Scott Servais said Sunday. "These games are important. I assume we will bounce back. ... Free Soccer Picks. Texas comes in and then Cleveland. We're going to keep playing hard. A lot of things can still happen."

However, the Rangers are in a similar predicament in the playoff chase, 4 1/2 games behind the Twins.The next three games might be setting up as an elimination series for the two postseason hopefuls. Actually, considering that both teams probably need help from somewhere above them in the standings, anything but a sweep could deliver a nasty blow to their playoff aspirations."It's do or die. We can't afford to lose any more games," Texas slugger Adrian Beltre told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Sunday. "We don't think about winning every game, but we need to start playing better to give ourselves a chance." Since returning from the disabled list after recovering from a strained hamstring, Beltre has struggled, hitting .200 (3-for-15) in five games.

"He knows his body. And one thing he's not is selfish. If he felt he could not contribute, he would be the first to come out of the lineup. He believes he can help." The Mariners will send a hot pitcher to the mound on Tuesday. Right-hander Mike Leake has won all three starts, posting a 2.41 ERA, since Seattle acquired him from the St. Louis Cardinals on Aug. 30.
