Five runs is a bonanza these days for the Texas Rangers, so manager Ron Washington opted to leave well enough mostly alone Wednesday against Felix Hernandez and Seattle. The only changes from the Rangers’ lineup in Tuesday’s 5-0 win is Josh Wilson at second base over Donnie Murphy and Robinson Chirinos at catcher over J.P. Arencibia
Hernandez is 5-9 with a 4.45 ERA in 39 career starts vs. the Rangers. The Mariners will counter with eight left-handed hitters (three of them switch-hitters) against Yu Darvish, who is 3-3 with a 4.78 ERA in seven career starts against Seattle.
Mariners lineup vs. RHP Yu Darvish: Abraham Almonte, cf; Brad Miller, ss; Robinson Cano, 2b; Kyle Seager, 3b; Michael Saunders, rf; Nick Franklin, dh; Justin Smoak, 1b; Dustin Ackley, lf; Mike Zunino, c.
Rangers lineup vs. RHP Felix Heernandez: Shin-Soo Choo, lf; Elvis Andrus, ss; Alex Rios, rf; Prince Fielder, 1b; Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3b; Mitch Moreland, dh; Josh Wilson, 2b; Leonys Martin, cf; Robinson Chirinos, c.
