Loe (9-5, 3.39)             Hernandez (4-4, 2.63)

Kameron Loe is what you get when you take Felix Hernandez's statistical profile and remove the strikeouts. He's a groundball pitcher with good control, exactly the kind of guy the Rangers need to stockpile, and he's easily the best bet going forward of any current member of the Texas staff. But he's no Felix. The King's looking to make up for that ugly start he had 11 days ago against the same ballclub. I'm guessing he does it.

LET'S GO MARINERS!
