First Pitch: 7:05pm PDT


Lofton CF Ichiro CF Young SS Vidro DH Teixeira 1B Guillen RF Sosa DH Ibanez LF Catalanotto LF Sexson 1B Byrd RF Johjima C Kinsler 2B Beltre 3B Laird C Betancourt SS Vazquez 3B Lopez 2B ---------- ----------

Padilla (2-7, 5.77)         Baek (2-2, 4.60)

Cha Baek has four career starts against Texas, and he's pitched so well that, according to Jim Street, "Seattle is 11-3 against the Rangers in games Baek has started." Buhh. Anyhoo, all you need to know is that Texas is a half game away from being the worst team in baseball, they don't have a single starter with an ERA under 5.4, and Ian Kinsler has fallen so far back down to Earth that Ron Washington is opening a mine to try and dig him back out. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning this series.
