Seattle Mariners vs Texas Rangers prediction

Luis Castillo has to prove he can string together quality starts, and truthfully, I could put together scoreless innings against the Rockies. Andrew Heaney has been awful through 4 starts and has had issues with his control. I'm not running to the window to back either starting pitcher. Instead, I'm going to lean toward the over, as I expect some fireworks in this game. Two capable offenses in the Mariners and Rangers, and two pitchers who have seen better days. Give me the over in this game.
