Rangers-Mariners Preview

(AP) -- Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is looking at the bigger picture in deciding to bypass Felix Hernandez in this three-game series finale in favor of Erasmo Ramirez.

Ramirez will be back with the Mariners when he looks to end a 12-start winless drought Wednesday against the visiting Texas Rangers.

Seattle (72-59) owns a one-half game lead over Detroit for the AL's second wild-card spot and it is Hernandez's turn to pitch. However, with an off day Thursday, McClendon chose to give his ace two extra days of rest and hand the ball to Ramirez for his first start since Aug. 10.
