Yu Darvish and Felix Hernandez take the hill in the first game of the series between Texas and Seattle.

The Texas Rangers play six of their next nine games against the Seattle Mariners, and that stretch will open up tonight with a stellar pitching matchup. Two of the American League's best pitchers, Yu Darvish and Felix Hernandez, will face each other in Seattle.

Darvish made his first career start against Seattle on April 9 and gave up five runs and eight hits in five-and-two-thirds innings pitched. Four of those runs came in the first inning, and the Rangers eventually won 11-5. Monday will mark the first time in his career that Darvish will face a team for the second time.

On the flip side, Hernandez has faced the Rangers 32 times in his career and sports a 10-16 record against Texas. Both Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler have three career home runs off of Hernandez.
