GAME: Rangers (53-35, 1st, AL West, +5.0 GA) at Mariners (37-52, 4th, AL West, – 16.5 GB). GAME #: 90. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 13th (series tied 6-6). WHEN: Sunday, 1:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Matt Harrison (Texas, 11-4, 3.10) vs. RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle, 1-1, 4.84). STREAKS: Mariners W 1; Rangers L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

Safeco Field opened for business 13 years ago Sunday — July 15, 1999 — and since then the Mariners have posted a 569-493 record in the ballpark. To achieve win No. 570, the Mariners will have to solve one of the toughest pitchers they have encountered, Texas All-Star left-hander Matt Harrison (11-4, 3.310).

In the series finale, Harrison seeksto extend his winning streak against Seattle to eight games. For his career, Harrison is 8-1 with a 2.51 ERA against the Mariners. He earned victories over Seattle in back-to-back starts in May, posting a 1.80 ERA with 12 strikeouts in the two games.

“They (Mariners) are a team I’ve had success with in the past,” said Harrison, who will become the first pitcher in the AL to 12 if he wins Sunday. “There is a lot of familiarity. I know what I want to do so it’s a matter of executing my pitches.”

Nasty stat: No Mariners batter with more than six at-bats against Harrison is hitting above .300 against him. Seattle hitters are batting just .193 against the Rangers left-hander, who will oppose RHP Hisashi Iwakuma. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (1-1, 4.84 ERA, 1.38 WHIP)

Hisashi Iwakuma

The 31-year-old Iwakuma, in his first major league season, will be making his second start and first against the Rangers. Iwakuma made a 3.0-inning relief appearance against Texas May 30 in Seattle’s 21-8 victory and earned a save. Iwakuma is coming off a no-decision against Baltimore July 2.

A native of Tokyo, the 6-3, 190-pound Iwakuma signed with the Mariners as a free agent Jan. 5, following an 11-year career in his native country. Iwakuma pitched for Osaka Kintetsu from 2001-04, and for Rakuten from 2005-11. His record was 107-69, 3.25 ERA.

In 2004, Iwakuma started out 12-0 en route to a 15-2 record and 3.45 ERA. He had his only 20-win season in 2008 when he went 21-4, 1.87 ERA in 28 starts. Iwakuma won Japan’s equivalent of the Cy Young award.

In 2008, Iwakuma was named the Pacific League Most Valuable Player and also named an NPB All-Star.

Iwakuma played in the 2004 Athens Olympics and in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, where he won a gold medal.
