Mariners in a funk
Seattle was one of the stronger teams in baseball a few weeks ago, but they have lost eight of their last 10 coming into today. They dropped three of four in New York earlier this week. Seattle is 20-20 on the season, 13-9 on the road and 26-12 with the over. Erik Swanson takes the mound for the Mariners tonight. He is 1-3 on the season with a 4.94 ERA.
On the season, the Mariners rank third in the league in scoring, putting up 5.55 runs per game. As a team they are hitting .247 while leading the league in home runs with 75. On the mound, Seattle has a 4.40 team ERA and a 1.35 WHIP, which ranks near the middle of the league. Both Dylan Moore and Dee Gordon are questionable to play tonight due to wrist injuries. Gordon is hitting .304 this season and has 19 RBI. Edwin Encarnacion is leading the team with 12 home runs and 26 RBI while Ryon Healy has 16 doubles, six home runs and 24 RBI.
Red Sox heating up
After a slow start to the season, Boston seems to be getting itself on track. The Red Sox have won eight of their last 10 following series wins at Chicago and Baltimore in the last week. The Red Sox are now 19-19 on the season, 8-7 at home and 21-16 with the over. Eduardo Rodriguez hits the mound for Boston tonight. He is 3-2 on the season with a 5.40 ERA.
The Red Sox are now up to 4.89 runs per game at the plate while the team is hitting .246. On the mound, Boston has a 4.53 team ERA and a 1.30 team WHIP. They lead the league in strikeouts with 373. Mitch Moreland has been leadind the team with 10 home runs and 24 RBI while J.D. Martinez is hitting .309 and has five home runs, eight doubles and 21 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are just 2-8 in their last 10 road games and 0-5 in their last five against a left-handed starter.
The Red Sox are 56-26 in their last 82 home games and 5-2 in their last seven home games against a right-handed starter.
Seattle took three of four from Boston at home already this year, but that was back at the end of March. Boston has really turned the corner as of late and Rodriguez has pitched better over the last couple weeks. His ERA was 12.38 to start April and is now down to 5.40. Erik Swanson had a great outing at Cleveland on Sunday, but he is facing a much tougher lineup today. These two teams are going in opposite directions right now and I will take Boston to continue its hot streak at home.
