Seattle wins fourth straight
Seattle claimed its fourth straight victory on Tuesday night with a 3-2 victory at Oakland. The Mariners are now 28-19 overall and 16-9 on the road. Seattle is putting up 4.55 runs per game this season while allowing 4.38 per contest.
Marco Gonzales gets the start for the Mariners on Wednesday night. He is making his 10th start of the year and is 3-3 on the season with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Gonzales has pitched a total of 46.1 innings this season and has 43 strikeouts with nine walks.
Athletics win streak snapped
Oakland saw its four-game win streak come to an end on Tuesday in the 3-2 loss. The Athletics still have won six of their last eight. Oakland is now 25-23 overall and 11-10 at home. The Athletics are scoring 4.55 runs per game this season while allowing 4.38 per contest as well.
Daniel Gossett makes just his third start of the season tonight for the Athletics. His last outing came back on April 6. Gossett has an 11.05 ERA with a 1.91 WHIP over his two starts as he has allowed nine earned runs over 7.1 innings of work. He has three strikeouts and three walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have won 10 of their last 14 road games and six of their last seven against a right-handed starting pitcher.
The Athletics have lost 11 of their last 16 games against a winning team. They have also lost Gossett’s last four starts and four of his last five starts at home.
Both teams have been playing pretty well as of late, but Oakland has managed to beat up on some poor teams. Seattle has shown an ability to beat good and bad despite the loss of Robinson Cano. The Mariners also have the much more reliable starting pitcher of the two. I think Gossett will struggle to make anything positive happen on the mound.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners +110
