Mariners eek out another

With a 1-0 win on Wednesday night, Seattle has won five straight games, with four coming by a single run. The Mariners are now 29-19 overall and 17-9 on the road. Seattle is putting up 4.48 runs per game this season while allowing 4.29 per contest.

Felix Hernandez gets the start for Seattle this afternoon. King Felix is 5-3 on the season with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 55.1 innings this year and has 49 strikeouts with 25 walks.

Athletics edged again

The Athletics had won four straight prior to entering this series, but they have lost the first two games against Seattle by a rune ach night. Oakland is now 25-24 overall and 11-11 at home. The Athletics are scoring 4.57 runs per game this season while allowing 4.61 per contest.

Josh Lucas gets his first start of the season today for Oakland. He has made two relief appearances this year and pitched a total of 6.2 innings. In that time, he has seven strikeouts with two walks while allowing just one earned run.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners have won five of Hernandez’ last six starts and they have also won 10 of their last 11 road games against a right-handed starter.

Oakland

The Athletics have lost six straight divisional games and five straight at home. They are also 2-6 in their last eight Game 3’s in a series.

Prediction:

Lucas hasn’t looked bad in his limited action on the mound this year, but I don’t see him stringing together a length start. Hernandez certainly hasn’t been good for Seattle, but the Mariners are feeling confident and finding ways to win right now. Even if King Felix is to struggle, I think his hitters and bullpen will pick him up.

 

The Pick: Seattle Mariners +110
