Rays drop third straight
Tampa dropped its third straight game on Saturday in a 3-1 loss. Tampa has been held to three runs or less in all three defeats. The Rays are 28-29 overall and 17-16 on the road. Tampa is averaging 4.16 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.21 on the mound.
Blake Snell will take the mound for the Rays today. He is 7-3 through 12 starts and has a 2.56 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP. Snell has pitched a total of 70.1 innings this season and has 76 strikeouts with 23 walks.

Seattle has now won three straight and seven of its last nine following Saturday’s 3-1 victory. The Mariners are 36-22 on the season and 19-12 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.36 runs per game while allowing 4.09 per contest.
Felix Hernandez will be on the mound for the Mariners on Sunday. He is just 5-4 on the season with a 5.83 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. King Felix has pitched a total of 66.1 innings this year and has 55 strikeouts with 28 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Rays have won nine of their last 13 road games and they have won seven straight when Snell starts against AL West opponents.
The Mariners have won 12 of their last 15 overall and 10 of their last 12 at home. They are also just 8-2 in their last 10 against a team with a losing record.
Hernandez hasn’t been good this season. He has allowed at least four runs in five straight starts. His strikeout numbers are quite weak as well. Snell has been really strong on the mound and earning wins. I think he will out-pitch King Felix and lead the Rays to a win despite the rough weekend.
The Pick: Tampa Bay Rays -105
