Nelson Cruz smashed two home runs in Friday's defeat for the Mariners as he went 4-for-5 with the pair of long balls and seven RBIs. Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. Mitch Haniger went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run and an RBI. Denard Span finished 2-for-5 with a double, two runs and an RBI. Andrew Romine was 3-for-4 with two runs.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners are 10-2 in their last 12 Saturday games. The over is 15-5-1 in the last 21 Seattle games on Saturday. 

Boston

The Red Spx are 13-3 in their last 16 Saturday games. Boston is 11-4 in its last 15 home games.

Prediction: 

 

These two teams brought the fireworks last night with the Red Sox getting the last laugh with a big finish. Rodriguez is the much better pitcher here and Seattle is struggling on this road trip, losing five in a row. Take Boston on the runline here as it has the firepower to win by multiple runs even with one less at-bat at home.
