Angels split first two in series
After losing 4-1 in the series opener on Tuesday, Los Angeles bounced back with a 7-4 victory on Wednesday night. Los Angeles is now 44-43 overall and 24-22 on the road. The Angels are putting up 4.44 runs per game this year while allowing 4.24 per contest.
Jaime Barria gets the start for the Angels this evening. He has started 11 games this season and has a 5-4 record with a 3.40 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Barria has pitched 55.2 innings this year and has 46 strikeouts with 16 walks.
Mariners’ win streak ends
The Mariners had their 8-game win streak come to an end on Wednesday in the 7-4 loss to the Angels. Seattle is now 55-32 overall and 29-15 at home. The Mariners are scoring just 4.38 runs per game while giving up 4.13 per contest.
Marco Gonzales gets the start for the Mariners this evening. He has an 8-5 record through 17 starts with a 3.77 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Gonzales has pitched a total of 100.1 innings this year and he has 87 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are just 4-12 in their last 16 road games and 1-10 in their last 11 road games against a left-handed starter.
Seattle has won six of Gonzales’ last eight starts. They have also won nine of their last 12 home games against a team with a winning road record.
The Mariners lost last night but are still playing well right now. They also have a lefty on the mound, which is a big advantage against the Angels. Los Angeles hasn’t done well against the left-handed arms and Gonzales has been a pretty solid left-handed pitcher in the spectrum of the league. I think Seattle bounces back tonight.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -125
