Felix Hernandez gets the start for the Mariners on Saturday. He is making his 21st start of the season and comes into the game with an 8-8 record, a 5.14 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. King Felix has 94 strikeouts with 38 walks over 110.1 innings.
Angels back to a winning team

Jaime Barria gets the start for the Angels on Saturday. He is making his 15th start of the season tonight and comes in with a 5-7 record, a 3.80 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Barria has pitched a total of 71.0 innings this year and has 54 strikeouts with 22 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners have lost five straight road games and have lost five of Hernandez’ last seven starts.
The Angels have lost Barria’s last seven starts overall and his last four home starts. However, they have won 13 of their last 19 home games against a right-handed starter.
Hernandez hasn’t really ever gotten into consistent form this season and he has had a rough history with the Angels. Barria has been on the losing end a lot lately, but he still has respectable numbers and just hasn’t gotten a lot of run support. I think he gets the run support in this game and Los Angeles picks up another needed win at home.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -120
