Mariners fall to Astros

Seattle is coming off a pair of series losses at home to the Dodgers and the Astros this past week. The Mariners are now 72-56 overall and 34-28 on the road. Seattle is averaging just 4.16 runs per game this year while allowing 4.49 per contest.

Erasmo Ramirez is getting the start for Seattle tonight. He has started just four games this season and is 0-2 with a 5.49 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. Ramirez has pitched a total of 19.2 innings this year and has 12 strikeouts with five walks.

Diamondbacks on a roll

The Diamondbacks have won their last three and six of their last seven following a pair of wins over the Angels this week. Arizona is now 71-56 overall and 34-29 at home. The Diamondbacks are putting up 4.54 runs per game on offense while allowing 3.86 per contest.

Zack Godley is getting the start for the Diamondbacks today. He is making his 26th start of the season and holds a 13-6 record with a 4.44 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Godley has pitched 142.0 innings this year and has 150 strikeouts with 65 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners have lost nine of their last 12 interleague games and they are just 3-7 in Ramirez’ last 10 starts.

Arizona

The Diamondbacks have won seven of their last eight home games against a right-handed starter and they have won five of their last six interleague home games.

Prediction:

Ramirez has had two positive outings since his return in mid-August, but he isn’t getting deep into games. He has pitched just five innings in his two starts this month. Seattle hasn’t been getting the hitting in recent weeks, so they really need their pitching to rise up to get wins. I don’t see that happening at Arizona today. Though Godley hasn’t been great, he has a 3.33 ERA at home this year and I think he will be able to combat the Seattle lineup just fine.

 

The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -165
