Seattle took the opener of the series, 6-3, on Friday night. The Mariners are now 73-56 overall and 35-28 on the road. Seattle is averaging just 4.17 runs per game this year while allowing 4.48 per contest.

MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 1-4 in their last five interleague road games and 2-5 in their last seven Saturday games.
The Diamondbacks have won eight of their last nine games following a loss and 13 of their last 18 interleague home games.
Ray has given up multiple runs over his last four starts and eight of his last nine outings. Arizona is just 2-7 in his last nine starts as well. LeBlanc has struggled as well, giving up multiple runs over four of his last five starts. The difference for the two is Arizona has the better hitters. Ray is at home and should get plenty of run support. I like the Diamondbacks to find a way to win.
The Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -160
