The pitching matchup tonight features James Paxton (12-5, 3.03 ERA) on the mound for the Mariners to face Daniel Mengden (2-1, 3.30) of the Athletics. Paxton has been struggling lately, allowing multiple runs in his last four runs, including five over his last 5 innings. He has 142 strikeouts on the season with 37 walks and a 1.13 WHIP. Mengden has started five games this year, allowing 11 earned runs over 30 innings. He has 18 strikeouts with five walks and a 1.07 WHIP.

Seattle picked up a 7-1 win over the Athletics. The Mariners have won seven straight meetings with Oakland now. Seattle has improved to 76-81 overall and 36-40 on the road while Oakland is 72-84 overall and 45-34 at home.

The Mariners got a little taste of King Felix again on Monday as Felix Hernandez pitched six innings of 1-run ball to earn his sixth victory of the season. Daniel Gossett took the loss, his 10th of the season, allowing seven runs over 4.1 innings. Mitch Haniger and Mike Zunino each drove in three runs to lead Seattle and both also homered in the win. Haniger had two home runs, giving him 16 for the season. Oakland’s lone run came on a solo home run from Marcus Semien.

Bet on Mariners vs. Athletics

Seattle has had Oakland’s number for a while, however I think the Athletics will buck the trend tonight. Paxton has struggled as of late and not been good against Oakland this season. In two starts, Paxton has allowed seven runs over 11.1 innings. Mengden hasn’t allowed a run over his last 16 innings and he faces a lineup that isn’t all that special.
