The Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants begin a four-game series Monday night.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mariners have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Mariners have lost eight of their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 76 hits and 40 RBI while Kyle Seager and Logan Morrison have combined for 57 RBI. The Seattle Mariners have won six of their last nine road games. Taijuan Walker gets the nod, and he’s 3-6 with a 5.40 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. This will be Walker’s first career game against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Giants have scored two runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Giants have won four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Nori Aoki leads San Francisco with 78 hits and 17 RBI while Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford have combined for 76 RBI. The San Francisco Giants have lost eight straight home games. Tim Hudson takes the hill, and he’s 4-5 with a 4.60 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Hudson is 13-6 with a 3.17 ERA and 97 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 4-9 in Walkers last 13 starts. The Giants are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 1-5 in Hudsons last 6 starts with 4 days of rest. The Mariners are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
The Giants have to snap their eight-home game losing streak eventually, and have done a great job this season of taking the first game of a series. The Mariners aren't exactly lighting it up, and I like San Fran to get in the win column here.
