The Seattle Mariners have been a disappointment this season but they put it together on Monday beatig the Giants. Kyle Seager hit a home run, Logan Morrison had three hits, and Austin Jackson and Robinson Cano each had two hits as the Mariners scored five runs on 12 hits. Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker allowed seven hits and a run while striking out six over 7.0 innings to get the win and go to 4-6 for the season. For Tuesday’s game the Mariners start J.A. Happ who has allowed 73 hits and 28 earned runs while striking out 52 over 67.2 innings for a 3-2 record and a 3.72 ERA.
San Francisco is 13-3 in game two of a series, 41-18 in their last 59 home games, and 4-1 in Lincecum’s last five starts against a team with a losing record. Seattle is 8-3 in their last 11 road games, 6-11 in their last 17 games, and 1-5 following a win. Seattle is 10-2 in their last 12 games against San Francisco.
This is a tough call because Lincecum pitches well at home and Happ is a better home pitcher than on the road but the Giants are playing poorly enough that I have to take the Mariners here.
