The Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres begin a two-game series Tuesday night.
The Seattle Mariners need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Mariners have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Mariners have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 85 hits and 46 RBI while Kyle Seager and Robinson Cano have combined for 62 RBI. The Seattle Mariners have lost six of their last nine road games. Mike Montgomery gets the nod, and he’s 2-2 with a 2.04 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Montgomery’s first career game against the Padres.

The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Padres have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Justin Upton leads San Diego with 77 hits and 46 RBI while Matt Kemp and Derek Norris have combined for 86 RBI. The San Diego Padres have lost five of their last eight home games. Ian Kennedy takes the hill, and he’s 4-6 with a 5.09 ERA and 65 strikeouts this season. This will be Kennedy’s second career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 20-8 in their last 28 games following an off day and 3-8 in their last 11 vs. National League West. The Padres are 5-1 in their last 6 games following an off day and 4-1 in Kennedys last 5 starts. The Mariners are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego.
Both teams are struggling to put runs on the board. So, instead of trying to pick a winner between these two teams, I like the under in this spot.
