The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Mariners have won four straight when scoring more than three runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 164 hits and 87 RBI while Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager have combined for 131 RBI.

Hernandez is 14-13 with a 3.27 ERA and 290 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 3-12 in their last 15 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League West. The Mariners are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 37-18 in Hernandezs last 55 starts. The Mariners are 9-1 in Hernandezs last 10 starts vs. Angels.
Hernandez has absolutely owned the Angels lately, and one of the top pitchers in the game isn't going to help LA break out of its funk. Felix at home against a struggling Angels squad has to be the pick here.
