The Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels face off on Wednesday at Safeco Field as they continue their series of American League West teams.
The Seattle Mariners just couldn’t get the lead on Tuesday as they lost to the Angels. Nelson Cruz and Franklin Gutierrez each hit home runs and Ketel Marte had two hits as the Mariners scored three runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Felix Hernandez allowed five hits and four runs while striking out five over 7.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 17-9 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Mariners start Hisashi Iwakuma who has allowed 93 hits and 46 earned runs while striking out 83 over 102.1 innings for a 7-4 record and a 4.05 ERA.

The Los Angeles Angels took care of business on Tuesday beating the Mariners and moving to within 3.5 games of an American League Wildcard spot. Mike Trout and David Murphy each hit home runs and Carlos Perez had three hits as the Angels scored four runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Nicholas Tropeano allowed four hits and two runs while striking out five over 5.0 innings to get the win and raise his record to 2-2 for the season and Joe Smith earned his third save. For Wednesday’s game the Angels start Jered Weaver who has allowed 142 hits and 72 earned runs while striking out 77 over 137.2 innings for a 7-10 record and a 4.71 ERA.
Seattle is 9-5 in their last 14 games, 6-1 in game three of a series, and 6-1 in Iwakuma’s last seven home starts against a team with a winning record. Los Angele is 4-11 in their last 15 road games against a right-handed starter, 8-20 in their last 28 road games, and 1-5 in Weaver’s last six road starts. Seattle is 6-1 in Iwakuma’s last seven road starts against Los Angeles.
I am expecting the pitchers to not allow much so my free pick is under the total. I also have a pick on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
