The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels square off Sunday afternoon for a rubber game.
The Seattle Mariners look to get back to a .500 record with a nice road victory. The Mariners issue all season has been a lack of run support, as they’ve scored three or less runs in five of their last seven games and three or less runs in 11 of their 17 games overall. Meanwhile, the Seattle Mariners are 6-0 this year when topping three runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 18 hits, Robinson Cano has 14 RBI and Leonys Martin has two home runs. Wade Miley gets the nod, and he’s 0-2 with an 8.04 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Miley is 1-0 with a 0.60 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Angels continue to be a disappointment despite the amount of talent on their roster, scoring three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Los Angeles Angels produced four runs in their Saturday win but have lost six of their last eight when getting under that key run total. Kole Calhoun leads the Angels with 20 hits, Albert Pujols has 10 RBI and Mike Trout has three home runs. Matt Shoemaker takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Shoemaker is 3-2 with a 2.88 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 15-7 in their last 22 during game 3 of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 vs. American League West. The Angels are 3-7 in their last 10 Sunday games and 2-10 in Shoemakers last 12 home starts. The Mariners are 20-43 in the last 63 meetings in Los Angeles.
We have two teams that are really stinking it up considering the amount of talent on both rosters. So, this game could go either way depending on which team decides to show up. However, the Angels should have the advantage at home and have the firepower to hurt Miley who has already allowed 14 runs in 15.2 innings.
