The Seattle Mariners look for another win after winning eight of their last 13 games. The Mariners have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Seattle Mariners offense has been consistent for a while, and they’ve won 13 of their last 15 games when scoring more than three runs. Robinson Cano leads Seattle with 52 hits, Nelson Cruz has 29 RBI and Kyle Seager has eight home runs. Nathan Karns takes the hill, and he’s 4-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Karns is 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in Gravemans last 8 road starts. The Mariners are 16-5 in their last 21 Tuesday games and 6-1 in Karns' last 7 starts. The Athletics are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle.
Graveman has been nothing but fade material this season, and he remains that way considering he's allowed 12 earned runs in his last three starts. A hot offensive team in the Mariners should eat this dude alive. Give me Seattle at home.
