The Seattle Mariners look for consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Mariners have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 19 games. The Seattle Mariners offense has been hit or miss recently, but they’ve won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Robinson Cano leads Seattle with 116 hits, Kyle Seager has 63 RBI and Nelson Cruz has 23 home runs. Wade Miley takes the hill, and he’s 6-6 with a 5.44 ERA and 65 strikeouts this season. Miley is 1-2 with a 6.52 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 5-14 in their last 19 during game 2 of a series and 3-8 in Quintanas last 11 starts. The Mariners are 20-8 in their last 28 Tuesday games and 0-4 in Mileys last 4 starts. The White Sox are 35-16 in the last 51 meetings.
The Mariners have been hit or miss pretty much all season and the White Sox are too talented to continue losing at this rate. Quintana has also been consistent this season and gives Chicago chances to win. I'll side with the road team to snap its losing skid.
