The Seattle Mariners look for another win after winning five of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Seattle Mariners offense has heated up lately, and they’ve won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Robinson Cano leads Seattle with 131 hits, Kyle Seager has 67 RBI and Nelson Cruz has 27 home runs. James Paxton takes the hill, and he’s 3-5 with a 3.93 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Paxton is 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games and 6-13 in Shoemakers last 19 starts. The Mariners are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Paxtons last 5 starts. The Angels are 7-4 in the last 11 meetings.
The Mariners are starting to find their groove and the offense is putting up numbers with some sort of consistency. Meanwhile, the Angels have cooled off big time. Seattle also needs this game in order to get back in the wild card race. Give me the home team and cheap price.
