Starting pitcher Tom Milone allowed 10 hits and three runs while striking out seven over 5.0 innings to fall to 0-1 for the season. For Saturday’s game Oakland starts Sonny Gray who has looked sharp in his first two outings.

Seattle is 6-17 against a right-handed starter, 4-1 I game two of a series, and 1-6 in Ramirez’s last seven starts. Oakland is 4-2 in their last six games, 5-3 in their last eight road games, and 6-2 in Gray’s last eight starts. Seattle is 0-4 in Ramirez’s last four starts against Oakland.
The total is set at seven and that appears to be aggressively low and my free pick is the over.
