The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Mariners have lost four straight when scoring three or less runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 76 hits and 41 RBI while Kyle Seager and Logan Morrison have combined for 59 RBI. The Seattle Mariners have lost five of their last six home games. Felix Hernandez takes the hill, and he’s 9-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 82 strikeouts this season. Hernandez is 2-0 with a 2.57 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 7-2 in their last 9 road games and 19-7 in Bumgarners last 26 starts. The Mariners are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 29-11 in Hernandezs last 40 starts. The Giants are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Seattle.
We're getting Felix at home for the cheap price. When does that happen? Not very often. While the Giants have been solid on the road, I like the value of Seattle.
