The Seattle Mariners and the San Francisco Giants face off on Thursday in Seattle as they close out their interleague MLB series.
The Seattle Mariners have had a tough go of it this season but they got a gem on the mound and rode it to a win on Wednesday. Robinson Cano, Austin Jackson, and Mark Trumbo each had hits as the mariners scored two runs on four hits. Starting pitcher Felix Hernandez allowed four hits and struck out five over 8.0 scoreless innings to go to 10-3 for the season and Carson Smith earned his third save. For Thursday’s game the Mariners start Mike Montgomery who has allowed 15 hits and four runs while striking out 11 over 19 innings for a 1-1 record and a 1.89 ERA.

The San Francisco Giants couldn’t figure out Felix Hernandez as they lost in Seattle on Wednesday. Matt Duffy had two hits and Joe Panik and Buster Posey each had hits as the Giants didn’t score a run on four hits. Starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner allowed four hits and two runs while striking out nine over 8.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 7-4 for the season. For Thursday’s game the Giants start Ryan Vogelsong who has allowed 67 hits and 36 earned runs while striking out 49 over 67.1 innings for a 4-5 record and a 4.81 ERA.
Seattle is 4-1 after scoring two or less runs in their previous game, 7-19 in game four of a series, and 1-6 following a win. San Francisco is 6-3 as a road underdog, 12-6 in their last 18 road games, and 3-8 in Vogelsong’s last 18 road starts. San Francisco is 1-5 in the last six meetings of these two.
The Giants run hot and cold and right now they are cold and while I don’t love this game it is a lean to the Mariners.
