The Seattle Mariners and the Detroit Tigers face off on Wednesday at Safeco Field for game three of their MLB series.
The Seattle Mariners needed extra innings on Tuesday but they got the win over the Tigers. Austin Jackson, Franklin Gutierrez, and Robinson Cano each hit home runs as the Mariners scored seven runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker allowed six hits and five runs while striking out three over 6.0 innings to not get the decision as Charlie Furbush got the win to level his record at 1-1. For game three of the series the Mariners start J.A. Happ who has allowed 100 hits and 40 earned runs while striking out 72 over 91.2 innings for a 4-5 record and a 3.93 ERA.

The Detroit Tigers fought back late to tie the game in Seattle on Tuesday but they lost in extra innings. Yoenis Cespedes, Alex Avila, Nick Castellanos, and Marc Krauss each hit home runs as the Tigers scored six runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Kyle Ryan allowed six hits and five runs while striking out two over 2.2 innings to not get a decision as Ian Krol took the loss to fall to 1-2 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Tigers start Anibal Sanchez who has allowed 98 hits and 58 earned runs while striking out 100 over 112.1 innings for a 7-7 record and a 4.65 ERA.
Seattle is 7-13 in their last 20 home games, 6-16 as a favorite, and 1-4 in Happ’s last five starts against a team with a winning record. Detroit is 1-6 as an underdog, 1-9 against the AL West, and 14-6 in Sanchez’s last 20 road starts. Detroit is 2-5 in the last meetings of these two.
I don’t like this game at all but I will go with the Mariners as the home team with the Tigers on the cross country trip.
