The Seattle Mariners and the Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Monday at Safeco Field in game one of their interleague MLB series.
The Seattle Mariners have been a major disappointment this season and their post-season hopes are fading quickly. The Mariners are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 22-28 at home, and they are 9.5 games back in the American League West. As a team the Mariners are hitting .237 with Nelson Cruz hitting .311, Kyle Seager hitting .276, and Robinson Cano hitting .262. The Mariners pitching staff has an ERA of 3.88 with the starters at 3.92 and the bullpen at 3.82. For game one against the D-Backs the Mariners start Mike Montgomery who has been crushed in his last three starts and for the season has allowed 55 hits and 23 earned runs while striking out 45 over 63.2 innings for a 4-4 record and a 3.25 ERA.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have won their last two games but they have their work cut out for them if they hope to make the post-season. The Diamondbacks are 4-6 in their last 10 games, 20-24 on the road, and they are 8.5 games back in the National League West. As a team the Diamondbacks are hitting .261 with Paul Goldschmidt hitting .345, A.J. Pollock hitting .306, and Ender Inciarte hitting .300. The Diamondbacks pitching staff has an ERA of 4.11 with the starters at 4.51 and the bullpen at 3.43. For game one in Seattle the Diamondbacks start Robbie Ray who has allowed 52 hits and 18 earned runs while striking out 50 over 59.2 innings for a 3-5 record and a 2.72 ERA.
Seattle is 4-1 in their last five games as a favorite, 1-4 in their last five Monday games, and 1-4 in Montgomery’s last five home starts. Arizona is 5-2 in game one of a series, 4-9 in their last 13 games, and 1-5 in Ray’s last six starts. Arizona is 2-8 in their last 10 games against Seattle.
The total in this one is set at 7.5 but I have this one staying under that number. My stronger play is on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
