The Rockies are 34-81 in their last 115 road games and 5-14 in Kendricks last 19 starts. The Mariners are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 9-4 in Paxtons last 13 home starts. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Seattle.
It may be too late for the Mariners to get back in the wild card race, but they're certainly trying their best to makeup for a poor season. The Rockies continue to struggle and haven't had much success with Kendrick on the mound. Seattle is the pick here.
