The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Mariners have won seven of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Nelson Cruz leads Seattle with 163 hits and 87 RBI while Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager have combined for 129 RBI. The Seattle Mariners have split their last six home games. Taijuan Walker takes the hill, and he’s 10-8 with a 4.70 ERA and 150 strikeouts this season. Walker is 1-1 with a 5.25 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. American League West and 7-19 in their last 26 road games. The Mariners are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. American League West and 13-4 in Walkers last 17 starts. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Seattle.
The Mariners have had a ton of success with Walker on the hill as of late, winning 13 of his last 17 starts. The Angels just aren't showing much away from home. I like the home team and the small chalk here.
