The Los Angele Angels and the Seattle Mariners face off on Saturday in game two of their MLB series of AL West teams.

The Seattle Mariners got out to an early lead on Friday and then after letting it get away they won in extra innings. Nelson Cruz hit a home run and Ketel Marte and Adam Lind each had two hits as the Mariners scored five runs on 10 hits. Starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma allowed six hits and two runs while striking out three over 8.0 innings to not get a decision as Joel Peralta got the win and Steven Chisek earned his fourth save. For Saturday’s game the Mariners start Felix Hernandez who has allowed nine hits and two runs while striking out 20 over 18 innings for a 1-1 record and a 1.00 ERA.
Los Angeles is 2-7 in their last nine games, 1-4 in game two of a series, 0-4 against a right-handed starter, and 9-0 in Santiago’s last nine starts. Seattle is 8-2 in their last 10 road games, 5-1 following a win, 3-5 against the AL West, and 15-6 in Hernandez’s last 21 starts against a team with a winning record. Seattle is 30-61 in their last 91 games in Los Angeles.
The total in this one is set at 7.5 but I see runs being tough to come by so I like the under here.
