The Seattle Mariners look for another win after winning three of their last four games. The Mariners have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Seattle Mariners are now 17-9 this season when scoring more than three runs. Jean Segura leads Seattle with 47 hits and 19 RBI while Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano have combined for 86 hits and 64 RBI. Ariel Miranda gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 4.79 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. This will be Miranda’s second career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 10-1 in Quintanas last 11 starts vs. American League West, 2-6 in Quintanas last 8 road starts and 1-5 in Quintanas last 6 starts with 4 days of rest. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 home games, 6-1 in Mirandas last 7 home starts and 10-4 in Mirandas last 14 starts. The White Sox are 38-17 in the last 55 meetings.
The White Sox are just unbackable in their current form and Quintana is a pitcher is usually better when at home. Meanwhile, the Mariners are starting to swing the bats well, and Miranda has an ERA under three at home and is coming off a solid five innings against the Blue Jays. With the way the White Sox are playing and the pitching advantage for the Mariners, I have to side with the home team and the cheap price.
