The Seattle Mariners look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Mariners have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Seattle Mariners have won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 99 hits and 31 RBI while Robinson Cano and Ben Gamel have combined for 184 hits and 101 RBI. Felix Hernandez gets the ball, and he is 5-4 with a 3.88 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Hernandez is 8-4 with a 3.90 ERA and 110 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 5-1 in Pomeranzs last 6 road starts and 5-0 in Pomeranzs last 5 starts. The Mariners are 3-9 in their last 12 during game 2 of a series, 23-11 in Hernandezs last 34 starts with 4 days of rest and 1-5 in Hernandezs last 6 Tuesday starts. The Mariners are 4-1 in Hernandezs last 5 home starts vs. Red Sox.
Pomeranz has allowed two or less earned runs in eight of his last 10 starts, and Hernadez has given up two earned runs in his last 18 innings. The under is worth a look given the way both pitchers are dealing as of late. However, the value is with the Mariners and the plus money at home. It's not often you get King Felix at plus money, and these are games Seattle needs if its going to make a playoff push. I like the plus money here.
