The Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at Safeco Field.
The Boston Red Sox could use a win here that would snap a four-game losing streak. The Red Sox have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Boston Red Sox have lost six of their last seven games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Mookie Betts leads the Red Sox with 112 hits and 61 RBI while Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia have combined for 204 hits and 97 RBI. Chris Sale gets the ball, and he is 12-4 with a 2.48 ERA and 200 strikeouts this season. Sale is 4-1 with a 2.34 ERA and 74 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.

The Seattle Mariners look for another win to get a game above a .500 record. The Mariners have scored 10 runs in this series and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Seattle Mariners have won eight of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 100 hits and 32 RBI while Robinson Cano and Ben Gamel have combined for 197 hits and 101 RBI. Andrew Moore gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 5.70 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Moore’s first career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 5-2 in Sales last 7 road starts and 11-4 in Sales last 15 starts. The Mariners are 7-3 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series, 10-3 in their last 13 Wednesday games and 4-12 in their last 16 home games. The under is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Seattle.
The Mariners are making the most of this playoff push and have to feel good after making a comeback Tuesday night and winning in extra innings. However, Sale has been lights out all season long and is allowing a batting average of just .208 on the road. Moore has given up a combined 10 earned runs in his last nine innings and has allowed 14 runs in 27 innings at home overall. While I considered the Mariners and the huge plus money, the Red Sox have a considerable edge on the mound.
