The Seattle Mariners need to get back on the winning track to hold their position in the Wild Card race. The Mariners did exactly that in knocking off the Mets and a red hot Jacob deGrom with their pitching saving the day which prevented a three game skid. M’s starter Yovani Gallardo came up huge with a run scoring on five hits and a pair of free passes through 5.2 innings to improve to 5-7. Seattle totaled nine hits and walked once with Jarrod Dyson going 2-3 with a pair of RBI’s while Nelson Cruz recorded an RBI and scored. The Seattle Mariners are sending a surging James Paxton to the bump to oppose the visiting New York Mets on Sunday. Paxton has reeled off five straight wins capped off by a 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox where he struck out ten over seven frames.
The over is 6-2 in New York last 8 interleague games and New York are 7-3 in their last 10 overall while New York are 7-3 in their last 10 games on grass. The under is 7-2 in Seattle last 9 Sunday games and Seattle are 5-14 in their last 19 home games while the over is 21-8-3 in Seattle last 32 interleague games. New York are 4-1 in the last 7 meetings in Seattle.
The price is high on Seattle to me but Paxton probably demands this number with his hot run…
