The Seattle Mariners could use a win here after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in five of their last six games. The Seattle Mariners have lost five of their last seven games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Robinson Cano leads the Mariners with 115 hits and 75 RBI while Nelson Cruz and Jean Segura have combined for 228 hits and 126 RBI. Erasmo Ramirez gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 5.10 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Ramirez is 4-2 with a 2.49 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 14-4 in their last 18 during game 3 of a series, 6-2 in Ramirezs last 8 road starts and 4-0 in Ramirezs last 4 starts vs. American League West. The Mariners are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 2-8 in Ramirezs last 10 home starts and 6-15 in Ramirezs last 21 starts. The over is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings in Seattle.
Both of these guys either seems to be really good or really bad, especially JC, who has allowed four or more earned runs in four of his last 10 starts. When you factor in the offensive firepower both of these clubs have and the way the Angels have been putting up crooked numbers consistently as of late, this game feels like an over. I expect to see double-digit runs in this contest.
