The Seattle Mariners could also use a win that would snap a five-game losing streak. The Mariners have allowed 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 14 games. The Seattle Mariners have lost eight of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Robinson Cano leads the Mariners with 120 hits and 75 RBI while Nelson Cruz and Jean Segura have combined for 235 hits and 129 RBI. Andrew Albers gets the ball, and he 0-0 with a 5.82 ERA and 16 strikeouts last season. This will be Albers' first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 14-30 in their last 44 road games, 3-10 in their last 13 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Mileys last 5 starts. The Mariners are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 8-17 in their last 25 Tuesday games and 0-5 in their last 5 home games. The Orioles are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Seattle and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Miley has allowed just four earned runs in his last 17 innings, while Albers hasn't pitched since September of last year. I always shy away from pitchers making their first start in forever, as you never know what to expect, how much rust there's going to be, etc. Miley has been solid as of late and now has a Baltimore offense to back him up that's been red hot. I have to give the Baltimore Orioles a considerble edge here.
