The Oakland Athletics look for a victory after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Athletics have have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Oakland Athletics have have won 11 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jed Lowrie leads the A’s with 153 hits and 67 RBI while Ryon Healy and Khris Davis have combined for 284 hits and 183 RBI. Kendall Graveman gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 4.17 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Graveman is 1-3 with a 4.85 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 4-9 in their last 13 road games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Ramirezs last 5 starts. The Athletics are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series, 7-2 in Gravemans last 9 starts with 4 days of rest and 4-1 in Gravemans last 5 home starts. The Athletics are 0-6 in Gravemans last 6 starts vs. Mariners, 0-4 in Gravemans last 4 home starts vs. Mariners and the Mariners are 0-6 in Ramirezs last 6 starts vs. Athletics.
It's been a while since Oakland has lost three games in a row, and Ramriez numbers against the A's have been awful, as he's also allowing a .329 batting average against Oakland in 72 at bats. Graveman has allowed just two runs in his last 15 innings and has won four of his last five home games. I'll side with Oakland in this spot given the pitching advantage.
