AL West MLB brings us the Seattle Mariners visiting the Los Angeles Angels on Friday.
The Seattle Mariners have had a rocky several weeks but did take two of three from visiting San Francisco following Wednesday’s 3-2 victory. Seattle starter Mike Leake gave up both runs over 6.1 frames for a no decision while three relievers put up zeros with Alex Colome getting the win.

The Mariners did their damage on four hits and three bases on balls with Ryon Healy smacking his 21st long ball while Jean Segura drove n Dee Gordon and Guillermo Heredia.
Wade LeBlanc gets Friday’s starting assignment from the Mariners. LeBlanc defeated the White Sox 3-1 last time out with a run scoring over 7.1 frames where he recorded ten strikeouts.
The Los Angeles Angels rode a late offensive burst to a 12-8 win versus the visiting White Sox on Thursday that gave the team consecutive victories. Los Angeles starter Nick Tropeano was charged with five runs on five solo homers over 6.1 innings to get the win while Blake Parker served up a two run bomb in the 9th.
The Angels amassed 16 hits and five BB with Kole Calhoun going 2-5 with a homer and two runs while Ian Kinsler had three hits including a homer, two RBI’s and three runs. Francisco Arcia gave the LAA a pair of hits with a homer and four RBI’s while Justin Upton and Andrelton Simmons combined for six hits hits, five RBI’s and four runs.
The Angels send left hander Andrew Heaney to the bump for the series opener versus Seattle. Heaney comes in off of a 14-5 rout of the Astros where he gave up a single run on four hits and two BB in six innings.
Seattle are 7-3 in their last 10 Friday games and are 18-4 in LeBlanc’s last 22 starts on grass and are 18-5 in LeBlanc’s last 23 starts. LA Angels are 6-2 in their last 8 Friday games and under is 15-6-1 in LA Angels last 22 overall and under is 15-6-1 in LA Angels last 22 on grass. Over is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings.
I don’t know if I’d bet this but I think a case can be made for Heaney who has been the more consistent hurler for the past several outings…
