Interleague MLB action comes to Safeco Field Friday where the Seattle Mariners host the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers need a prolonged winning streak and are hoping Wednesday’s 4-3, 12 inning win versus San Francisco is the start. Los Angeles starter Hyun-Jin Ryu did not allow a run over six frames but did not get a win when Caleb Ferguson served up a three run bomb n the 9th.

The Dodger racked up 14 hits and four bases on balls with Manny Machado going 3-5 with an RBI and a run while Matt Kemp had two hits and drove in a run followed by Joc Pederson who delivered a pinch hit sacrifice fly.
The LA Dodgers send Walker Buehler to the mound to oppose the Mariners for the first time. Buehler did not get a decision last time out in a 3-2 win at Colorado where he tossed seven scoreless frames.
The Seattle Mariners look to continue their hot streak after a 2-0, 12 inning victory at Oakland on Wednesday gave the team wins in six of eight. Seattle starter Mike Leake tossed eight shutout innings with five relievers putting up zeros.
The Mariners offense consisted of ten hits and a base on balls with Dee Gordon slamming a two run bomb in he 12th.
The Mariners send Wade LeBlanc to the bump to face the Dodgers for the first time since 2012. LeBlanc comes off of a 3-2 win at Houston with two runs scoring over five frames.
Under is 8-1 in LA Dodgers last 9 road games and under is 8-1 in LA Dodgers last 9 Friday games and under is 10-2 in LA Dodgers last 12 interleague games. Under is 9-2 in Seattle last 11 games following a win and Seattle are 15-1 in LeBlanc’s last 16 home starts and under is 7-2-1 in LeBlanc’s last 10 home starts.
The Mariners seem to have turned things around over the past few weeks and hopefully that trend continues Friday…
