The Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres meet Wednesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Seattle Mariners look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Mariners have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Mariners have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Kyle Lewis leads the Mariners with 40 hits and 19 RBI while Kyle Seager and Austin Nola have combined for 59 hits and 31 RBI. Taijuan Walker gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.00 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. Walker is 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a win after winning seven of their last eight games. The Padres have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 10 games. The Padres have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 37 hits and 29 RBI while Manny Machado and Trent Grisham have combined for 63 hits and 36 RBI. Dinelson Lamet gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 1.89 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. This will be Lamet’s second career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 5-2 in their last 7 Wednesday games, 26-58 in their last 84 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 interleague games. The Padres are 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite, 6-0 in their last 6 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The over is 10-4-1 in Mariners last 15 road games. The over is 4-1 in Padres last 5 Wednesday games. The Mariners are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings.
Taijuan Walker has allowed seven earned runs and 13 hits in his last 16.2 innings, while Dinelson Lamet has allowed five earned runs and eight hits in his last 23.1 innings. Walker is a pitcher who I rarely back given his constant struggles, and this probably isn't a good spot given how good Lamet has been this season and with how hot the San Diego Padres have been over the last week. However, we're getting nearly two times our money with a Mariners team that's finding offensive success and has won four straight. There's some value here based on how hot the M's are right now. I'll take it.
