The Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners meet Monday in game two of an MLB doubleheader at T-Mobile Park.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Athletics have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Athletics have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 37 hits and 16 RBI while Mark Canha and Matt Chapman have combined for 69 hits and 47 RBI. Mike Minor gets the ball, and he is 0-5 with a 6.35 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Minor is 4-1 with a 1.69 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Mariners have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Mariners have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Kyle Lewis leads the Mariners with 47 hits and 24 RBI while Kyle Seager and J.P. Crawford have combined for 76 hits and 48 RBI. The Seattle Mariners didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Mike Minor has allowed six runs and five hits in his last 4.1 innings since coming over from the Texas Rangers, and he's allowing a .253 batting average and .320 on base percentage on the season. In 61 at bats against current Mariners hitters, Mike Minor is allowing a .086 batting average with 18 strikeouts. The Oakland Athletics are a team I was very high on entering this season and even have a future bet on them for the World Series, but Minor hasn't been good this season, and the A's are running into a red hot Mariners club.
The Seattle Mariners didn't announce a starting pitcher and betting the second game of a doubleheader is always tricky, but I have to lean toward the Mariners because of their current form.
