The San Francisco Giants and the Seattle Mariners meet in MLB action from T-Mobile Park on Saturday night.
The San Francisco Giants will look to build on their 6-3 win over the Mariners from Friday night. Evan Longoria led the Giants with three RBIs, going 2 for 3 with a home run while Donovan Solano went 3 for 5 with a double and two RBIs. Buster Posey added a solo home run to cap off the scoring for San Francisco in the winning effort. Wilmer Flores and Mauricio Dubon each had a base hit as well to finish off the offense for the Giants in the victory. Johnny Cueto gave up three runs on six hits while striking out seven over 5.2 innings of work, not factoring in the decision. Wandy Peralta picked up the win in relief to improve to 1-0 while Jake McGee closed out the 9th for the save. Logan Webb will start this one and was 3-4 with a 5.47 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. This will be Webb’s second career start against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners will look to rebound from the loss to the Giants last time out. Evan White led the Mariners with two RBIS while Luis Torrens had a double and an RBI to finish off Seattle’s scoring as a team in the loss. Ty France and Jake Fraley each had a double while J.P Crawford and Mitch Haniger each had a base hit as well to finish off the offense for Seattle as the Mariners had just six hits as a team in the losing effort. Yusei Kikuchi allowed three runs on six hits with 10 strikeouts over six innings of work, not factoring in the decision. Drew Steckenrider gave up three runs in less than an inning of relief, taking the loss to fall to 0-1. Chris Flexen will start here, making his first MLB start since 2019 after pitching in Korea last season. This will be Flexen’s first career start against San Francisco.
San Francisco is 13-6 in their last 19 games as a favorite and 17-35 in their last 52 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 2-0-2 in their last 4 games as a favorite. Seattle is 5-0 in their last 5 Saturday games and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a right-handed starter while the over is 10-3 in their last 13 interleague games. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
We needed late inning heroics to get us over the number on Friday night, but to be honest, I think those heroics run out for you total fanatics on Saturday. I think we get back to lower scoring games here and I could see this one being a pitchers’ duel on Saturday. Give me the under here.
