The Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Fenway Park.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Mariners have won nine of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Mitch Haniger leads the Mariners with 25 hits and 17 RBI while Ty France and Kyle Seager have combined for 44 hits and 31 RBI. Nick Margevicius gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Margevicius’ first career game against the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Red Sox have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Xander Bogaerts leads the Red Sox with 29 hits and 11 RBI while JD Martinez and Alex Verdugo have combined for 54 hits and 34 RBI. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 3-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 10-4 in their last 14 overall. The Red Sox are 4-9 in their last 13 during game 4 of a series and 13-6 in their last 19 overall. The over is 6-2 in Mariners last 8 road games. The over is 20-9 in Red Sox last 29 overall. The Mariners are 19-41 in the last 60 meetings in Boston and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
Nick Margevicius is not a pitcher I'm running to the window to back, as he hasn't been good through two starts and he's struggled overall through his first 110 MLB innings. Eduardo Rodriguez is off to a decent start this season and he's been much improved overall his last three years. The bottom line here is the Red Sox offense has been quiet this week and the Mariners continue to rack up the wins regardless of the disrespect they get from oddsmakers. I'll take a shot with the big plus money.
