The Seattle Mariners and the Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field. This will be the final installment in a three-game series between these teams this week. The Mariners posted a six-run win Friday, then in the Saturday matchup we had a suspended game after three innings. That one will be concluded prior to this series finale.

Seattle posted a nice offensive effort Friday, logging 14 team hits in a 9-3 victory. In the Saturday game, the Mariners’ Logan Gilbert got through 2.0 innings with one hit, no earned, no walks and three strikeouts before the rain had its way.
For the Sunday starter role, the Mariners are likely sending Marco Gonzales to the hill. Over his 47.2 innings this year, Gonzales has 47 hits, 27 earned runs, 10 homers allowed, 18 walks, 42 Ks and a 5.10 ERA.
Over on the White Sox’ side, they fell behind 8-1 at one point in the Friday game and couldn’t make up the steep gap. In the Saturday game, Lance Lynn notched 3.0 innings of scoreless ball with two walks and four strikeouts.

For Sunday’s finale start, the Sox are sending out Dallas Keuchel as the starter. In his 81.1 innings this year, Keuchel has 83 hits, 44 runs (36 earned), nine homers allowed, 26 walks, 49 Ks and a 3.98 ERA.
The Mariners are 4-0 in their last four Sunday games and 6-0 in their last six versus a lefty starter. Seattle is 3-7 in their last 10 in game three of a series and the over is 5-0 in their last five in game three of a series.
Meanwhile, the White Sox are 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games and 43-17 in their last 60 home games. Chicago is 20-8 in their last 28 home games versus a lefty starter and the under is 5-1 in their last six Sunday games.
PICK: I’m going to stick with the White Sox. Keuchel had a rough outing in his last appearance with six runs (three earned) off seven hits and three walks in just 2.2 innings. Prior to that however, Keuchel had three earned over the span of 19.0 innings across three starts. I like Gonzales to post a quality start here as well (he got one in his last outing versus the Rays) but I think the Sox probably still have the advantage if Keuchel is on.
