The Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels meet in an AL West division matchup in MLB action from Angel Stadium on Wednesday.

The Seattle Mariners will look to build off of their 8-2 win over the Angels from Tuesday’s matchup. Going into Tuesday’s game, Ty France leads the Mariners with 112 hits along with 14 home runs and 57 RBIs while Adam Frazier has 102 hits and 17 doubles. Eugenio Suarez also has 21 doubles with 19 homers of his own and 61 RBIs while J.P. Crawford has 103 hits, 5 homers and 20 doubles as well as a .261 batting average. Julio Rodriguez has also chipped in 19 doubles, 18 home runs and 59 RBIs for Seattle on the year. George Kirby will get the start for Seattle here and is 4-3 with a 3.39 ERA and 86 strikeouts this season.

The Los Angeles Angels will hope to bounce back after their defeat at the hands of the Mariners on Tuesday. Entering Tuesday’s matchup, Mike Trout has 76 hits, 17 doubles, 51 RBIs and 24 home runs while Jared Walsh has 43 RBIs and Shohei Ohtani has 106 hits while adding 17 doubles, 26 home runs and 68 RBIs. Taylor Ward also has a .266 batting average as well this season. The Angels did not have a starting pitcher announced at the time that this article was posted.

Seattle is 4-2 in their last 6 games overall and 18-7 in their last 25 road games while the over is 6-3 in their last 9 games overall. Los Angeles is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 4-10 in their last 14 home games.

I get the case to be made for the Angels in some spots, but not here. The Angels just find new ways to lose baseball games on a day to day basis, and while it would be nice to know who the Halos are trotting out here, I’m not sure it matters against this Seattle lineup that just keeps on finding ways to win baseball games. George Kirby’s stepped it up in recent starts and has fared well against the Angels this season, so give me the Mariners in this one.
