Luis Castillo at times hasn’t gotten a ton of run support but he has been good. In his last start Castillo gave up two runs and he’s going to step up again here. The Orioles are averaging 4.95 runs per game but they are going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here. The Mariners are going to give some run support here, and Seattle will get the job done. Back the Mariners. The Mariners are going to score at least seven runs here, and this should be a comfortable one.
