The Seattle Mariners and the Atlanta Braves meet in MLB action from Truist Park on Saturday. Let’s dive into the starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Seattle will start Logan Gilbert here and Gilbert is 1-2 with a 3.91 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Jesse Chavez will be the opener for Atlanta and is 0-0 with a 2.50 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Atlanta’s 6-2 win on Friday snapped Seattle’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


Seattle is 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 interleague road games. Atlanta is 60-17 in their last 77 games against a team with a losing record and 54-22 in their last 76 home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m rolling with the over here. I’m not trusting the Braves’ pitchers in a bullpen game, while Logan Gilbert hasn’t necessarily been all that sharp for the Mariners this season. I think this could easily be a game that sees some fireworks, so I’m going to back the over in this one.
