The Line: Los Angeles Dodgers -126 / Seattle Mariners +116 --- Over/Under: 7
The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Seattle Mariners face off on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium for game three of their interleague MLB series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have won both of the first two games of this series and both times scored the go ahead run in their final at bat. On Tuesday Andre Ethier and Alex Guerrero each hit home runs and Adrian Gonzalez was among those with two hits as the Dodgers scored six runs on 12 hits. Starting pitcher David Huff allowed seven hits and four runs while striking out two lasting just 4.0 innings to not factor in the decision as Yimi Garcia got the win to go to 2-0 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Dodgers start Brett Anderson who allowed five hits and three runs while striking out four over 6.0 innings to not get a decision in his first start of the year at Arizona.
The Seattle Mariners were once again unable to hold onto a late lead as they fell to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz each hit home runs and Rickie Weeks and Kyle Seager each had two hits as the Mariners scored five runs on 10 hits. Starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma allowed six hits and four runs while striking out five over 5.0 innings to not get a decision as Fernando Rodney blew the save and took the loss to fall to 1-1 for the year. For Wednesday’s game the Mariners start Taijuan Walker who allowed nine hits and nine runs in just 3.1 innings taking the loss at Oakland in his first start this year.
Los Angele sis 5-0 against the AL West, 19-7 in their last 26 home games, and 45-21 as a favorite. Seattle is 2-5 in their last seven games, 3-8 in their last 11 road games, and 1-4 in Walker’s last five starts. Seattle is 0-4 in their last four meetings with Los Angeles.
Walker was just so bad in his last start I just can’t touch him until he shows me better so the play is the Dodgers.
