|Date & Time||Sunday April 21, 2019, 4:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Seattle Mariners -105 / Los Angeles Angels -115 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Sunday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Mariners have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Seattle Mariners are 15-4 this season when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 30 hits and 25 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Tim Beckham have combined for 49 hits and 30 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Leake is 4-3 with a 3.57 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels could use a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Angels have allowed 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in their last eight games. The Los Angeles Angels are 2-11 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 23 hits and 10 RBI while David Fletcher and Jonathan Lucroy have combined for 38 hits and 11 RBI. Jaime Barria gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 5.87 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Barria is 1-3 with a 4.10 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 10-3 in their last 13 during game 4 of a series, 11-5 in Leakes last 16 road starts and 4-1 in Leakes last 5 starts. The Angels are 12-5 in their last 17 home games, 6-13 in their last 19 Sunday games and 0-6 in their last 6 overall. The Mariners are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 18-7-1 in Angels last 26 overall. The over is 4-1 in Leakes last 5 starts overall.
The Los Angeles Angels simply can't catch a break during this losing stretch and their pitching staff continues to get rocked. That's not what you want to see when going up against a Seattle Mariners squad that's done nothing but tear the cover off the ball all season long. And while Leake isn't the greatest pitcher in the world, the Mariners seem to have a ton of success with him on the mound. Not only have the Mariners won 11 of Leake's last 16 road starts, but they've won eight of his last 13 games as a road underdog. I have to ride with the Marines and the cheap price.
