The Line: Seattle Mariners +160 / Los Angeles Angels -179 -- Over/Under: 9
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Friday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Mariners have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Seattle Mariners have lost six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 66 hits and 45 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Edwin Encarnacion have combined for 108 hits and 74 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 5-6 with a 4.89 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 4-1 with a 4.26 ERA and 52 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Angels have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won 10 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 68 hits and 23 RBI while Tommy La Stella and Mike Trout have combined for 121 hits and 77 RBI. Andrew Heaney gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 4.09 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Heaney is 1-3 with a 3.86 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 0-7 in Gonzales' last 7 starts. The Angels are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League West, 8-2 in Heaney's last 10 home starts and 12-5 in Heaney's last 17 starts. The Mariners are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles, 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and 7-2 in Gonzales' last 9 starts vs. Angels. The over is 4-1 in Heaney's last 5 home starts. The under is 3-1-1 in Gonzales' last 5 road starts.
The Seattle Mariners continue to come up short at an impressive rate, and now they head into this series with a thin bullpen after having to play 14 innings in a loss yesterday to the Houston Astros. Gonzales has also allowed 18 earned runs in his last 8.2 innings and was taken behind the woodshed when he last faced these Angels. Heaney has just 11 innings under his belt this season, but his strikeout numbers are up and and he'll come more consistent with more reps. Either way, backing the Mariners isn't an option in their current form, especially with Gonzales facing these Angels again. Give me the Angels.
