|Date & Time||Saturday June 8, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Seattle Mariners / Los Angeles Angels -- Over/Under:
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Saturday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing 11 of their last 15 games. The Mariners have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Seattle Mariners have split their last eight 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. Yusei Kikuchi gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.43 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Kikuchi is 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels could use a win after losing five of 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 13 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won six of their last seven 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. The Los Angeles Angels didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The Mariners are 5-16 in their last 21 vs. American League West, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in their last 6 Saturday games. The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games, 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 1-8 in their last 9 home games vs. a left-handed starter. The Mariners are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 8-2-2 in Angels last 12 overall. The over is 5-1 in Kikuchi's last 6 road starts.
The Seattle Mariners have been able to find a win here and there this week and the offense is showing signs of life, but they're still a team that's still won just 11 games since April 21, and only three teams have burned more money than them this season. And while Kikuchi has had his positive moments his rookie season, he's allowed 20 hits and 10 earned runs in his last 6.2 innings. The Angels are also hitting .472 against Kikuchi with two homers in 36 at bats. I'll side with the Los Angeles Angels to get a bounce back victory.
