|Date & Time||Sunday June 9, 2019, 4:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Seattle Mariners +130 / Los Angeles Angels -152 -- Over/Under: 10
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Sunday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing nine of their last 12 games. The Mariners have scored 16 runs in they last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 2. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 69 hits and 48 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Mitch Haniger have combined for 109 hits and 75 RBI. Wade LeBlanc gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 5.70 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. LeBlanc is 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Angels have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won seven of their last eight 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 127 hits and 80 RBI. Trevor Cahill gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 7.18 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Cahill is 5-5 with a 3.61 ERA and 65 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-6 in their last 8 Sunday games, 1-6 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in LeBlanc's last 4 starts. The Angels are 3-8 in their last 11 home games, 1-4 in their last 5 games on grass and 1-4 in Cahill's last 5 starts. The Mariners are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles and 11-5 in the last 16 meetings. The over is 7-0-1 in Cahill's last 8 starts overall. The over is 6-1 in LeBlanc's last 7 starts overall.
I'm not thrilled about this pitching matchup at all, and my thing is usually to take the over when I don't like the form of either pitcher. To be fair, LeBlanc has been better lately, but the Mariners have lost his last five starts due to a lack of run support. Either way, I'm going to continue fading the Seattle Mariners, a team that piles up the losses left and right and doesn't look like an MLB team half the time. Last night was no different. Until the Mariners can put together a solid week or two, they're a team I'll continue to bet against.
