|Date & Time||Wednesday July 11, 2018, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Angels -124 / Seattle Mariners +114 --- Over/Under: 9
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Wednesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners could use a bounce back win after losing four of their last six games. The Mariners have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Seattle Mariners have lost four of their last five games when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 116 hits and 47 RBI while Dee Gordon and Mitch Haniger have combined for 186 hits and 86 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 9-5 with a 3.64 ERA and 94 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 1-0 with a 3.91 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Angels have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won six of their last seven games when scoring more than one run. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 100 hits and 50 RBI while Andrelton Simmons and Albert Pujols have combined for 178 hits and 90 RBI. Jaime Barria gets the ball, and he is 5-5 with a 3.39 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. Barria is 0-2 with a 3.48 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 3-7 in their last 10 Wednesday games, 5-0 in Gonzales' last 5 starts vs. American League West and 7-2 in Gonzales' last 9 starts. The Angels are 9-4 in their last 13 home games, 5-16 in their last 21 games vs. a left-handed starter and 0-5 in Barrias last 5 starts. The Mariners are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and the over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Gonzales has been hit hard on the road where he has an allowed batting average of .275, but he has allowed just two runs in his last 15 innings overall. Barria has had his moments this season, but the Angels haven't won with him on the mound since June 1. Not to mention we're getting the much better team with plus money, something you shouldn't turn down often if you're looking to make a long term profit. Give me the Seattle Mariners due to the price.
