The Line: Los Angeles Angels / Seattle Mariners --- Over/Under:
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels meet Friday in MLB action at Angels Stadium.
The Seattle Mariners look for another victory after losing five of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 13 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 165 hits and 60 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Dee Gordon have combined for 290 hits and 115 RBI. The Seattle Mariners didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a victory after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Angels have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Angels have lost five of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Andrelton Simmons leads the Angels with 150 hits and 71 RBI while Mike Trout and Justin Upton have combined for 265 hits and 147 RBI. Matt Shoemaker gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 3.45 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Shoemaker is 4-4 with a 4.33 ERA and 56 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 Friday games, 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series. The Angels are 11-4 in their last 15 Friday games, 10-1 in Shoemakers last 11 home starts and 20-8 in Shoemakers last 28 starts. The Mariners are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles, the Angels are 4-0 in Shoemakers last 4 starts vs. Mariners and the over is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings.
Fading the Seattle Mariners has worked quite a bit in the second half of the season, and they've won back-to-back games just once since August 13. Shoemaker has pitched just 15.2 innings this season, but he's been rather solid and has given up just nine hits and three runs in his last 10 innings. The Los Angeles Angels are also playing some of their most consistent ball of the season right now with wins in seven of their last 10 tries. I'm going to continue fading the Mariners.
