The Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres face off on Wednesday at Safeco Field in interleague MLB action.
The Seattle Mariners got off to a slow start to the season but they have won their last four games including beating the Padres on Tuesday. Justin Ruggiano, Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager, Logan Morrison, and Mike Zunino each hit home runs as the Mariners scored 11 runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher James Paxton allowed three hits and struck out five over 6.0 scoreless innings to get the win to go to 1-2 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Mariners start Taijuan Walker who has allowed 39 hits and 25 earned runs while striking out 27 over 27.2 innings for a 1-3 record and a 8.13 ERA.
The San Diego Padres lost in Seattle on Tuesday as they dropped to .500 for the season. Derek Norris, Abraham Almonte, and Yangervis Solarte each had hits as the Padres scored four runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed eight hits and five runs while striking out five over 4.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-2 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Padres start James Shields who has allowed 41 hits and 20 earned runs while striking out 55 over 42.1 innings for a 4-0 record and a 4.25 ERA.
Seattle is 5-0 in their last five home games, 3-9 as an underdog, and 2-5 in Walker’s last seven starts. San Diego is 3-8 in their last 11 road games, 22-10 in game two of a series, and 0-5 in their last five interleague games. San Diego is 1-5 in their last six games in Seattle.
I expect more scoring in this one so the total at 7.5 looks to be a goner and my free play is the over. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
