Milwaukee Brewers -170 / Seattle Mariners +156
The Seattle Mariners and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in game one of a three game interleague set in MLB action from Miller Park on Tuesday.
The Seattle Mariners will look to keep their momentum going after winning four of five, including their series against the Baltimore Orioles following a 13-3 rout in the series finale on Sunday. J.P. Crawford went 4 for 4 with a home run and four RBIs while Mac Williamson had a home run and three RBIs. Mallex Smith, Domingo Santana, Omar Narvaez, Austin Nola and Dee Gordon each had RBIs to round out Seattle’s scoring as a team in the win while Kyle Seager was the only Mariner to have a base hit and no RBI. Yusei Kikuchi gave up three runs on five hits while walking five and striking out three over six innings of work to improve to 4-5 on the year. Marco Gonzalez is going to get the start in game one and is 8-6 with a 4.38 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. This will be Gonzales’ second career start against Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to build on a series split with Cincinnati, taking the series finale by a final score of 7-5 on Sunday. Mike Moustakas and Orlando Arcia each had two RBIs with Arcia going 2 for 4 with a home run. Travis Shaw had a solo home run while Christian Yelich had a double and an RBI and Eric Thames added an RBI of his own to finish off Milwaukee’s scoring as a team in the win. Ryan Braun went 2 for 4 with a double while Ben Gamel had two hits and Yasmani Grandal added a base hit as well in the victory. Brandon Woodruff got the win to improve to 9-2 on the year after allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out 12 over seven innings of work. Zach Davies will start game one and is 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. This will be Davies’ first career start against Seattle.
Seattle is 7-21 in their last 28 road games and 5-11 in their last 16 series opening matchups while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 games against the NL Central. Milwaukee is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 6-2 in their last 8 home games while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 games against the AL West. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
The Mariners have been a very profitable fade play since their slide started at the end of April. However, this is arguably the best that the M’s have looked since that spell started, and while they’re wins over Baltimore and Kansas City, the results are coming. Gonzales is starting to look like the pitcher we saw at the beginning of the year, winning his last three starts, allowing two runs in each. Davies has been solid for most of the season, but he just allowed five runs in less than three innings in his last turn and if we’re being honest, Milwaukee hasn’t been playing like a team that should be favored like this in this spot. I’d either take a shot with Seattle and the plus money or leave this game alone altogether.
