The Line: Seattle Mariners +200 / Minnesota Twins -238 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins meet Wednesday in MLB action at Target Field.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing 10 of their last 14 games. The Mariners have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six fo their last seven games. The Seattle Mariners have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 74 hits and 48 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Mitch Haniger have combined for 112 hits and 81 RBI. Tommy Milone gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 3.10 ERA and 20 strikeouts this season. Milone is 2-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Twins have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Minnesota Twins have won 13 of their last 15 games when scoring four or more runs. Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with 85 hits and 35 RBI while Eddie Rosario and C.J. Cron have combined for 127 hits and 95 RBI. Jose Berrios gets the ball, and he is 8-2 with a 3.14 ERA and 78 strikeouts this season. Berrios is 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 11-28 in their last 39 games following a loss, 7-19 in their last 26 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series. The Twins are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. American League West, 50-21 in their last 71 home games and 12-2 in Berrios' last 14 starts. The Mariners are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-0-1 in Berrios' last 5 home starts. The over is 40-19-3 in Mariners last 62 overall.
Milone has been solid through 20.1 innings, but he's lost three of those four games due to the Mariners finding ways to lose over this brutal losing stretch. I've said many times in the past that the Seattle Mariners are fade material until they're able to put together a decent week where they look like an MLB team for a change. The Twins ar 11-2 with Berrios on the mound this season, and he has a 2.72 ERA through 39.2 innings at home. These are two teams completely on the opposite end of things. I'll take the Twins and the RL for added value.
