The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics meet Friday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Seattle Mariners have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 75 hits and 49 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Mitch Haniger have combined for 112 hits and 81 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 6-6 with a 4.77 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 2-1 with a 3.91 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Athletics have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Oakland Athletics have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 75 hits and 33 RBI while Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty have combined for 127 hits and 62 RBI. Chris Bassitt gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.57 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. Bassitt is 0-2 with a 3.33 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 7-19 in their last 26 road games, 5-15 in their last 20 vs. American League West and 1-7 in Gonzales' last 8 starts. The Athletics are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 1 of a series, 6-1 in their last 7 games following an off day and 2-8 in Bassitt's last 10 starts with 5 days of rest. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Athletics last 5 overall. The over is 41-19-3 in Mariners last 63 overall.
I'm still blindly fading the Seattle Mariners until they actually are able to finish games. Either way, this feels like a game the Mariners will lose when you consider Gonzales has given up 19 hits and 18 earned runs in his last 14.1 innings. Bassitt has allowed three or less earned runs in eight of his nine starts and is allowing a .210 batting average on the season through 53 innings. Give me the A's.
