The Line: Seattle Mariners +110 / Oakland Athletics -132 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics meet Sunday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Seattle Mariners have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 78 hits and 49 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Mitch Haniger have combined for 109 hits and 57 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 5-6 with a 4.26 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Leake is 2-3 with a 4.45 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after winning six of their last 10 games. The Athletics have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Oakland Athletics have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 79 hits and 35 RBI while Matt Chapman and Ramon Laureano have combined for 131 hits and 67 RBI. Tanner Anderson gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 6-15 in their last 21 vs. American League West, 2-7 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 3-8 in Leake's last 11 starts. The Athletics are 4-9 in their last 13 vs. American League West, 2-7 in their last 9 Sunday games and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The Mariners are 6-2 in Leakes last 8 starts vs. Athletics and the over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Athletics last 7 home games. The over is 6-2 in Leake's last 8 road starts.
I'll continue to blindly fade the Seattle Mariners until they're able to put together a run that changes my mind, as this team just can't finish games and their pitching staff keeps getting blasted. To make matters worse, the Mariners seem to be throwing in the towel and just traded one of their top offensive players in Edwin Encarnacion to the New York Yankees. It's a mess right now in Seattle. I'll take the Oakland Athletics and the reasonable pice.
