The Line: Seattle Mariners +150 / San Diego Padres -172 -- Over/Under: 8
The Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres meet Wednesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Mariners have allowed 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Seattle Mariners have split their last 12 games when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 32 hits and 27 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Tim Beckham have combined for 55 hits and 34 RBI. Felix Hernandez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Hernandez is 6-4 with a 2.88 ERA and 96 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres also need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Padres have allowed 10 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in each of their last nine games. The San Diego Padres have lost eight of their last 13 games when allowing three or more runs. Offensively, Fernando Tatis Jr. leads the Padres with 25 hits and 13 RBI while Wil Myers and Manny Machado have combined for 44 hits and 20 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series, 3-7 in Hernandezs last 10 road starts and 4-10 in Hernandezs last 14 starts. The Padres are 6-0 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 3-8 in their last 11 interleague home games and 6-21 in their last 27 during game 2 of a series. The Mariners are 6-2 in Hernandezs last 8 road starts vs. Padres and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Padres last 4 home games. The over is 5-1 in Hernandezs last 6 road starts.
Hernandez continues to show he's a shell of himself, as this year hasn't been much different than the past, as he's allowed 25 hits and 10 earned runs in 18.1 innings, and that includes an allowed batting average of .321. Paddock is living up to the hype through 20 career innings, striking out 21 batters and giving up just five earned runs. While the Seattle Mariners have the offense to win this game on a quick turnaround, I have a hard time putting my money on Felix Hernandez based on his struggles the past couple of seasons. I'll take the Padres, even if I don't love the price.
