The Line: Baltimore Orioles +145 / Seattle Mariners -167 -- Over/Under: 9
The Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners meet Sunday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Baltimore Orioles look for back-to-back wins for the first time since May 4-6. The Orioles have scored 19 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Baltimore Orioles haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since May 4. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 84 hits and 35 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 139 hits and 46 RBI. Gabriel Ynoa gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 5.65 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Ynoa’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Seattle Mariners have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 85 hits and 57 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Daniel Vogelbach have combined for 120 hits and 69 RBI. Yusei Kikuchi gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 5.15 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. This will be Kikuchi’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series, 0-5 in their last 5 Sunday games and 0-4 in Ynoa's last 4 starts. The Mariners are 11-23 in their last 34 home games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series and 0-5 in Kikuchi's last 5 starts. The Orioles are 2-12 in the last 14 meetings in Seattle and 6-18 in the last 24 meetings. The over is 13-2-1 in Kikuchi's last 16 starts overall. The under is 5-2 in Ynoa's last 7 starts overall.
The Baltimore Orioles haven't won back-to-back games in over a month, and they've lost 12 of the 14 games Ynoa has pitched this season. Ynoa has given up 14 earned runs in his last 21.1 innings, and he has a 6.86 ERA with an allowed batting average of .271 on the road. Kikuchi has fallen off after a strong start to the season and has a 5.67 ERA at home this season. I want nothing to do with either of these pitchers and with the way both offenses have been hot this series, I'm going to side with the over.
