The Line: Cleveland Indians -148 / Seattle Mariners +120 -- Over/Under: 8
The Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Cleveland Indians look for another win after splitting their last eight games. The Indians have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Cleveland Indians are 10-3 this season when scoring more than one run. Carlos Santana leads the Indians with 21 hits and 11 RBI while Leonys Martin and Tyler Naquin have combined for 28 hits and nine RBI. Carlos Carrasco gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 12.60 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Carrasco is 4-3 with a 4.10 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Mariners have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners are 9-5 this season when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 28 hits and 24 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Tim Beckham have combined for 44 hits and 27 RBI. Erik Swanson gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 9.00 ERA and four strikeouts this season. This will be Swanson’s first career game against the Indians.
The Indians are 43-20 in their last 63 during game 3 of a series, 1-4 in Carrasco's last 5 starts with 4 days of rest and 1-6 in Carrasco's last 7 road starts. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The under is 15-7-1 in the last 23 meetings in Seattle and the over is 7-0 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 8-2-1 in Mariners last 11 overall. The over is 7-2 in Carrasco's last 9 starts vs. American League West.
The Seattle Mariners have gone ice cold just as quickly as they heated up with their ridiculous start, and now they're throwing out Swanson who has just two career major league innings under his belt. On the flip side, Carrasco has pitched five innings on the road this season and has given up 16 hits and 12 runs, allowing a .552 batting average. With the way the Seattle Mariners have swung the bats up to this point, they have to be excited about this matchup. There's value with the Mariners and the plus money.
