The Colorado Rockies and Seattle Mariners meet Friday in MLB action at Safeco Field.
The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Colorado Rockies have won 10 of their last 14 games when scoring at least one run. Nolan Arenado leads the Rockies with 96 hit and 63 RBI while Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 183 hits and 98 RBI. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 6-8 with a 5.14 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. This will be Marquez’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look to keep the ball rolling after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Mariners have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Seattle Mariners have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring at least one run. Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 112 hits and 46 RBI while Dee Gordon and Mitch Haniger have combined for 178 hits and 83 RBI. Felix Hernandez gets the ball, and he is 8-6 with a 5.11 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. This will be Hernandez’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games, 18-40 in their last 58 interleague road games and 5-2 in Marquezs last 7 Friday starts. The Mariners are 20-6 in their last 26 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 interleague games and 4-0 in Hernandezs last 4 Friday starts. The Rockies are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle.
Marquez is one of those pitchers I fade no matter the situation, as the guy is batting practice whenever he pitches. Marquez has allowed 96 hits in 91 innings with 56 runs, which equals to a .269 allowed batting aerage and 1.44 WHIP. Felix Hernandez is no longer himself in his old age, but he happens to have the hottest team in baseball behind him, a team that consistently puts up crooked numbers and can't lose. The Mariners are a solid bet here, especially with a rather odd cheap price.
