The Line: Los Angeles Angels -116 / Seattle Mariners -105 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Tuesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Los Angeles Angels need a win here to rebound from a rough 1-4 start to the season. The Angels have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their five games. The Los Angeles Angels have lost five straight games when scoring less than five runs. Kole Calhoun leads the Angels with five hits and two RBI while Mike Trout and Andrelton Simmons have combined for seven hits and six RBI. Trevor Cahill gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA and three strikeouts this season. Cahill is 5-4 with a 3.40 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look to stay hot while building on their surprise 6-1 start to the season. The Mariners have scored 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in all seven games. The Seattle Mariners have won 12 of their last 16 games when scoring more than one run. Tim Beckham leads the Mariners with 10 hits and six RBI while Ryon Healy and Mitch Haniger have combined for 17 hits and 10 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 4.76 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 3-0 with a 3.32 ERA and 41 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 1-8 in their last 9 road games, 20-43 in their last 63 vs. a team with a winning record and 7-15 in their last 22 road games vs. a left-handed starter. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in Gonzales' last 5 home starts and 3-7 in Gonzales' last 10 starts. The Angels are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 9-3 in Gonzales' last 12 starts overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Angels last 6 overall.
Cahill wasn't great in his debut with the Angels and has always been a pitcher who has had issues with control. The Seattle Mariners have been the biggest surprise in baseball throughout the first week of the season, quieting a lot of critics who had this as a rebuilding year that won't translate into much winning. It's obviously still extremely early in the season, but the Mariners have been an offensive powerhouse out the gate and are a team I'm not trying to step in front of right now. I'll ride the hot hand here, especially with the Angels not able to produce offense.
