Seattle Mariners +105 / Los Angeles Angels -125
The Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners meet in game three of their four game AL West division set from T-Mobile Park in MLB action on Saturday.
The Los Angeles Angels will look to rebound after dropping game two on Friday by a final score of 4-3. Shohei Ohtani had a home run and two RBIs while Mike Trout added a solo home run to round out the Angels’ scoring as a team in the losing effort. Brian Goodwin had a pair of his while David Fletcher added a base knock of his own to cap off the Halos’ offense as a team in the defeat. Tyler Skaggs took the loss, falling to 4-5 on the year after allowing four runs on five hits while striking out eight over seven innings of work. Andrew Heaney will start game three and is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and 8 strikeouts this season. In his career, Heaney is 1-3 with a 3.76 ERA and 35 strikeouts against Seattle.
The Seattle Mariners will look to build on their game two victory that evened the set up at one win apiece on Friday. Tom Murphy had a home run, a double and two RBIs while Jay Bruce added a solo home run and Dylan Moore added an RBI of his own to round out Seattle’s scoring as a team in the win. Mitch Haniger chipped in a base knock as well as the M’s put up just five hits as a team in the winning effort. Mike Leake gave up two runs on five hits over seven innings of work to improve to 4-6 on the year with the victory. Anthony Bass closed out the 9th for his 1st save of the season. Tommy Milone will start game three and is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. In his career, Milone is 6-3 with a 5.54 ERA and 49 strikeouts against the Angels.
Los Angeles is 11-5 in Heaney’s last 16 starts and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 36-15-2 in their last 53 games against a left-handed starter. Seattle is 7-24 in their last 31 games overall and 2-9 in their last 11 division games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 Saturday games. Los Angeles is 3-10 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams and 2-8 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams in Seattle.
I genuinely think you could make a case for either side looking at the pitching matchup, as Heaney has thrown just five innings this season while Milone has made just two starts against the Rangers. However, the difference for me if that the Angels are playing much better baseball than the Mariners right now, even with Seattle’s win on Friday. The price isn’t bad given the recent form of both teams, so I’ll side with the Angels on the road on Saturday.
