|Date & Time||Friday July 19, 2019, 10:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Angels / Seattle Mariners -- Over/Under:
The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Friday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Angels have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Los Angeles Angels have won 12 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 97 hits and 32 RBI while Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella have combined for 181 hits and 119 RBI. Jaime Barria gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 5.22 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season. Barria is 2-3 with a 3.73 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing 13 of their last 15 games. The Mariners have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in their last five games. The Seattle Mariners haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 2. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 104 hits and 64 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Mallex Smith have combined for 152 hits and 61 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 4.60 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. Leake is 5-5 with a 4.33 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series, 5-1 in their last 6 vs. American League West and 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games. The Mariners are 5-17 in their last 22 games following an off day, 4-1 in Leake's last 5 home starts and 5-11 in Leake's last 16 starts. The Angels are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1-1 in Mariners last 6 home games. The over is 5-2 in Angels last 7 overall.
Barria hasn't been good in 29.1 innings this season, and most of his struggles have come on the road where he has a 10.03 ERA and .377 allowed batting average. Leake just got rocked by these Angels in his last start, allowing eight hits and four earned runs in 0.2 innings. However, Leake has been much better at home where he has a 3.42 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 52.2 innings. The Seattle Mariners are a team we've blindly faded often this season, but backing Barria isn't an option, and we're getting the rested team at home. I'll back the M's for the first time in a while.
