The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Athletics have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Oakland Athletics have won six of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 45 hits and 18 RBI while Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty have combined for 82 hits and 43 RBI. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 4.19 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 8-4 with a 2.19 ERA and 85 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look to win back-to-back games for the second time since April 21. The Mariners have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners hav split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 47 hits and 36 RBI while Dee Gordon and Mitch Haniger have combined for 80 hits and 40 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 4.37 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Leake is 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
Athletics are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League West, 3-7 in their last 10 games following a loss and 2-8 in Andersons last 10 road starts. The Mariners are 13-6 in their last 19 vs. American League West, 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 0-5 in Leakes last 5 starts. The Athletics are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings in Seattle, 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and 4-1 in Andersons last 5 road starts vs. Mariners. The over is 7-2 in Leakes last 9 starts overall. The over is 6-1 in Andersons last 7 starts overall.
The Seattle Mariners have had a lot of success against the A's this season and got a much needed confidence boosting win last night in extra innings where they came back down a run with two outs. Anderson hasn't been the toughest pitcher in the world to hit this season, and he's allowed 11 runs in his last 16.1 innings. The Mariners have lost each of Leake's last five starts, and he's giving up a .296 batting average on the season with 11 homers in 47.1 innings. I have a hard time backing the Oakland Athletics on the road, and I'm not trying to get behind Leake with the way he's been getting blasted for the most part. I'll side with the over.
