The Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners meet Sunday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Athletics have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Oakland Athletics have won 15 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 97 hits and 46 RBI while Matt Chapman and Ramon Laureano have combined for 171 hits and 98 RBI. Daniel Mengden gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 4.67 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. Mengden is 0-2 with a 5.24 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Mariners have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Seattle Mariners have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs.

The Seattle Mariners didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The Athletics are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series, 4-12 in their last 16 Sunday games and 20-8 in Mengdens last 28 starts. The Mariners are 13-27 in their last 40 home games, 7-20 in their last 27 vs. American League West and 0-4 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series. The Athletics are 5-11 in the last 16 meetings in Seattle and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-0-1 in Mariners last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Athletics last 7 overall.
The Oakland Athletics haven't lost back-to-back games since their June 8 doubleheader against the Texas Rangers. Mengden doesn't have great numbers this season, but he should be fine as long as he can get his control down, as he's walked a ton of batters in a shot sample size. This game simply comes down to the form of both teams, as the A's have been consistent and give themselves a chance to win each night, while the M's look bad most nights and haven't been able to string wins together much these last two months. I have more trust in these A's, even if they're on the road.
