The Line: Seattle Mariners -105 / Oakland Athletics -115 --- Over/Under: 8.5
The Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at Safeco Field.
The Oakland Athletics look for a victory after winning five of their last seven games. The Athletics have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Oakland Athletics have won 10 of their last 15 games when scoring more than one run. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 158 hits and 66 RBI while Jed Lowrie and Matt Chapman have combined for 306 hits and 164 RBI. Edwin Jackson gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 3.18 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Jackson is 5-0 with a 1.30 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Seattle Mariners have won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jean Segura leads the Mariners with 174 hits and 62 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Dee Gordon have combined for 314 hits and 126 RBI. Felix Hernandez gets the ball, and he is 8-13 with a 5.46 ERA and 121 strikeouts this season. Hernandez is 26-13 with a 2.78 ERA and 309 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 10-3 in their last 13 Wednesday games, 4-0 in Jacksons last 4 road starts and 13-3 in Jacksons last 16 starts. The Mariners are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series, 1-4 in Hernandezs last 5 home starts and 1-8 in Hernandezs last 9 starts. The Mariners are 32-14 in Hernandezs last 46 starts vs. Athletics, the Athletics are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Seattle and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Jackson has allowed three or less runs in eight of his last 10 starts and has an impressive 3.00 ERA on the road. Hernandez continues to allow crooked numbers every time he takes the hill, as he has a 5.00 ERA in his last nine innings and has allowed a combined 10 runs in his last 16.2 innings against these Athletics. Despite the loss last night, the Oakland Athletics continue to be kind to us profit wise and have lost two or more games in a row just four times in the second half of the season. I'll keep backing the A's.
