The San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners face off on Saturday in an interleague showdown at Petco Park. On Friday it was the Pirates who found the success with a good pitching outing and that led to th Padres winning 6-1.
The Padres had to be happy they were able to bounce back after losing two games in a row against the Dodgers. This is an offense that is used to running up the score but as of late the offense has cooled off a bit. On Friday, the Padres used four runs in the 4th inning and that was enough to come away with the victory. Manny Machado has been the best offensive player for the Padres hitting 16 home runs and driving in 45 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Mariners who have surprised a lot of people with their play so far this year but they have came down a little bit as of late losing four games in a row. Over the last four games the Mariners have scored only eight runs total and in this game they need to get the offense going or they will lose again.
The Padres are 21-7 in their last 27 games overall. The Padres are 12-4 in their last 16 interleague games. The over is 8-1 in the Mariners last nine interleague games. The Mariners are 2-6 in their last eight interleague games. The Padres are 8-3 in their last 11 meetings against the Mariners.
Mike Clevinger will be on the mound for the Padres and coming into this game he has a 2-1 record and an ERA of 3.00 since coming over to the Padres.
Justus Sheffield will get the start for the Mariners and coming into this game he sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA Of 4.06.
Clevinger is the answer in this game and he is going to get the job done on the Padres. The Padres will run up the score against Sheffield and they will have no issue winning this game job on the run line.
