The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics meet Sunday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Mariners have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Kyle Lewis leads the Mariners with 54 hits and 28 RBI while J.P. Crawford and Kyle Seager have combined for 99 hits and 63 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 7-2 with a 3.06 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 5-3 with a 3.94 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Athletics have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Athletics have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 46 hits and 23 RBI while Mark Canha and Matt Olson have combined for 86 hits and 71 RBI. Frankie Montas gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 6.32 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. Montas is 2-1 with a 4.10 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games, 32-65 in their last 97 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Athletics are 21-7 in their last 28 during game 4 of a series, 47-19 in their last 66 home games and 65-30 in their last 95 games as a favorite. The under is 5-0 in Mariners last 5 overall. The under is 7-2-1 in Athletics last 10 overall. The Mariners are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Oakland and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
Marco Gonzales has allowed seven runs and 17 hits in his last 21 innings while Frankie Montas has allowed 11 runs and 20 hits in his last 14.1 innings. Montas has been awful this month and the Athletics are ice cold as a team, especially offensively this week. The Seattle Mariners have the pitcher in better form and are playing the better baseball lately. I'll take the M's and the plus money.
