The Seattle Mariners and Baltimore Orioles meet Thursday in game two of an MLB doubleheader at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four straight games. The Mariners are 6-2 this season when scoring four or more runs. Mitch Haniger leads the Mariners with 14 hits and seven RBI while Kyle Seager and Ty France have combined for 25 hits and 15 RBI. The Seattle Mariners didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Orioles have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Orioles have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Cedric Mullins leads the Orioles with 19 hits and two RBI while Ryan Mountcastle and Maikel Franco have combined for 19 hits and 18 RBI. Bruce Zimmermann gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. This will be Zimmermann’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 Thursday games and 1-5 in their last 6 vs. a team with a losing record. The Orioles are 57-118 in their last 175 home games and 135-283 in their last 418 overall. The over is 6-1 in Mariners last 7 overall. The over is 5-0 in Orioles last 5 overall. The Mariners are 11-5 in the last 16 meetings. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
It's always tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the opening game. With that said, the Orioles at least have a starting pitcher named for this contest and their offense has been much better than expected. The Seattle Mariners also haven't proved they can beat subpar teams consistently and I do have questions about their offense on the road. At home, I'll take my chances with the Orioles.
