The Tampa Bay Rays and Seattle Mariners face off on Sunday in an American League MLB showdown at T-Mobile Park. The Rays have won the first three games of this series. The first two games were by a run, while Saturday, the Rays won 8-2. 

Th Rays come into this game with an 18-10 record overall and they have won six games in a row. In each of the last two games, the Rays have scored eight runs, and it’s going to be important that the offense stays strong. The Rays are averaging 4.48 runs per game which is 10th best in the MLB. Wander Franco has been the top player for the Rays hitting four home runs and driving in 15 RBIs.

Getting the start for the Mariners will be Chris Flexen who sits with a 1-4 record and an ERA of 3.10. In his last start against the Astros he went five innings giving up two hits and one run. 

The Rays are 7-0 in their last seven road games. The Mariners are 0-5 in their last five overall. The over is 5-0 in the Mariners last five games on Sunday. The under is 5-o in Flexen’s last five starts. The under is 4-0 in Flexen’s last 4 starts following a team loss in their previous game.

Flexen’s ERA is only 3.10 but he still only sits with a 1-4 record overall. Flexen hasn’t gotten a ton of run support, and the Mariners offense has really struggled coming into this game. Look for the Rays to score four or five runs, and that will be enough for the visiting team to get the job done. Back the Rays on the money line.
