The Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at the Rogers Centre.
The Mariners come into this game with a 16-19 record overall and over the weekend against the New York Mets, they were able to win two of three. The offense scored eight runs on Sunday, and that was enough to secure the victory. The offense and pitching staff is both ranked in the bottom half of the MLB, but they have been playing better the last week. Ty France has been the top offensive player hitting five home runs and driving in 25 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Toronto Blue Jays who sit with an 18-17 record overall and they have lost six of their last seven games. In the last game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays, the offense couldn’t find any offense, and that led to the defeat. The Blue Jays offense is talented but they are averaging only 3.71 runs per game.
On the mound for the Mariners is Chris Flexen who sits with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 4.24. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went five innings giving up nine hits and six runs.
On the mound for the Blue Jays is Yusei Kikuchi who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he went 5.1 innings giving up two hits and two runs.
The Mariners are 0-5 in their last five games following a win. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. The under is 5-0 in Flexen’s last five road starts. The Blue Jays are 0-5 in their last five games during Game 1 of a series.
Both of these pitchers have been awful, and I don’t see it being any different in this game. Flexen is coming off a game where he gave up six runs, and I expect he is going to be lit up by the Blue Jays offense. Look for this game to be a shootout, and the over is going to cash.
