The Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at the Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays have won each of the first two games of the series. The Blue Jays won the first game 6-2 and on Tuesday they won 3-0. 

The Mariners come into this game with a 16-21 record overall and after a nice start to the season, they haven’t played as well as of late. The Mariners have lost three of their last four games, and the offense just hasn’t been good enough. Ty France has been the top player for the Mariners hitting five home runs and driving in 25 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Blue Jays who sit with a 20-17 record overall but before this series they also had been a bit inconsistent. The Blue Jays are averaging only 3.76 runs per game which is 23rd in the league. George Springer has been the top player for the Blue Jays hitting seven home runs and driving in 21 RBIs.

Getting the start for the Mariners will be Marco Gonzales who sits with a 1-4 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start against the New York Mets, he went 6.2 innings giving up five hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Blue Jays is Kevin Gausman who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 2.40. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he went seven innings giving up five hits and four runs. 

The Blue Jays are 4-1 in Gausman’s last five starts. The Mariners are 1-6 in their last seven games against the American League East. The over is 6-1 in the Mariners' last seven games against a right-handed starter. The under is 5-1 in the Mariners six games on Astroturf. 

The Mariners have scored only two runs so far in this series, and I don’t see them magically finding success in this game. Gausman has been strong this year sitting with an ERA of 2.40, and he is going to lockdown in this game. Back the Blue Jays on the run line.
