The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium.
The Mariners come into this game with an 80-62 record overall and they are coming off a win against the San Diego Padres in the last game. The offense scored six runs and had another strong pitching game on the way to the victory. The Mariners have leaned on the pitching all season and they are giving up only 3.70 runs per game which is 4th best in baseball. Eugenio Suarez has hit 31 home runs and driven in 84 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Angels who sit with a 61-82 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. Over the last two games the Angels have scored only four runs total and they need to find a way to get the offense going here. The Angels are averaging 3.81 runs per game which is 26th in the league. Mike Trout has hit 15 home runs and driven in 70 RBIs.
On the mound for the Mariners will be Robbie Ray and he sits with a 12-9 record and an ERA of 3.56. In his last start against the Atlanta Braves he went five innings giving up eight hits and four runs.
On the mound for the Angels will be Michael Lorenzen who sits with a 6-6 record and an ERA of 4.70. In his last start against the Houston Astros he went 5.2 innings giving up three hits and one run.
The Angels are 0-4 in their last four games. The Mariners are 7-1 in Ray’s last eight starts against a team with a losing record. The over is 5-0-1 in Rays last six starts on Friday. The over is 3-0-1 in the Angels last four home games.
The trends might point towards the over, but I expect this game to stay under the total. Ray sits with an ERA of 3.56 and Lorenzen in his last start gave up only one run. Both of these offenses aren’t great, and that is going to lead to this game being lower-scoring. Back the under to cash with ease.
