The Seattle Mariners are 4-5 this season and they have won three of their last four games. Seattle has won the first two games of this series by scores of 5-3 and 3-2. The Seattle pitching staff has a 3.18 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a .227 opponent batting average this year. The Mariners offense has scored 37 runs with a .239 batting average and a .300 on base percentage. Ty France is batting .342 with one home run and six RBI’s for the Mariners. The projected starting pitcher for Seattle is George Kirby, who is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP over 4.1 innings pitched this season.
The Cleveland Guardians are 5-4 this season and they have lost three of their last four games. Prior to losing the first two games of this series, Cleveland won two out of three against Oakland. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 4.03 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a .227 opponent batting average. The Guardians offense has scored 43 runs with a .250 batting average and a .333 on base percentage this year. Josh Naylor is batting .276 with two home runs and five RBI’s for the Guardians. The projected starting pitcher for Cleveland is Zach Plesac, who is 0-0 with a 54.00 ERA and a 8.00 WHIP over 1.0 inning pitched this season.
Seattle is 4-8 in their last 12 games and 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games. The over is 5-1 in Seattle’s last 6 Sunday games. Cleveland is 17-4 in their last 21 game three’s of a series and 5-3 in their last 8 home games. The over is 8-4 in Cleveland’s last 12 home games. Seattle is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Cleveland.
Seattle has won the first two games of this series and will be looking for the series sweep in this matchup. Seattle will have George Kirby on the mound, who allowed four runs over 4.1 innings pitched against the Angels in his first start. Cleveland will start Zach Plesac, who got shelled by the Athletics in his first outing. Both of these starting pitchers struggled in their first starts of the year, but I have to give the edge to Seattle in this matchup. I cannot trust Plesac after allowing six runs to Oakland last time out.
