The Oakland Athletics will host the Seattle Mariners for game two of their divisional series this Wednesday from Oakland Alameda. Seattle stole game one late after nearly being held scoreless, 2-1.
Mariners Betting Preview
Seattle enters at 13-16 after defeating Oakland. The Mariners were nearly silenced completely by the A’s, but heroics would prevent the embarrassment, and they’ll look to win another manageable matchup here. The Seattle offense is scoring 4.47 runs per game, while batting .215, with a .294 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.52 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Jarred Kelenic came thru with the go-ahead RBI last night, and he leads the team in batting (.309). Cal Raleigh leads the team in RBI (18), after a big series versus Toronto last week.
Logan Gilbert (1-1, 4.23 ERA, 34 Ks) will start for Seattle. The third-year Mariner has managed to strikeout batters consistently, but he’s allowed four earned runs in each of his last two starts. Gilbert has cleared seven strikeouts in three of five outings, with six Ks in the other two appearances.
Athletics Betting Preview
Oakland moved to 6-24 following the loss to Seattle. The Athletics came close to winning consecutive games for the first time this season last night, and they’ll attempt to finish the mission this time. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .225, with a .307 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 7.53 ERA, with a 1.74 WHIP. Brent Rooker has been one of the lone positives for the A’s this season, and after recording a hit in six of his last eight games, he leads the team in batting (.333), HR (9), and RBI (11).
JP Sears (0-2, 6.23 ERA, 15 Ks) will get the start for Oakland. The second-year lefty had a tough time in Anaheim last week, allowing six runs in just 4.1 innings pitched, and a return to Alameda may just be what he needs. Sears struck out eleven in Austin against Texas in the start prior, so he may be able to recover against an inconsistent Seattle lineup.
Seattle vs Oakland Trends
Seattle is 14-15 against the spread this season, with a 14-14-1 O/U record. Oakland is 13-17 ATS this year, with a 19-9-2 over/under record.
Corey's Free Pick
After nearly being no-hit by arguably the worst team in the league, Seattle has to reassert themselves today. The Mariners will carry an advantage on the mound again in this one, so let’s see if they can compliment good pitching with offensive production this time around. Roll with Seattle to win game two on Wednesday.
