The Seattle Mariners will host the Baltimore Orioles for game two of their three-game set from T-Mobile Park on FS1. Seattle crushed Baltimore early in game one and won by seven, 9-2.

Orioles Preview & Projected Starter 

Baltimore comes in at 71-45 after falling to Seattle. The Orioles were overpowered from the start last night, and they’ll look to show some more fight this time around. The Baltimore offense is scoring 4.95 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.09 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP.  

Cole Irvin (1-3, 5.44 ERA, 44 Ks) will get the ball for Baltimore. The fifth-year pitcher has been pushed to a bullpen role with the acquisition of Jack Flaherty, and he’s pitched scoreless frames in his last three appearances. 

Orioles Player Trends & Props

Adley Rutschmann homered in two of three games against the Astros, and after producing a run in eight of the last nine games, he leads Baltimore in hits (116), with splits of .276/16/57. 

Anthony Santander had a quiet series with Houston, but he still leads Baltimore in HR (20) and RBI (63).

Ryan Mountcastle also went yard in two of three contests this week, and after collecting a hit in twelve straight games, he’s posting a line of .268/15/53.

Gunnar Henderson has recorded a hit in seven of the last ten games, and he’s totaled 19 homers and 51 RBI for the season. 


Mariners Preview & Projected Starter

Seattle moved to 63-52 after defeating Baltimore. The Mariners came out hot and took care of business last night, and they’ll look to pick up their ninth straight victory Saturday. The Seattle offense is 3.87 scoring runs per game, while batting .234, with a .313 on-base percentageThe pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. 

George Kirby (10-8, 3.32 ERA, 124 Ks) will start for Seattle. The second-year pitcher turned in a great outing in Anaheim last week, holding them to one run thru seven innings to earn his tenth victory. Kirby’s looked good in three of five post-All Star break starts, but he’ll face an Orioles team he fell to back in June here. Kirby was solid in that contest in Baltimore (6.1 IP, 2 ER, L), but he’ll look for better results here. 

Mariners Player Trends & Props

Julio Rodriguez has multiple hits in four of the last five games, and he leads Seattle in hits (119), with 18 home runs (18) and 62 RBI. 

Eugenio Suarez has produced a run in seven of the previous ten games, and he leads the Mariners in RBI (72), while hitting sixteen homers.  

J.P. Crawford collected three hits in the game one victory, and he leads the team in batting at .266, with 38 RBI.

Teoscar Hernandez has recorded a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he’s second on the team in home runs (17), while being third in runs batted in (60).  

Cal Raleigh went yard in Thursday’s victory, and he’s first on the club in homers (19), with 49 RBI.  


Corey’s Free Pick

Seattle also came through for us yesterday, and with the way they're playing right now, there’s zero reason to turn away. The Mariners are receiving production from all throughout the lineup, and if George Kirby can out with another solid outing, a ninth straight can happen tonight. I like backing Seattle to win here, and doubling down with the Over, as the magic number is manageable.
