The Seattle Mariners will host the Oakland Athletics for game two of their divisional series this Monday from T-Mobile Park. Seattle silenced Oakland in game one to pick up a comfortable victory, 7-0.

Athletics Preview & Projected Starter 

Oakland moved to 38-94 after losing to Seattle. The Athletics couldn’t get anything going in game one, and they’ll look to avoid a fourth straight loss here on Tuesday. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .222, with a .303 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 6.00 ERA, with a 1.62 WHIP. 

Ken Waldichuk (2-7, 6.05 ERA, 111 Ks) will get the ball for Oakland. The second-year lefty pitched well in DC last week, holding the Nats to one run over five innings of work. Three of Waldichuk’s last four starts have gone surprisingly well, and it’ll be interesting to see if he contains the O’s lineup here at home. 

Athletics Player Trends & Facts

Brent Rooker has collected a hit in six of the previous nine games, and he leads Oakland in home runs (22) and RBI (55). 

Zach Gelof has an identical streak of seven hits in his last ten games, and he’s posting splits of .276/10/21 thru 39 contests.

Ryan Noda has tallied a hit in seven of the previous ten games, and he’s posting a line of .233/12/41.

George Kirby (10-8, 3.28 ERA, 142 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.

Corey’s Free Pick

Seattle came through for us on Monday, and there’s little reason to sway away from them right now. The Mariners have been the best team in baseball since the All-Star break, and they’re more than trustworthy at home against the A’s, especially with George Kirby going. Let’s back Seattle again for game two of this divisional series. 

Corey’s Pick Mariners -1,5
