The Seattle Mariners will host the Oakland Athletics for their divisional series finale this Wednesday from T-Mobile Park. Oakland scored in the first two innings and held on to win by two, 3-1.

Athletics Preview & Projected Starter 

Oakland moved to 38-94 after losing to Seattle. The Athletics finally responded to the Mariners with a game two victory, and they’ll look to steal a series win Wednesday. 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. 

Zach Neal (1-0, 6.88 ERA, Ks) will get the call for Oakland. The seventh-year pro came through with his longest outing of the year in the Southside last week, holding the White Sox to two runs in five innings to earn his first win of the season. Neal contained a struggling Chicago team, but business may pick up for him here in Seattle.

Athletics Player Trends & Facts

Brent Rooker has multiple hits in the game two victory, and he leads Oakland in home runs (22) and RBI (55). 

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

Shea Langeliers provided a second-inning homer to power the G2 win, and he’s second on the team in homers (16) and RBI (47).

Mariners Preview & Projected Starter

Seattle moved to 75-57 after falling to Oakland. The Mariners made the choice to rest George Kirby for a date in Queens with the Mets this weekend, and after paying the price for that decision, they’ll attempt to close strong here. The Seattle offense is 3.87 scoring runs per game, while batting .234, with a .313 on-base percentage. The  pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. 

Bryce Miller (8-4, 3.90 ERA, 95 Ks) will start for Seattle. The rookie pitcher had a short outing against Kansas City at home last week, allowing three runs in four innings, but he avoided the losing decision. Miller has managed to hold teams to three runs or less in four straight starts, but he’ll look to rev things up here in a light matchup at home. Miller only gave up one to Oakland thru twelve innings back in May, and he’ll look to deliver for a third time against them here. 

Mariners Player Trends & Props

Julio Rodriguez has gone yard in three straight appearances, and he leads Seattle in batting (.286) and hits (153), with 24 home runs and 87 RBI. 

Teoscar Hernandez has multiple hits in seven of the last ten games, and he’s posting splits of .264/22/78.

Eugenio Suarez doubled twice in the game one win, and he’s totaled 18 homers and 83 RBI for the season.  

Cal Raleigh has produced a run in five of the previous nine games, and he leads the club in homers (25), with 64 RBI. 

J.P. Crawford has totaled multiple bases in four of the last six games, and he’s posting a line of .268/12/42.

Corey’s Free Pick

It’s hard to pin last night on what we’ve seen from the Mariners, as a struggling newcomer in Luke Weaver put them behind early and Julio Rodriguez was given the night off, but they did indeed have plenty of time to make a comeback at home. Most stability will take the mound for the M’s with first-year stud Bryce Miller set to face the A’s for the third time this season, and I believe the host get back to business here. Seattle’s been dominant this month, and after letting one slip away last night, let’s back them to close August with another divisional series win.

Corey’s Pick Mariners -1.5
