Luis Castillo Needs to be Lights Out
On the mound for the Mariners will be Luis Castillo who sits with a 13-7 record and an ERA of 3.08. Over his last two starts he has gone 12 innings and given up two runs. The Mariners are fighting for their playoff lives but they were dominated over the weekend against the Dodgers. The Mariners are averaging 4.75 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.09 runs per game. The offense is ranked 10th while the pitching is ranked 3rd.
Paul Blackburn Looks to Bounce Back
On the mound for the A’s will be Paul Blackburn who sits with a 4-5 record and an ERA of 4.14. In his last start against the Astros he went three innings giving up four hits and four runs.The Athletics offense has been an issue all season and it’s really hurting them again here. During the three games with the Padres the offense didn’t really have a good game at all with the offense, and it’s going to need to step up here. The A’s are averaging 3.68 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.75 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th while the pitching is ranked 29th.
Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be a blowout victory by the Mariners. Blackburn has really struggled heading into this game and the Mariners offense is going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. Look for the Mariners to score seven or eight runs here and that is going to be the difference here as Seattle is going to get the job done. Back the Mariners on the run line to cash here.
