Shane’s Free Pick
The Mariners are going to find success in this game. The Mariners have had some issues with Kirby on the mound but that is going to change in this game. The A’s offense has been awful all season and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going again here. Look for the Mariners to give Kirby some run support and that will be the difference as Seattle gets the job done.
