Diamondbacks Look to Continue Trend

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 12-14 this year and they have alternated wins and losses in their last seven games. If that trend were to continue, the Diamondbacks would be due for a win here. Arizona is coming off of a series loss to the Cardinals, where they lost two out of three games. Prior to that series, the Diamondbacks split a four game set with the Padres and lost two out of three against the Cubs. Arizona has not won back to back games in their last 10 contests and they are just 5-8 on the road this year. 

The Arizona pitching staff has a 3.96 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .253 opponent batting average. The Diamondbacks offense has scored 149 runs with a .261 batting average and a .339 on base percentage. Ketel Marte is batting .320 with five home runs and 14 RBI’s for the Diamondbacks this year. Arizona is the highest scoring team in the MLB right now and they have scored 14 runs or more in two of their last six. 

Mariners Look to Strong Pitching

The Seattle Mariners are 13-12 this year and they have won seven of their last nine games. Seattle is coming off of a series win against the Rangers, where they won two out of three games. Prior to that series, the Mariners won two out of three against Colorado and swept the Reds in three games. Seattle has played very well over their last nine games and they have allowed three runs or fewer in nine of their last ten games. 

The Seattle pitching staff has a 3.28 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, and a .221 opponent batting average. The Mariners offense has scored 93 runs with a .225 batting average and a .306 on base percentage. Ty France is batting .266 with one home run and six RBI’s for the Mariners this year. We have already highlighted Seattle’s excellent pitching in recent games, but their offense has scored four runs or more in six of their last nine. 

Starting Pitchers

The projected starting pitcher for Arizona is Zac Gallen, who is 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 27.0 innings pitched this year. Gallen has allowed one earned run or fewer in three of his five starts, but did allow five earned runs last time out. The projected starting pitcher for Seattle is Emerson Hancock, who is 2-2 with a 6.10 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 20.2 innings pitched this year. Hancock has allowed three earned runs or fewer in three of his four starts this year, but did allow eight earned runs against Milwaukee three starts ago.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Seattle Mariners Prediction 

Seattle comes into this series playing great baseball over the last two weeks, but they are facing Zac Gallen for the Diamondbacks. Gallen has been very strong for Arizona this year, but he has had some issues on the road. Arizona leads the MLB in runs scored so far this season and they will face Emerson Hancock, who I don’t trust in this start. I am interested to see if Gallen can put together a solid start on the road, but I will definitely back him over Emerson Hancock here. My Arizona Diamondbacks vs Seattle Mariners prediction is a win for the D-Backs.
