Mariners Look for Split Series 

The Mariners won game two of this series, but in Game 3 the pitching wasn’t good enough. They couldn’t keep the ball in the ballpark and that led to the 6-3 defeat. George Kirby went five innings giving up four hits and four runs. The Mariners are averaging 3.75 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.33 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 1st. They currently have a run differential of 0.42 runs which is 12th in the league. They also have a batting average of .222 which is 25th in the league. Cal Raleigh has hit nine home runs and driven in 20 RBIs so far this season. 

Logan Gilbert Looks for Strong Start 

Getting the start for the Mariners will be Logan Gilbert who sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 1.69. In his last start against the Houston Astros, he went eight innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

Twins Pick Up Another Win

The Twins faced off against the Mariners on Wednesday and they were able to secure the 6-3 victory. Wili Castro, Trevor Larnach, and Carlos Correa all hit home runs to pace the Twins. Jhoan Duran came in the 9th inning to pick up the save. The Twins are averaging 4.63 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.31 runs per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league while the pitching is ranked 14th. They are averaging 8.03 runs per game which is 16th in the league. Ryan Jeffers has been good hitting seven home runs and driving in 26 RBIs. The Twins will meet the Blue Jays, Yankees, and Guardians after this series.

Buxton Still Hurt

Byron Buxton is dealing with a knee injury and is expected to be out for a while. Getting the start for the Twins will be Pablo Lopez who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 4.30. In his last start against the Boston Red Sox, he went six innings giving up five hits and one run. 

Seattle Mariners vs Minnesota Twins Betting Prediction

This game is going to be a pitchers duel. Gilbert has been lights out all season and he currently sits with an ERA of 1.9. Lopez gave up one run in his last start and he’s going to lockdown again here. The Twins and Mariners are both going to struggle here, and that will be the difference here. I expect only two or three runs total to be scored, and this game will stay under the total. Pick the under.
