Nationals Coming Off Another Series Loss

On Wednesday the pitching was good giving up only three runs, but the offense was a major problem scoring only two runs. Joey Meneses did hit a home run and drove in two hits. Jake Irvin went 6.1 innings giving up five hits and two runs. The Nationals are averaging 3.96 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.39 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd while the pitching is ranked 16th. CJ Abrams has hit seven home runs and driven in 21 RBIs.

  • The Nationals have covered the run line in each of their last six games against AL West opponents following a loss.
  • The Mariners have failed to cover the run line each of their last five games against NL East opponents that held a losing recor

Mariners shut Down on Thursday

The Mariners faced off against the New York Yankees on Thursday and the offense had an awful game. The Mariners finished with three hits and zero runs. Luis Castillo did have a solid start going five innings and giving up two runs, but it wasn’t enough as the pitching struggled. The Mariners are averaging 3.82 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.8 runs per game. The offense is ranked 26th in the league while the pitching is ranked 9th. They are batting .228 as a team which is 24th in the league. Cal Raleigh has hit 11 home runs and driven in 28 RBIs. Getting the start for the Mariners will be George Kirby who sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.99. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles he went six innings giving up nine hits and five earned runs. 

Why the Mariners Will Win

  • The Mariners have won 10 of their last 11 night games against National League opponents.
  • The Nationals have lost six of their last seven games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The Mariners have covered the run line in 11 of their last 12 night games against National League opponents.

Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals Prediction

George Kirby was lit up in his last start, but he faces a much worse offense in this game and that is going to be the difference here. Kriby still has a solid ERA of 3.99 and he’s going to be much better in this game. The Mariners offense is going to bounce back here, and although they might not run up the score they are going to score at least five or six runs. Back the Mariners on the money line.
