Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals Prediction

I’ll stay with the Mariners. Seattle will need a good start out of Gilbert, though. On May 9 versus the Twins, Gilbert coughed up eight earned in 4.0 innings during a loss. In his two starts since then Gilbert is 0-1 with six earned runs in 12.2 innings of work.

On Friday in the opener the Mariners had an early lead but a couple of rough innings did them in. Seattle got a solo homer fro JP Crawford (two hits). That’s about all the offense could do, though. The Mariners have to be sharper at the plate here.
