Can the Mariners Bounce Back from Friday? 

The Mariners jumped out to a 7-0 series lead on Friday and it looks like they were going to cruise to the easy victory. The pitching really started to struggle as the game went on though, and they gave up three runs in the bottom of the 9th to be knocked off. Mitch Garve finished with a hit and two RBIs. The Mariners are averaging 3.72 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.56 runs per game. The offense is ranked 27th in the league while the pitching is ranked 3rd. This is a team that has leaned on the pitching but the offense just hasn’t been strong enough overall. Cal Raleigh has hit 11 home runs and driven in 33 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Mariners will be Luis Castillo who sits with a 5-6 record and an ERA of 2.99. In his last start against the Angels he went seven innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

Royals Have to be Flying High

The Royals have to be flying high after what they were able to do Friday. After falling behind in a big way, the offense broke out and they ended up winning 10-9. MJ Melendez had a strong game finishing with a home run and four RBIs. The Royals are averaging 4.86 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.71 runs per game. The offense is ranked 7th in the league while the pitching is 6th. They have a run differential of 1.14 which is 6th in the league. Bobby Witt has hit 1 home runs and driven in 46 RBIs. Getting the start for the Royals will be Alec Marsh who sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 4.76. In his last start against the San Diego Padres he went five innings giving up seven hits and five runs. 

Seattle Mariners vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

The Mariners are going to dominate this game. Castillo in his last start gave up two hits and zero runs and he’s going to dominate this game. The Royals bats are going to be ice cold here. Marsh is also going to struggle here and the Mariners bats are going to be elite here. The Mariners are going to run up the score and they will cruise to the victory. Even though they blew the game on Friday it’s not going to be the same here. The Mariners are going to jump out to a big lead and won’t take their foot off the gas. Back the Mariners on the money line.
