The Mariners have struggled a little bit recently, but they are still controlling the AL West standings. Seattle is going with Bryan Woo, who has been dominant so far this year. Taj Bradley has been very good in his last three starts for Tampa Bay, but I am going to back Woo here. My Seattle Mariners vs Tampa Bay Rays prediction is for Seattle to win.
