SPORTS CHAT PLACE

The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Saturday in a MLB doubleheader at T-Mobile Park. The Los Angeles Angels need a win after losing 12 of their last 15 games. The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 12 games.

The Los Angeles Angels have scored 6 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 7 games. The Angels have lost 17 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 64 hits and 37 RBI, while Mike Trout and Jared Walsh have combined for 117 hits and 74 RBI. Patrick Sandoval and TBD will get the ball for the Angels.

The Seattle Mariners have scored 9 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Mariners have lost 13 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Ty France leads the Mariners with 81 hits and 44 RBI, while Julio Rodriguez and JP Crawford have combined for 128 hits and 46 RBI. Chris Flexen and TBD will get the ball for the Mariners.

The Angels are 1-11 in their last 12 road games and 6-22 in their last 28 overall. The Mariners are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Angels last 4 overall. The under is 5-0 in Mariners last 5 overall. The Angels are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Seattle.

Game 1 Pick: Patrick Sandoval has been excellent this season, and he’s been even better on the road, where he has a 2.57 ERA through 21 innings. Chris Flexen has bee more than hittable this season, and that includes allowing a .279 batting average at home. The Angels are a tough team to back with confidence, but they should be able to grind out a win on the road behind one of their better pitchers.

Game 2 Pick: Neither team listed a starting pitcher for the second game, but assuming the Los Angeles Angels win game 1, the Mariners probably bounce back here. Not only is it hard to sweep a doubleheader, but the Angels haven’t won back to back game since May 24. With not much to go off here, I’ll lean toward the Mariners.
