The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Sunday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park. The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners need a win after losing 4 of their last 5 games.
The Los Angeles Angels have scored 8 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 6 of their last 9 games. The Angels have lost 10 of their last 11 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 122 hits and 79 RBI. Kenny Rosenberg gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 7.50 ERA and 7 strikeouts this season. This will be Rosenberg’s first career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners have scored 10 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Mariners have lost 15 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Ty France leads the Mariners with 82 hits and 44 RBI, while Julio Rodriguez and JP Crawford have combined for 129 hits and 47 RBI. Logan Gilbert gets the ball, and he is 7-2 with a 2.22 ERA and 76 strikeouts this season. Gilbert is 2-0 with a 4.02 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 3-13 in their last 16 road games and 6-23 in their last 29 overall. The Mariners are 4-11 in their last 15 games vs. a left-handed starter. The under is 4-1 in Angels last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Mariners last 6 overall. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Los Angeles Angels need to do more than win a couple of games for me to look their direction. Kenny Rosenberg hasn’t looked great through 6 innings, allowing 7 hits and 5 runs. Logan Gilbert has been one of the better pitchers in baseball, and that includes allowing 16 hits and 4 earned runs in his last 18 innings while striking out 16. Gilbert has a 2.12 ERA and .222 allowed batting average at home. Give me the Mariners and Gilbert on the mound.
