The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Friday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park. The Los Angeles Angels need a win after losing 5 of their last 7 games. The Seattle Mariners look for a win after splitting their last 8 games.
The Los Angeles Angels have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Angels have lost 7 of their last 8 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 95 hits and 62 RBI, while Jared Walsh and Taylor Ward have combined for 162 hits and 76 RBI. Patrick Sandoval gets the ball, and he is 3-7 with a 3.61 ERA and 97 strikeouts this season. Sandoval is 0-3 with a 2.83 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Mariners have won 6 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ty France leads the Mariners with 106 hits and 52 RBI, while Julio Rodriguez and Adam Frazier have combined for 192 hits and 84 RBI. Robbie Ray gets the ball, and he is 8-8 with a 4.11 ERA and 139 strikeouts this season. Ray is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 8-23 in their last 31 road games and 17-43 in their last 60 overall. The Mariners are 12-4 in their last 16 home games and 23-8 in their last 31 overall. The under is 7-2 in Angels last 9 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Mariners last 6 overall. The Angels are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle.
Robbie Ray isn’t the pitcher he was last season, and I’m not excited to lay -200 juice with him on the hill. However, the Los Angeles Angels remain a joke of a baseball team, and Patrick Sandoval is coming off a July where he allowed 33 hits and 17 runs in 24.2 innings. The Seattle Mariners continue to play impressive ball, and they need to keep winning to keep pace in the wild card race. Give me the M’s and the RL for max betting value.
