Oakland A’s (3-4 SU 3-4 O/U) at Seattle Mariners (4-4 SU 6-1-1 O/U)

MLB: Saturday, August 1, 2018 at 9:10 p.m. ET

After a solid start, the A’s have hit the skids losing three in a row. They lost the first game of this series and while the pitching has not been bad as of late in their three-game skid they have only totaled seven runs. Oakland is in third place in the AL West one game back of the Houston Astros and a half a game back of the Mariners.

Seattle is just the opposite of Oakland in they had a rough start but have regrouped and won their last three games. Also, unlike the A’s the Mariners’ offense has lit it up in their three-game streak totaling 23 runs.

While the A’s lost Game 1 of this series 5-3 they have won five of their last seven games against the Mariners.

Can’t Get to Walker

In their 5-3 loss to the Mariners in Game 1 of this series, the A’s could not get to starter Taijuan Walker only getting one hit off him in seven innings.

Marcus Semien hit a two-run triple in the eighth inning where the A’s scored three runs, but the late rally was not enough. Oakland only ranks tied for 24th in the Majors in runs scored and no player has more than one HR.

Mike Fiers (0-0 9.00 ERA) makes his second start of the season and his first one was a rough one giving up four runs on seven hits in four innings. He took a no-decision after the lineup and bullpen bailed him out in the 6-4 win over the L.A. Angels. Last season Fiers was 15-4 with an ERA of 3.90 and the A’s were 1-3 in his four starts against the Mariners.

Kikuci Looks for Better Outing

Yusei Kikuchi (0-0 12.27 ERA) gets the call in this division matchup and looks to rebound from his first one where he only lasted three 2/3 innings and gave up five runs on five hits. Like Fiers’ first start Kikuchi was bailed out in the game by the bullpen and lineup in beating the Houston Astros 7-5. Last season as a rookie he was 6-11 with an ERA of 5.46 and after winning his first start against the A’s he lost his last two where he gave up eight runs in 10 1/3 innings.

While the M’s rank tied for sixth in the Majors in runs scored they only rank 29th in team ERA. Kyle Seager and Kyle Lewis, who is batting .455, ranks fourth in the bigs with eight RBI apiece and seven players have gone yard. In the 5-3 win in Game 1 of this series, Seager had two RBI and Seattle had nine hits.

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don't believe me just ask. I don't just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
