Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Angels

When and Where: Friday, September 14 at 10:07 p.m. ET at Angels Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, CA

The Mariners had lost four of their last five games before winning the series opener Thursday night against the Angels. Los Angeles had won six of seven before the loss to Seattle. The Angels are one game below .500 entering Friday.

Struggling Down the Stretch

Seattle’s James Paxton was scratched from the start due to an illness. The Mariners will go with a bullpen game, but there hasn’t been a starter announced at the moment. Seattle ranks 18th in baseball in Team ERA.

The Mariners have been inconsistent offensively lately. Seattle was able to win the series opener against the Angels Thursday night, but it was the first time Seattle has scored more than five runs in a game since Sept. 1. Nelson Cruz, who hit a three-run homer, paced Seattle. Seattle’s one through four hitters combined for seven hits and five RBIs. Robinson Cano has an RBI in four straight.

Playing Well

Matt Shoemaker is 2-0 with a 3.45 ERA in three starts this season. He just returned in early September after missing months with a forearm injury that required surgery. Shoemaker allowed three earned runs over five innings in a win over the White Sox. He’s yet to pitch a game at home this season, but Seattle has won all three times Shoemaker has pitched. He went five innings, allowing only two hits and no runs on Sept. 3 in his first game back from surgery.

The Angels have looked great lately. Los Angeles scored eight runs in Wednesday’s win over the Rangers. Jose Fernandez homered in the win over the Rangers. He has homered in two of his past three games played. Andrelton Simmons was terrific in the win over the Rangers, collecting three hits and one RBI. Mike Trout collected two hits Thursday night in the 8-2 loss to the Mariners.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Seattle’s pitching hasn’t been that special this year. It’s unclear who will get the nod, but it seems like several relief pitchers will handle that duty. Look for the Angels to continue their recent strong play Friday night.
