A pair of West Coast clubs open their Interleague series as the last-place Padres take on the first-place Mariners in Seattle. The Mariners have surpassed expectations thus far, while the Padres are right where most people thought they’d be.
San Diego Padres
The Padres have stumbled on hard times lately by losing seven of their last 10 games. They’re holding it down in the cellar of the NL West, but
I don’t think many folks had them finishing any better than that. The season is still young of course, but the Padres were never meant to compete this year.
It’s tough to win ball games when you’re only scoring 3.7 runs per game, and the pitching hasn’t been much better.
The Friars will send Andrew Cashner to the mound, a guy who’s allowed three earned runs in four consecutive starts.
Despite a season ERA of 4.87, Cashner’s road ERA is 5.93. He’s been roughed up more than once on the road, but his offense hasn’t exactly given him much support.
San Diego is 1-3 in Cashner’s last four starts, and he’d love to turn that around against the Mariners.
The M’s find themselves atop the AL West, and their pitching has been out of this world.
Seattle’s pitching is 4th in ERA and WHIP, and with a big three of Felix Hernandez, Taijuan Walker and Nathan Karns, the M’s have the ability to hang with the best staffs in the majors.
They’ll send Karns to the mound to face the Padres, and they’ve been remarkable whenever he’s toed the rubber.
The Mariners are 7-2 when Karns pitches and he gives them the same confidence they get when Hernandez takes the mound.
He comes in with a 4-1 record to go along with a 3.53 ERA.
Robinson Cano leads the team in batting average, home runs and RBI, and he’s been the catalyst for Seattle’s top-10 offense all season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Padres are 3-12 in day games.
- Padres are 10-15 on the road.
- Mariners are 10-6 in day games.
- Mariners are 10-13 at home.
- Mariners are 7-2 when Karns starts.
Free San Diego Padres vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Nathan Karns doesn’t get the credit he deserves since the Mariners still have Felix Hernandez. Even though he doesn’t get the same recognition, Karns has been almost as brilliant as King Felix.
The M’s have won seven of Karns’s last eight starts, and it’s tough to see them losing to a last-place Padres team. Cashner has been awful on the road for San Diego, and I don’t see him breaking that trend against one of the best lineups in the American League.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle RL
The Mariners have the better lineup and the much better pitcher on the mound, so I’ll side with them at home.
