The Seattle Mariners and their home run-hitting lineup will take on the Baltimore Orioles and their sluggers as the two teams face off in the second of a three-game series.
The M’s and O’s both possess dangerous lineups and quality pitching, and it’s no secret why both teams will be playoff contenders this year.
The Seattle Mariners have hit a bit of a rough patch, but they still continue to exceed expectations.
Led by Robinson Cano, who leads the team in batting average (.290), home runs (12), and RBI (34), the Mariners are neck and neck with the Texas Rangers in the AL West.
Not to be outdone by their home run hitting line up, which ranks 4th in the majors with 50 home runs, is their phenomenal rotation which is almost as effective as any other pitching staff.
A big piece of that rotation has been Taijuan Walker, who comes in with a 2-2 record and a 2.63 ERA. The impressive Walker has an impressive WHIP of just 1.09 and a K/BB ratio of more than 6/1.
Walker has been phenomenal owning the strike zone with 30 strikeouts and just four walks over his last five starts. He’ll get the start in this one.
The Orioles continue to lead the charge in the AL East and are playing especially dangerous at home. Baltimore comes in with a 16-6 record at Oriole Park, including a 9-4 mark at home in May.
Led by the powerful bats of Manny Machado, Mark Trumbo and Adam Jones, the O’s rank 6th in the majors in OBP, 4th in slugging percentage, and 1st in home runs.
Chris Tillman will get the nod against the Mariners as he looks to continue his red-hot start to the year. Tillman is 5-1 with a 2.58 ERA and has a K/BB ratio of 3/1.
Tillman owns a 1.89 ERA at home and has won four of five decisions while playing at Oriole Park. The Orioles’ ace has only lost once this season, and that was more than a month ago.
With a top-five lineup and their best pitcher on the mound, it’s tough to bet against the Orioles in this one.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Both teams come in with quality pitchers on the mound, but I’m siding with the home team in this game. While the Mariners and Orioles both possess great lineups, the O’s have been able to hit every pitcher they’ve faced.
The combo of Machado-Trumbo-Jones is one of the best hitting trios in the majors, so I’ll stick with them in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore ML
Each team has legitimate reasons why it could win this game, though Baltimore’s record when Chris Tillman starts is phenomenal. I’ll play the O’s.
