The Mariners won their last series against the Texas Rangers and are on a 3-game winning streak heading into Saturday. They are currently ranked 4th in baseball in home runs with 195.
2B Robinson Cano is having a great offensive season with a batting average of .303 and 32 homers; Nelson Cruz has also brought the lumber with 35 home runs.
The Mariners won their most recent series’ against Oakland and have played very well against them this season. They are in 3rd place in the A.L West, just 1 game behind Houston at the moment.
They are in it and every game counts.
The Mariners starter, lefty James Paxton, is not having a great season (though he occasionally shows promise), with an ERA of 4.03 and 4-6 win-loss record.
Heading into Saturday, he’s given up 114 hits and in just 96 innings pitched. Since his debut with the Mariners in 2013, his ERA has gone from 1.50 to 4.03 – samples sizes are not great but that is not a good trend.
He’ll need to be careful around dangerous hitters like Khris Davis and Danny Valencia from the A’s.
The A’s are not having a great season – they are currently in last place in the A.L West with a 60-80 win-loss record heading into Saturday.
A lot of their players are currently injured and out for the season so their roster has a lot of unknowns.
Their best offensive player by far is Khris Davis, who is having a very surprising power surge this season. 3B Danny Valencia is also having a career year, leading the team in hitting.
The A’s won their most recent series against the LA Angels but lost the series before that against Boston.
Last place teams are pretty unpredictable right now.
Their starting pitcher, Raul Alcantara, who made his major league debut in his last start, being called up from the Oakland minor league team in Nashville. He looked awesome in Nashville, with an ERA of 1.18 before having been called up.
In his lone start, he gave up 5 hits and 5 runs in 3 innings pitched.
The Athletics are hoping they can find some arms for the long haul but at the same time any help form the bullpen is questionable.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I normally love rookie starters due to the unfamiliarity but I am not very high on Oakland in this one.
This team is pretty bad right now so even if Alcantara can rebound with a solid outing they might not put up enough to win the game against the more established Seattle.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle -135
When you factor in the meaning of this game to the Ms they are the easy play.
At the current line it is borderline whether you want to go with a moneyline play or push things with the runline
