It’s the first game of a 3 game tilt for these two underachieving ball clubs who are both inching their way back to a .500 record.

It’s a battle of Aces in this one. Chris Sale is facing off against the King in Felix Hernandez.

Chicago White Sox

Three of the last four series have resulted in sweeps for the Sox. Unfortunately, two of those three were against them including their latest series in Anaheim, a 3 game set in which Chicago lost by a combined total of 8-4.

They are looking to take this series from Seattle in the Emerald City against one of baseball’s premiere pitchers.

In the lineup, it seems to be the Jose Abreu show. Last year’s rookie of the year has tallied 22 home runs and 70 RBI’s en route to a .295 batting average – all team highs this season.

On the mound, it has been the Chris Sale show. With 11 wins, 208 strikeouts and a 3.32 ERA, Sale is leading the team in all 3 of the major pitching categories.
His last outing was out of a storybook.

He fanned 15 Cubs (tying a career high) in 7 innings en route to a 3-1 victory which snapped the Cubs 9-game win streak. He set many team records in the process for double digit strike out totals with the outing being his 11th this season in where he had 10 or more K’s.

Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners have been an enigma this season. A team featuring MLB home run leader Nelson Cruz, Robinson Cano and one of baseball’s top pitchers in Felix Hernandez has been mediocre at best this season.

When everything clicks, the Mariners look like one of the best teams in baseball, but the simple fact of the matter is that they have been far too inconsistent to make a run at even the second Wild Card spot let alone the division.

Enter Felix Hernandez. The first of the season was all Hernandez. The second half…not so much. In the month of August, King Felix is sporting a 9.00 ERA to go with his 2.00 WHIP after allowing 16 runs so far.

Hernandez is at home and will have the King’s Court cheering him on, which is a big plus for the hurler.

MLB Betting Trends:

  • White Sox are 4-9 in their last 13 games vs. a right-handed starter.
  • White Sox are 2-5 in their last 7 overall.
  • White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game.
  • Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite.
  • Mariners are 7-3 in their last 10 games following an off day.

4* MLB Betting Prediction: Seattle -122

It all hinges on Hernandez and whether or not he can keep his cool in this one.
MLB Baseball Score Prediction: Chicago 1- Seattle 2

This will be a true pitchers duel in Seattle.
