When you are trying to chase down the final Wild Card spot like the Seattle Mariners are, there’s nothing like a home series against the Arizona Diamondbacks to give you a bit of a leg up.
The Mariners will send Marco Gonzales to the hill for this one and Arizona will answer with Madison Bumgarner.
45 wins are all the Arizona Diamondbacks have been able to muster as the season now enters the second week of September. Currently, the D-Backs are in a futile race with the Baltimore Orioles to see who can finish with the worst record in baseball.
If you are looking for any reason to follow Arizona at the moment, Josh Rojas is perhaps one. In his first full big-league season, Rojas currently has a 1.5 WAR in 120 games. Not bad for a guy selected in the 26th round.
The D-Backs currently have a 5.21 ERA. That’s second-worst in baseball behind, you guessed it, the Baltimore Orioles. Offensively, they aren’t quite as terrible. They rank 8th last in baseball in total runs scored.
Friday’s starter Madison Bumgarner can shoulder some of the blame for the Diamondbacks pitching problems this year. His ERA is currently 4.52, a far cry from his career average of 3.28. The D-Backs have also dropped the last 3 he’s pitched and the last 4 of 6. He’s dealt with some shoulder problems this year and simply hasn’t delivered since leaving San Francisco.
He only pitched 41 innings in the shortened season last year and had an ERA over 6. After a 7-inning no-hitter in the spring, he has not been himself this season either. He certainly hasn’t been pitching like a guy the D-Backs spent $85 million over 5 years for.
The Seattle Mariners still have a chance for the second wild-card spot in the American League.
It doesn’t hurt that one of the teams they are chasing, the New York Yankees, have looked terrible to start September. As of this writing, the Mariners sit 2.5 games back of the Yankees for the final Wild Card, 3.0 back of the Red Sox for the first wild card, and 1 game back of Toronto, who is also chasing Boston and New York for a wild card birth. Just .5 games behind them is Oakland, as the wild card race in the AL heats up.
The Mariners’ offense has only been slightly better than Arizona’s this year. They sit at 9th worst in the league in terms of total runs scored. Their 4.31 team ERA is in the middle of the pack, 15th in baseball.
Working in the Mariners’ favor on Friday night will be that they are sending Marco Gonzales to the hill. Seattle has won 5 straight with him on the mound.. They’ve also won 8 of the last 10 that Gonzales has pitched.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
MLB Betting Prediction: At only a -167 favorite, I like the Mariners in this one. They’ve won 7 of their last 10 and are going to be going all in to make a run. For the Diamondbacks, this game is really all about Madison Bumgarner.
He faced the Mariners last Friday and didn’t look great, giving up 5 runs in 6 innings.
He’s given up at least 4 in his last 3 outings and seems to be slipping late in the season, giving the Mariners even more of an edge in this one.
