The Orioles take on the Mariners at Safeco Field in the series opener of a 4 game series. The Orioles have been red hot, they’ve won 6 games in a row and lead the AL East.
The Mariners were struggling but look to have started turning things around again, winning 3 of their last 4 games.
Gausman is on the mound for the Orioles who is just 1-5 with a 3.93 era and 1.27 whip. Walker is pitching for the Mariners and is 3-6 with a 3.45 era and 1.16 whip.
The Orioles are one of the most dangerous offensive teams in the league and average 5.1 runs per game.
They hit for average at .272 and they hit for power, leading the way in the MLB with 123 long balls. In their last 7 games, they’ve scored 56 runs. That is 8 runs per game and they’ve had streaks like this all season long.
Pitching wise, they are just in the middle of the pack in the MLB but it’s usually enough for them to hit their way to victory.
Gausman has just one victory but his 3.93 era is very respectable on this team because they are almost guaranteed to score more than 4 runs every game.
In his last start he shutout the Rays over 7.2 innings.
He does typically struggle against high offensively powered teams, giving up 4 against the Rangers and 6 against the Red Sox in his 2 starts prior to the Rays.
Seattle is no exception, as this may prove to be a tough one for Gausman.
The Mariners have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games, so their offense looks to be coming around again after struggling for quite some time.
There is little doubt about how powerful this offensive can be and they match up well against the Orioles offense. The Mariners average 4.9 runs per game, which is just 0.2 shy of the Orioles, they are also just shy of the Orioles in team batting average and home runs.
The Orioles may have the slight offensive edge, but the Mariners have the slight pitching edge.
They allow just 4.3 runs per game which is 0.2 better than the Orioles. Walker with a 3.45 era slightly edges out Gausman, although, Walker has been wildly inconsistent.
In 2 of his last 3 outings, he’s thrown shutout ball against the Red Sox and the Indians, but in his last 6 of 8 outings, the shutouts aside, he’s given up either 4, 5 or 6 runs.
He gave up 4 against the Orioles over 5 innings on May 18th.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Offensively, the Orioles have a slight edge but both teams are extremely dangerous any given inning.
Pitching wise, the matchup is fairly even and just depends who shows up more prepared this game.
Given the Orioles have just been finding ways to win more often than the Mariners and they are scoring a ridiculous 8 runs per game their last 7 games, we’ll have to go with the hotter bats.

This one looks like it will be an offensively battle until the finish, the line for totals will likely be high but it’ll still likely go over if both pitchers don’t have one of their rare excellent outings.
