This AL matchup includes two teams that started off on top of their divisions but have since been caught.
The Boston Red Sox were on top of the AL East for much of the season, but currently sit
a game back in the AL East.
The Seattle Mariners started off very hot this season, but they now have sat around .500 for much of this second half.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Redsox lineup has been strong for most of this season. They have been led by all-star shortstop Xander Bogaerts on the season.
Bogaerts is hitting a team high .326 with 25 doubles and 67 RBIs. David Ortiz is having a monster last season in the MLB.
Ortiz is hitting .316 with team high 25 home runs and 85 RBIs. Mookie Betts is hitting .306 with 56 extra base hits and has driven in 70 runs this season.
The Red Sox look to step up this series and look to get back in first place in the East.
The Red Sox have Rick Porcello on the mound Wednesday and he has been their best pitcher for most of this season. Porcello is currently 14-2 on the year with a 3.47 E.R.A and 111 strikeouts.
He last started in a win in Los Angeles against the Angels. Porcello pitched a complete game where he gave up only 2 earned runs on 5 hits.
He did not record a walk and struck out 3 in the win. Porcello will look to continue this winning streak he has going.
The Seattle Mariners lineup has been impressive for most of this season. They are led by veteran Robinson Cano. Cano is hitting .301 on the season with 49 extra base hits and has knocked in 65 runs on the season.
Nelson Cruz leads the team in home runs with 26 and RBIs with 68 while hitting .285 on the season. Kyle Seager has been playing very well this season.
Seager has hit 28 doubles on the year and is right behind Cruz with 67 runs batted in. This lineup will have their hands full with the red hot Porcello on the bump.
The Mariners have Hisashi Iwakuma on the bump against the Sox. Iwakuma is currently 11-7 on the season with a 4.21 E.R.A. and 96 strikeouts.
He got knocked around in his last start against the Chicago Cubs and it led to an early exit. Iwakuma made it only 3 innings against the Cubs where he gave up 5 earned runs on 8 hits.
He looks to make a quick bounce back in this upcoming start against the Red Sox.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
This game would’ve been a lot better of a matchup 2 months ago when the M’s were playing at a very high level. Here in August do not look for the Mariners to make much of a battle with Porcello on the mound.
I look for the Red Sox to make easy work of Iwakuma.
