Oakland will be hoping to close the gap between itself and Houston in the American League West when it travels to Seattle on Thursday night for a 4 game weekend series.
The Athletics are coming off a pair of wins over Los Angeles before having the day off on Wednesday while Seattle split a 2 game set in Colorado.
Oakland had five home games to open the second half of the season, going 3-2 in those 5 games. Oakland is now embarking on a 10-game road trip that concludes in Anaheim next weekend.
The Athletics are currently 3 games back of Houston in the AL West. They are currently in the lead of the 2nd wild spot.
First baseman Matt Olson has been the key producer for this Athletics offense. He leads the way with 96 hits and a .291 batting average. He has also hit a team-high 25 home runs and driven in 63 runs.
The Mariners took 2 out of 3 at Los Angeles last weekend before picking up a 6-4 win at Colorado on Tuesday.
The Mariners enter Thursday’s contest 3rd in the AL West race, 6.5 games behind the Houston Astros for the division lead. In the wild card race, Seattle is only 3.5 games behind Oakland for the second wild card spot.
The Mariners are 30th in MLB, batting just .216 as a team but have excelled in some other areas offensively. The teams’ power and speed have been above average, ranking 12th with 109 home runs and 13th with 40 stolen bases.
Left-hander Yusei Kikuchi was selected as a member of the 2021 American League All-Star team. He was the lone Mariner selected and will be the first starting pitcher sent to represent the club at the All-Star game since Felix Hernandez in 2015.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Oakland should be well-rested after playing at home for five straight games and then having an off day on Wednesday. Seattle has played on the road for its first five games to open the second half of the season, so it will return home with some fatigue.
Both of these starters have been solid, but Oakland has the more dangerous offense.
Take Oakland at good value in the opener.
