This is an AL West match up of a couple teams heading in different directions, as the Mariners have won 4 in a row and the Athletics have dropped 4 straight.
The Mariners are in first place in the AL West and have a 6.5 game lead over 4th place Oakland.
The Athletics have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Mariners in Seattle.
In their last games the Athletics lost to the New York Yankees 5-4 and the Mariners completed their 3-game sweep over the Cincinnati Reds with a 5-4 win.
The Athletics have had issues at the plate and on the mound this season only ranking 22nd in runs scored and 26th in team ERA.
One of the main reasons the Athletics are not bigger road underdogs is that a hot Rich Hill (6-3 2.54 ERA) Oakland has won his last 3 outings.
In his last start he only gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings of work in a 8-1 win over the Texas Rangers.
The Athletics have won Hill’s last 5 road starts.
Earlier this season Hill faced the Mariners and went 6 innings fanning 10 and giving up 1 earned run in a 6-1 Athletics win.
Hill has a solid ERA of 1.96 in his last 6 starts after having an ERA of 4.15 in his first 3 starts of the season.
The Athletics are 11-11 on the road this season as opposed to 8-15 at home.
The Mariners rank 8th in the Majors in runs scored and 5th in team ERA. They have combined for 24 runs in their 4-game winning streak.
Taijuan Walker (2-3 2.95 ERA) goes for the Mariners tonight and he was not very sharp in his last start going 5 innings and giving up 3 earned runs in a 5-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. The Mariners have lost 3 of his last 4 starts.
Walker got off to a solid start to the season with an ERA of 1.44 in his first 4 starts, but in the 4 starts since he has an ERA of 5.09 and is 0-3.
Walker faced the Athletics earlier this season and while he did not have a bad outing going 6 innings and giving up 6 runs he did not get much support in a 3-2 Oakland win.
The Mariners are 7-3 in Walker’s last 10 home starts.
This season the Mariners are only 8-10 at home and in winning 4 straight all of those games were on the road.
