The A’s and M’s will meet on Wednesday night in the finale of their 3 game set at Safeco Field. On Tuesday night in the series opener the Athletics will have struggling Kendall Graveman match up against Nathan Karns.
Both teams have completed three game sweeps against each other earlier in the season.
Oakland has struggled since beginning the season 10-7. The A’s have lost 19 of their last 29 games. The Athletics have struggled in nearly every area, whether it’s pitching or hitting.
As a team the Athletics rank 17th in batting average (.243) and they are 27th in on base percentage (.293).
Oakland is 26th in ERA as a team (4.66). A big reason the Athletics staff has struggled is due to the struggles of ace Sonny Gray. Last season, Gray went 14-7 with a 2.73 ERA.
This season Gray has been abysmal as he has gone 3-5 with a 6.19 ERA. The 26-year-old was recently placed on the 15-day DL with a back injury.
Zach Neal is scheduled to make his first start of his career.
The 27-year-old has one appearance this season against Boston. In three innings he gave up four hits and three runs.
The Mariners are led by second baseman Robinson Cano. Cano has begun the season on a tear as he is batting .287 with 12 Home Runs and 39 RBI. That is good news considering that Cano is even better in second halves.
Nelson Cruz has played solid posting a .280 average with nine home runs and 29 RBI.
On May 3rd, Iwakuma got the win at Oakland. He went seven innings giving up only four hits and one run.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML
I expect a similar effort in his second matchup against a struggling Oakland team. While we don’t know what we’re going to get from Neal, Iwakuma has been consistent for the Mariners in past seasons.
