This afternoon matchup features the AL West leader, Seattle vs the AL East leader, Baltimore. Both have had a successful start to the season. Karns goes for Seattle with a 3.51 era and is 3-1. Wilson goes to Baltimore who’s 2-1 with a 2.93 era.
This is looking to be a high scoring game considering the offensive strength of both teams.
The Mariners won the series opener in convincing fashion 10-0.
They’ve been hitting well, with 4.6 runs per game this season ranking them 7th in the MLB. They also have 52 home runs ranking them 5th in the MLB. Cano is in the heart of this offence and as always, is producing efficiently.
He has a .302 batting average, 12 home runs and 36 rbi’s this season.
Cruz in the 4 slot has hit well too, with a .282 batting average and 8 home runs. I would expect them to put up a decent amount of runs against Wilson.
Karns has been pretty stable this season and has given up just 7 runs in his last 25.2 innings pitched.
This definitely works in Seattles favour but the Orioles offence is very dangerous and can definitely get to Karns.
He gave up 6 hits and 3 walks against the Angels in his last start which makes me believe Orioles can certainly break him if the Angels could muster up that much offence.
The Orioles have lost 2 straight and did not score against Seattle in game 1 of this series. However, prior to this gams, their bats were hot and I would expect this to continue.
They’ve put up 52 runs in their last 9 games, that’s almost 6 runs per game! They also average 4.6 runs per game this season overall and are first in the league with 55 long balls. Machado has cooled down a bit but is still hitting .327 with 11 HR, he won’t stay cold very long.
Chris Davis is also on fire right now, taking his batting average from .200 to .256 in 7 games.
Wilson has been okay so far this season and against the Mariners offence, I would expect them to challenge Wilson.
An era of 2.93 may look decent but he’s only began pitching past 4.2 innings and gave up 2-3 runs in each outing.
He looks to be coming around though, giving up just 2 in 7 innings against the woeful twins. However, the twins aren’t exactly a challenge.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Both teams can certainly put up a lot of runs and I would expect no difference in this game. Since the offence favours Baltimore in terms of batting average and slugging percentage. I give the edge to Baltimore in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles ML
Although the pitching going is decent, the hitting is so powerful on both sides that I can’t imagine both pitching shutting down both offences. Both teams will get their fair share of runs in this one, take the over if the line is 7.5.
