LeBlanc pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his third win of the season in a 1-0 victory over Boston. He went 7.2 scoreless-innings giving up just two hits and striking out nine and walking none.
In 14 appearances this season, LeBlanc owns a solid strikeout (7.59 K/9) to walk (2.04 BB/9) rate, while he has done an okay job containing the long ball (1.17 HR/9). He does own a stellar 88.2% LOB%, but he won’t be able to sustain that once his .266 BABIP regresses, and we should see his 2.63 ERA fall towards his 3.82 ERA.
Seattle has been going through a little funk in the past week as they could only win two of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .219/.273/.323 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 18 RBI.
Boston Red Sox
Wright also pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start, but was out dueled by LeBlanc as he picked up his first loss of the season in a 1-0 loss to Seattle. He went seven innings giving up five hits and one earned run while he struck out four and walked two.
In nine appearances for the 33 year old knuckleballer, Wright owns a 7.12 K/9, 4.42 BB/9, 0.25 HR/9, 90.4% LOB%, and a 1.23 ERA and 3.42 FIP. Of course his LOB% and ERA are unsustainable and bound to take a hit once his very fortunate .202 BABIP begins to regress towards his mean.
Boston has been playing losing baseball in the past week as they could only win two of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .222/.290/.330 to go with 10 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Boston edges out Seattle at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9.5 Runs
There is going to be familiarity between these lineups and the opposing pitchers as they faced them a week ago, so LeBlanc is going to have his hands full against this Boston lineup that owns an .839 OPS at home, except they struggle against lefties owning a .673 OPS. Seattle should have familiarity with Wright, except knuckle balls are completely random and Wright has been in solid form so I expect a solid performance at home for him. This won’t be another 1-0 outcome, but the total should stay under the threshold.
