This Interleague matchup includes two teams that were on top of their conferences early in the year, since has cooled off a bit.
The Seattle Mariners were red hot in the beginning, but now sit 6.5 games back behind the Texas Rangers in the AL West.
The Cubs were far ahead of the competition but now sit 6.5 games ahead of the division runner up.
The Seattle Mariners lineup has been very strong at the top this season. Robinson Cano is hitting .301 on the season with 47 extra base hits and 64 RBIs.
Kyle Seager leads the Mariners in RBIs with 67; he is also hitting .287 on the season with 28 doubles. Nelson Cruz leads the team in home runs with 25 while hitting .285 and knocking in 66 runs this season.
The Mariners will not know which Jake Arrieta they’ll see in this one, but they’ll be ready for the best.
The Mariners have Wade Miley on the bump Saturday and he has been struggling lately, losing his last 6 starts. Miley is currently 6-8 on the season with a 5.23 E.R.A. and 73 strikeouts.
In his last start he received a loss in Toronto against the Blue Jays.
He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits.
Miley also struck out 4 and walked 2 in the loss. He looks to bounce back from his past month of losses.
The Chicago Cubs lineup has been very good for most of this season. They are led by MVP candidate Kris Bryant.
Bryant is hitting .283 with 26 home runs and 67 RBIs. Anthony Rizzo is hitting for the best average of .287 to go along with 53 extra base hits and 76 runs batted in.
Addison Russell, coming off an all-star appearance, is hitting .248 on the season with 30 extra base hits and 61 RBIs. The Cubs look to knock Wade Miley around early in this one.
The Cubs have Jake Arrieta on the mound Saturday, who has been struggling this past month after starting off very hot. Arrieta is currently 12-4 on the season with a 2.76 E.R.A. and 135 strikeouts.
He last received a no decision in the crosstown rivalry against the Chicago White Sox. Arrieta pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 4 earned runs on 5 hits.
He also struck out 6 batters and walked 2 in the no decision. Arrieta looks to bounce back after the past month of losses.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
This one would’ve been a lot better of a game back in May when both of these teams were on fire. I look for the Cubs to take this one at home on Saturday.
I can’t see Jake Arrieta losing 5 straight starts; I look for him to get back to the old ways finally. I also look for Miley to struggling in this one like he has for a while.
The Cubs lineup is very strong and I don’t think Miley will be able to put up much of a fight.
