The Mariners will miss the postseason this season as many expected. Since beginning the season 13-3 they have been abysmal. It starts with the pitching that has struggled all year. The team ranks second to last in runs allowed in the AL (768). Felix Hernandez, Yusei Kikuchi, and Wade LeBlanc have struggled in the rotation.
Seattle’s offense is led by Domingo Santana and Daniel Vogelbach. Santana has 21 homers and 69 RBIs, and Vogelbach leads Seattle with 28 homers and 70 RBIs.
On the mound for the Mariners is lefty Justus Sheffield. Sheffield is 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA in 11.1 innings this season.
The Cubs are coming off a tough 4-0 loss against the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.
The loss puts them at three games in front of Milwaukee for the second NL Wild Card spot. Chicago has the sixth best offense in the NL (664) and the third best pitching staff in the NL (594). The Cubs can surely be a threat in October due to their balance.
Javier Baez leads the Cubs offense with a .281 average, 29 homers, and 85 RBIs. Kris Bryant (26 homers), Anthony Rizzo (25 homers), and Kyle Schwarber (32 homers) have contributed in the power department for Chicago.
Chicago sends out Kyle Hendricks, who is 9-9 with a 3.47 ERA this season. In his last outing he was roughed up for six runs in 4.2 innings against the Mets.
Hendricks has terrific command as he’s only walked 29 guys in 148 innings.
