The A’s have quietly put together a very solid run, winning 6 straight to at least try to keep pace with the equally red hot Astros in the West. Oakland begins a very winnable 3-game series at home vs. Seattle on Friday.
The Mariners haven’t fared so hot lately, losing 6 of their last 7 including a sweep by the Rangers during the past week. Seattle did get a day off Thursday, but can they regroup and find some offense in that span?
Seattle does have the #7 ranked team in baseball in runs/game and is 8th in OPS, but they’ve managed just 4 total runs in the last two games. The Mariners could see some success Friday vs. an Oakland pitcher making just his 3rd start of the season.
Wade Leblanc is on the mound in the series opener for Seattle. The lefty was rocked in his first start back from the IL, giving up 7ER in just 2.1 IP last time out vs. the Twins. Leblanc did pitch well vs. Oakland last year though, not allowing a run over 11IP.
The A’s are on a roll, rattling off six straight wins with sweeps over Detroit and Cleveland with a suspended game vs. Detroit mixed in there. Even more impressive, each of those wins were on the road as Oakland returns home for the first time in 11 days on Friday.
The Oakland offense has scored at least 4 runs in 7 straight games which is impressive for a unit that is just 15 in scoring on the year. The A’s as a team are a modest 15 – 57 (.263) as a team vs. Seattle starter Leblanc.
It’s Daniel Mengden getting the start for Oakland for just the 3rd time this year. After a rough debut, he buckled down last game with just a single ER allowed over 7IP vs. the Tigers.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
