It’s the opening game of a three-game series on the diamond in northern California between a pair of AL West rivals. The Seattle Mariners are on the road as they open up a three-game series with the Oakland A’s Monday night.
Seattle continues their road trip and enter this series after being swept in 3 games by San Diego. They were outscored in an embarrassing 31-7 margin.
Oakland enters after winning 2 of 3 games in LA against the Angels. They managed a 19-12 positive scoring margin in the series.
Last season, the A’s won six of the 10 meetings between the teams.
The Seattle Mariners are on a six-game losing streak, as they got swept by the Detroit Tigers at home and the San Diego Padres on the road in a 31-7 margin through those 3 games.
The Mariners enter Monday third in the AL West, 6.5 games behind the A’s for the division lead.
After a 3-1 victory in the Indians series, the Mariners have scored just three runs through three contests against one of the worst teams in the league while yielding 15 runs to the Tigers in a return.
The Mariners have the lowest OPS in the majors in May (.639) while batting a miserable .198 which is also the worst in baseball this month.
The Oakland Athletics enter this series after winning 2 of the 3 over another AL West opponent, the LA Angels.
The A’s entered Sunday holding a 1.5-game advantage on the Astros in the AL West race as they look to extend that advantage.
Oakland is 27th in batting average with .222, 17th in runs scored with 186, and 3rd in home runs with 59, while they are 19th with 4.28 ERA.
Matt Olson and Mark Canha have been Oakland’s most valuable players on offense so far. Olson leads the team in batting average (.261), home runs (10), and RBI (26), while Canha is the best in hits (40) and on-base percentage (.373).

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Seattle has had major issues at the plate this season and that’s something that has hampered them on the year. The Mariners have to find a way to improve their anemic .198 team batting average.
Oakland is playing well and they are leading the AL West. Montas pitched decently in his last start before the Astros tagged the A’s bullpen in a one-sided loss.
Seattle just hasn’t produced at the plate and that showed after managing only 7 runs in their last series. Take Oakland at home.
