The Seattle Mariners have actually been very competitive this year, but they will need to throw everything at the San Diego Padres, as they represent an awfully tough matchup here on Friday.
The Mariners are only 3-8 in their last 11, so they are starting to come back to Earth a bit, and that really shows just how good the start of their season was, as they were able to go 3-8 and only be 2 games back of the .500 mark.
The one worrying part for the Seattle Mariners is that they are coming off getting swept by the Detroit Tigers who are not very good at all and if they were unable to beat the Tigers once in 3 games, it is tough to see them getting a series win in this spot against the San Diego Padres.
Chris Flexen is coming off of a nice start last time out going nearly 6 innings and only allowing 1 run which then improved his overall season stats to 3.46 in terms of ERA and a 4-1 record. Flexen has been decent from an overall standpoint, but he has not been a big strikeout guy not being able to generate much in terms of a swinging strike rate, so it will be interesting to see how he does against a team with a ton of power like the Padres.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have well and truly arrived this year going 9-1 in their last 10 years and they are beginning to look more and more like a real contender to go deep in this year’s playoffs, as they have struck a nice balance between hitting and pitching.
Although this batting lineup gets a ton of accolades, the main reason the Padres are 10 games above .500 at this time is the fact that their pitching staff is absolutely rolling allowing a league low .205 batting average to opposition hitters.
The Padres will go with Chris Paddack in this spot who has pretty average season statistics, but he has been much better as of late even though he has not been going very deep into games, so we will see how long the leash is here against the Mariners.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Padres are obviously the better team here and I feel like this is a good spot to lay the run and a half, as I think they will be able to pull away here especially when we get into both of these team’s bullpens.
It seems tough to imagine the Mariners breaking out of their slump here too, as they have not been facing the best competition and have not looked good in a lot of those spots, so this seems like a great opportunity for the Padres to pick up yet another win.
