San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants have been steadily improving over the last few seasons. In 2020, the Giants finished 29-31 and just barely missed out on the playoffs.
The Giants went through a bit of a makeover in the off-season, particularly with the pitching staff. Drew Smyly, Trevor Cahill, Jeff Samardzija and Tyson Ross are all out of the fold, but the Giants made up for it with the signings of Aaron Sanchez, Anthony DeSclafani and Alex Wood.
Hitting wise, the Giants offense was efficient last season. San Francisco averaged 5 runs a game, good for eighth in the league. As a team, they posted 290 RBI’s as well as 532 hits last season, while their team batting average sat at .263.
Kevin Gausman toes the slab for the Giants. He went 3-3 with a 3.62 ERA and 79 strikeouts last season. Gausman has done well against Seattle, going1-2 with a 2.88 ERA and 30 strikeouts against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners ended last season 27-33, marking another year in which they missed out on the playoffs. The Mariners look to avoid their playoff drought reaching their two decades as they once again try to rebuild.
The Mariners need to shore up their pitching rotation and are expected to give up a lot of runs in 2021. Marco Gonzales has been the one positive for this team on the mound. He emerged as one of the top pitchers in baseball after going 7-2 with a 3.10 ERA and 64 strikeouts last season.
The Mariners have James Paxton, Kendall Graveman and Yusei Kakuchi to surround Gonzales in the rotation. The Mariners ranked 14th last year in runs allowed.
Seattle hit just .226 as a team last year with an on-base percentage of .309. The Mariners ranked 23rd with 4.23 runs a game last year and will need more production from players like Kyle Lewis, JP Crawford and Kyle Seager.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Marco Gonzales should do enough in this spot to get Seattle over the hump. Expect a low-scoring affair in this game too and a good performance between two good starting pitchers. Gonzales was undefeated at home last year and that trend continues to start 2021.
