The Mariners will look to continue their winning streak when they head to Tampa to play the Rays at Tropicana Field. When we have a look at why they have had such a poor season it can mostly be put down to the pitching and fielding. The Mariners currently lead the entire league in errors with 111. They also rank 26th in ERA, 21st in WHIP and 28th in K’s on the pitching side of things.
The Mariners have had some bright spots this season like the power hitting they have displayed (201 home runs, ranking 6th). Seattle, however, might be in a tough spot here with no pitcher decided on and the guy pitching on the other side being in excellent form.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays will need to continue their winning ways (7-3, last 10) if they want to have a chance of catching the Yankees in the AL East (10 games back). Other then that they now need to worry about holding onto their Wild Card spot as the Athletics are hot on their heels currently sitting only 1 game back. All the pressure will be on the home side here as they are expected to get a series win here against a weaker Mariners side.
The Rays will hand the ball to Charlie Morton (13-5, 2.77 ERA) who has been having a great season. He has also been awesome as of late conceding only 6 earned runs and striking out 29 in his last three outings. The tall righty will be looking to buck the trend against the Mariners, who he has conceded a .284 average against over 116 batters faced.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Rays are overall the far better team with what is likely to be an advantageous pitching matchup. On the other hand the Rays are likely to be heavy favorites in this spot so I am going to look to the runline for some value as they shouldn’t have much trouble covering the 1.5 runs.
