The Seattle Mariners are 4-5 over their last nine games. They have won two in a row. Those wins coming against the Baltimore Orioles at home. Tonight, the Mariners visit the Tampa Bay Rays.
Seattle is 1.5 games back of the final wildcard spot in the AL.
Erasmo Ramirez (4-4, 4.73 ERA) will take the rock for the Mariners. In his only start against the Rays this season, Ramirez was beat up.
He pitched 4.2 innings, allowing seven hits, four runs (all earned), one home runs and five strikeouts.
He is 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA in that start.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays keep grinding it out. Tampa Bay is two games under .500, but still alive in the playoff hunt. The Rays are 2.5 games out of the last spot in the AL for the last wildcard spot.
If they want to make the playoffs, the Rays need to be more consistent at winning.
Tampa Bay starts Austin Pruitt (6-3, 5.07 ERA). Pruitt will be making his sixth start of the season, and second appearance against the Mariners in 2017.
He pitched 1.1 innings, allowing 4 hits, three runs (all earned) and one strikeout. The Mariners hit .500 against him for the inning in that start.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Austin Pruitt pitched well in his last home start opposing Corey Kluber. Although he did take the loss, he looked poised on the mound.
I can’t trust this Seattle team on the road, and the bullpen is suspect in late game situations. Take the Rays at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over the Number
I expect both team to score runs. Enough to cover the over. Take the over when these teams face off tonight.
