It is the opening contest of a four-game set when the Tampa Bay Rays travel cross country to take on the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Shed Long Jr. hit a tying double in the bottom of the ninth inning and pinch-hitter Kyle Seager singled home the winning run to rally the Seattle Mariners past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Thursday night.
Yusei Kikuchi threw 4-hit ball over 7 innings, Seattle batted around during a 4-run first inning and the Mariners beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Friday night.
J.P. Crawford hit a grand slam and scored the winning run on Mitch Haniger’s 10th-inning single to lift the Seattle Mariners over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Saturday night.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays lost their last 2 games against the Chicago White Sox and lost their best record in baseball mantle in the process. Chicago overtook Tampa atop the American League so I expect the Rays to lock back in this series.
The Rays are led by DH Austin Meadows with 15 homers and 50 runs driven in. Brandon Lowe has 12 homers and 30 runs driven in, but he is hitting just .200 with 46 hits in 230 at bats.
The Rays will send out left-handed pitcher Shane McClanahan to wrap up the series on Sunday. He’s throwing a 4.42 ERA with a 2-2 record on the season. Not only could he get the Rays a win, but he could pitch himself to a winning record.
The Mariners have been a very middle of the road team this season. Seattle has split their last 10 games overall and sit squarely in the middle of the AL West, but 9 games back from the Athletics for first place.
Seattle is led by Mitch Haniger with 16 home runs and 40 RBI’s. Kyle Seager is second on the team with 13 home runs and 40 RBI’s.
The Mariners will send out Marco Gonzales Sunday, looking to complete the series sweep. The 29-year-old lefty has struggled this season, with a 1-4 record and throwing just a 5.44 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 8 appearances.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Mariners have surprisingly won the first 3 games of this series against a quality Tampa Bay team. The Seattle offense has finally come alive and added some much needed run support that wasn’t being seen enough before.
On top of the pitching edge in this matchup I just don’t see the Rays being swept. They’ve been one of the better road teams on the year and have had some close calls with this Mariners team.
Take Tampa to win the finale.
