Afternoon baseball will be at it’s finest Wednesday when the Toronto Blue Jays face off against the Seattle Mariners in the last of a three game series.
The Blue Jays will send Aaron Sanchez to the mound while Felix Hernandez will be on the hill for the Mariners. As of press time Tuesday night the Blue Jays (83-68) moved into sole possession of the top spot in the American League wild-card standings.
The Seattle Mariners are one of the only teams chasing after Baltimore and Toronto for a Wild Card position, but made things a little more difficult for themselves after dropping the opener on Monday and another tonight.
The Mariners pitching hasn’t allowed more than three runs in 10 out of their last 11 games and need to keep the number climbing if they want to make the postseason this year.
Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager have been bringing the big boy sticks to the plate all season long and have been the glue of the Seattle offense this year.
The Mariners currently rank 8th in the Majors in scoring, averaging 4.73 runs per game. They will look to make things easy on Wednesday night for Felix Hernandez who will be looking for his 12th win of the season.
He will be taking a 3.79 ERA into his 22 start of the season.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto was able to hand the Mariners a loss in the opener Monday, but still have won only five of their last 14.
On Tuesday night Toronto pitcher J.A. Happ became baseball’s second 20-game winner as the Blue Jays used an eight-run fourth inning to blow out the Mariners 10-2.
Before these last two games the Jays hadn’t been able to get anything going out of the batter’s box and were only averaging 3.21 runs per game.
It’s been a big surprise when you take a glance at some of the names they have up and down their lineup. To make matters even worse, the pitching of the Blue Jays has also been in the dumps.
The Blue Jays were still holding a 2.5 game lead over the Detroit Tigers for the second American League Wild Card spot as of Tuesday morning, but if they want to make the postseason and have any shot of making a deep run, they need to pull things together as quickly as possible.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Both of these pitchers have been struggling recently and will need help from their offense. The Mariners can’t afford to lose again if they want to keep their postseason hopes alive.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML and game total over 8
While I wouldn’t consider it a slug fest, I think the bats will come alive for both of these teams Wednesday afternoon. Neither pitcher can really be depended on, but I think Seattle will do what needs to be done in order to come away with the win.
