: Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners Preview
1. The Red Sox have won 3 of their last 4 games.
2. The Mariners had their 4-game winning streak snapped in their last game.
3. The Mariners are 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Red Sox.
This season the Mariners are 9-8 at home and the Red Sox are 16-18 on the road.
In their last games the Red Sox beat the Oakland A’s 2-0 and the Mariners lost to the San Diego Padres 4-2.
After a tough stretch the Red Sox have won 3 of their last 4 games, but they have lost 6 of their last 10 games and sit in 4th place in the AL East 4.5 games back of the Yankees.
The Mariners were picked by many to win the AL West, but they are 3 games under .500 and in 3rd place in the AL West 5.5 games back of the Houston Astros. While Seattle only ranks 23rd in the Majors in runs scored they scored 26 total runs in their 4-game winning streak before their loss to the Padres yesterday.
While the Mariners’ offense has had issues this season Nelson Cruz is doing his part, as he ranks 1st in the Majors in HR, 1st in the AL in batting average, and 1st in the AL in RBI.
Joe Kelly has not won since his first start of the season and since that time he has an ERA of 7.67 in his last 5 starts. However, in his last start against the Mariners last season he had 5 shutout innings only giving up 1 hit in a 5-3 Red Sox win.
The Red Sox are 4-1 in Kelly’s last 5 starts as a road underdog.
Roenis Elias has been decent this season giving up 8 earned runs in his 3 starts, but he has not got much support from the offense, as in those starts the Mariners scored 4 runs every time.
The Mariners are 0-4 in Elias’ last 4 home starts.
The Red Sox have a decent offense ranking 14th in runs scored, but their pitching has been rocked all season and they only rank 29th in the Majors in team ERA. Still, their staff has settled down as of late only giving up 7 runs in winning 3 of 4 games.
