With only 6 games left in the regular season, there are still Wild Card spots up for grabs and both the A's and the Mariners have their sights set on one of those places as they head into a three-game tilt tonight in Seattle.  The home team is a game ahead of their visitors in the AL West and both still need the misfortune of other teams to seal a post-season berth.  Seattle last beat The Angels 2-1 - which was only their second loss in the last 10 games - after sweeping Oakland when they visited the Coliseum.  After being swept at home, however, the A's recovered to sweep the Astros 3-0 so momentum is on their side coming into this divisional matchup.  

Pitching matchup


Cole Irvin (10-14, 3.99 ERA) Cole Irvin will start for the A's for the 31st time this season.  Irvin has a 3.99 ERA in 2021 with a 1.31 WHIP has been good in September surrendering 28 hits through 20.1 innings for only 13 ERs.  He also has 18 strikeouts compared to only 5 walks.  Irvin played the Mariners 4 times this season pitching 16.2 innings and giving up 29 hits for 14 ERs with 10 strikeouts and 7 walks. 


Chris Flexen (13-6, 3.56 ERA) Chris Flexen will start his 30th game of the season for the Mariners.  Flexen is having his best season ERA-wise with a 3.56 and is a career 4.85 ERA pitcher.  He's already pitched 25 innings against the Athletics this season and was efficient surrendering 2 hits for 9 ERs and striking out 17 batters while walking only 6 more.  


The A's have struggled to beat the Mariners this season and were swept just a week ago in a 4-game series.  Even though they have a longer winning streak than Seattle, they're back to face a pitcher that they've also struggled against.  Seattle has been too dominant recently with only 2 arbitrary losses in the last 10 games.  Expect Seattle to take the first game of this series at home. 

PICK: Mariners run line -1.5 (+175)
