Preview

The Seattle Mariners and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet for the first and only time on this season to play a 3-game of the series at the Seattle-Alameda County Coliseum. Both teams lost their last series.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies get to this game with a 12-16 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.36 runs per game while allowing 4.36 runs. Kyle Schwarber leads the team with 7 home runs and 16 RBI. Nick Castellanos is batting for .308 avg.

Aaron Nola pitched seven sharp innings allowing only 1 run in 3 hits striking out 7 batters.

Probable Pitcher: 

Ranger Suarez (2-1, 4.63 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Phillies. Suarez took the loss Tuesday against the Rangers after giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits with three strikeouts and two walks across five innings.

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get here with a 13-16 record and have lost 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.07 runs per game and allowing 4 runs. JP Crawford is batting for .340 AVG. Ty France leads with 22 RBI and 5 home runs.

Logan Gilbert is leading with 4 wins for the Mariners and pitching for 0.64 ERA and 27 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Chris Flexen (1-4, 3.10 ERA)

Flexen will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mariners. Flexen got the loss during Tuesday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Astros, allowing one run on two hits and three walks with two strikeouts in five innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Philadelphia are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.

Philadelphia are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games on the road.

Seattle are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Seattle's last 5 games against Philadelphia.

Prediction

Two struggling teams will face here, the Phillies have been bad on the road so far as they have won only 3 of 10 games away from home. The Mariners are 8-5 at home this season but have lost 3 of their last 4 in Seattle. If we look at the pitching matchup, Suarez has allowed 3 runs in his each of the last 2 starts while Flexen allowed 1 run in 2 of his last 3 starts. The Mariners should take care of business at home and beat the Phillies in the 1st of the series.
