The Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays will play a 4 -game series at the Seattle-Alameda County Coliseum. The Rays won the 2nd of the series 10-7. In their last series, Rays swept the Athletics and the Mariners got swept by the Astros.

Probable Pitcher:

Shane McClanahan (1-2, 3.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rays in the 1st game of the series. McClanahan took the loss Saturday as the Rays fell 9-1 to the Twins, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out 11. Last time he face the Mariners he allowed only 1 run across 6 innings pitched striking out 8.

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

Probable Pitcher:  Robbie Ray (2-2, 4.15 ERA)

Ray will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mariners. Ray was charged with the loss against the Marlins on Saturday, allowing three earned runs on four hits and four walks across five innings while recording eight strikeouts. In his last 3 starts against the Rays he has a 1.97 ERA and 29 strikeouts.


Tampa Bay are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against Seattle.

Tampa Bay are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

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

Seattle are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games when playing at home against Tampa Bay.


The Rays have won 7 of their last 10 games and 6 of their 9 games on the road so far this season but they have struggled against the Mariners they have lost 13 of their last 16 games agianst them. Robbie Ray is coming from a loss but he has good numbers and high strikeout rate against the Rays. Seattle have lost only 2 games at home this season so I think they can win this game.
