Mariners Have Been Opening Series With Authority

Another season of relative obscurity is unraveling for the 24-51 Phillies but the overarching trend for the basement club has been potential. One of Philadelphia’s bright lights in that department is the 24-year-old Aaron Nola (4-5, 4.32 ERA), who will take the hill in interleague action against the .500 Mariners tonight.

SHARK BITES
  • The Mariners are 7-1 SU and on the runline in their last 8 games when opening a series.
  • The Phillies are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of the Phillies' last 10 games on the West Coast.

Although he’s been a little inconsistent and injury-prone through his three seasons in the bigs, Nola is a serious talent and that was no more evident than in his last start when the LSU product limited the Cardinals to four hits and one run through 7.1 innings of work while fanning a season-high eight batters. He’ll look to keep the ball rolling this evening against James Paxton (5-2, 3.39 ERA) and a streaky Mariners side.

After looking like a potential Cy Young candidate through the first two months, Paxton has fallen back to earth, raising his ERA from 1.26 to 3.39 in just four starts. The Canadian hurler gave up a home run and five or more hits in every one of those appearances but he’ll have the pleasure of facing the second-worst offense in the National League on Tuesday night.

Additionally, the Phillies have an abysmal 1-8 SU record during interleague play this season while the Mariners have an 8-4 SU record when facing a team from the other league.
