Mariners Have Been Playing Up To Their Competition

The Seattle Mariners find themselves making a move in the AL West with wins in 10 of their past 14 games. Maybe the most impressive of that stretch has been the Mariners going 6-2 in that span against teams with winning records. The M’s try and keep the ball rolling when they open a four-game set with the Minnesota Twins Monday.

SHARK BITES
  • Nelson Cruz is slashing .440/.517/.800 through his first 8 games in June.
  • The Mariners are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games on the road against the Twins.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Mariners' last 10 games when opening a series.

Yovani Gallardo is in the midst of the worst season of his career with the 31-year old posting career highs in ERA and WHIP through 12 starts. Gallardo has been hard to watch recently, as the righty has a 10.42 ERA while allowing opponents to hit .364 across his past four starts. The Mariners and Twins faced off in Gallardo’s most recent start, an outing that saw him go 7.0 innings while giving up six hits and five runs.

Opposing Gallardo in that start, as well as Monday, was youngster Adalberto Mejia. The left-hander went 5.0 innings and allowed three runs, which continued his stretch of solid play. Since being called up from Triple=A Rochester in the middle of May, Mejia has a 3.52 ERA while holding opponents to a .222 batting average.
