The Seattle Mariners are inching closer to a postseason spot, and a strong finish to their seven-game road trip would go a long way to boosting those chances. Seattle concludes its four-game series with the lowly Los Angeles Angels Thursday.
- The Angels are 1-12 SU and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games.
- The Mariners are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against teams with losing records.
- The Mariners are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Angels.
Hisashi Iwakuma and Matt Shoemaker are the probable starters. Iwakuma (14-7, 3.84 ERA) has been fantastic this month, winning all three of his starts to improve to 8-1 since losing at Detroit on June 22. Iwakuma is 8-3 with a 2.86 ERA in 16 career games against the Angels in his career.
Shoemaker (6-13, 4.22) suffered his second straight loss and fourth in five starts last Saturday, when he gave up five runs and 12 hits in six innings at Cleveland. Shoemaker is 3-4 with a 3.91 ERA in 10 career outings against the M’s.
The UNDER is trending when the Mariners travel to the Golden State. In the Mariners’ last 13 road games against the Halos, the UNDER is 10-3.
