Mariners Have Been Terrible On The Road

The Seattle Mariners are on the verge of a 10-game road losing streak when they take on the Kansas City Royals Thursday. The Mariners have been outscored 48-28 over their past nine road games, though five of those losses came by just one run.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 3-0 in the past three games between the Mariners and Royals.
  • The Royals are 7-3 in their past 10 games that Danny Duffy starts.
  • Robinson Cano is batting .421 during his current five-game hitting streak.

Since joining the rotation to replace Felix Hernandez, James Paxton has been rather pedestrian. The lefty has a 4.24 ERA while allowing opponents to bat .326 in his seven starts this season. Paxton has been solid in his limited experience against the Royals, as he has posted a 2.16 ERA in two career starts against KC.

Danny Duffy takes the bump coming off two of his best outings of the season. Duffy has pitched into the eighth inning in each of his past two starts while throwing 16 strikeouts and not registering a single walk.
