The Mariners’ offense is ranked 28th, with a team batting average of .229. They have an OBP of .307, a SLG of .381, and a WHIP of 688. Marco Gonzales will be on the mound for today’s game.

Boston is 23-20 after beating Seattle yesterday. Masataka Yoshida was 2 for five in the game scoring two runs and three RBIs. Alex Verdugo added three runs on a 2 for 4 hitting day. The Red Sox offense is ranked third with a team batting average of .268. They have an OBP of .339, a SLG of .447, and an OPS of .786. Brayan Bello is the projected pitcher for today’s game. He is too- 1 with a 5.01 ERA and 24 strikeouts. Boston is ranked 27th in pitching with a team ERA of 5.07. They have given up 214 earned runs and have an OBA of .265 and a WHIP of 1.38.
Seattle has been too inconsistent to trust, whereas Boston has been good all year. The Red Sox’s record reflects how brutal their schedule has been to start the year. I am going with my gut and riding Boston to win and cover the run line. Bello has been pitching better, and with the Mariners’ offense being on the weaker side, he has a good day on the mound.
