The Seattle Mariners are at Fenway Park in Boston taking on the Red Sox in the second game of their three game series. The Mariners have won 3 of the 4 meetings so far this season versus the Red Sox but last season they went just 1-6 in the season series with the Sox.
Head to Head Trends
Mariners are 11-29 in the last 40 meetings in Boston.
Over is 10-0-1 in the last 11 meetings.
Boston Red Sox (-109)
The Boston Red Sox are last in the American League East and are now 18 games out of 1st place. This has been a disappointing season for Red Sox fans especially considering that they won the World Series last season. The Red Sox are 16 games under .500 on the season with just 56 wins and 72 losses. The Red Sox main problem this season has been scoring runs. They are actually last in the American League in runs per game with just 3.80 runs per game. At home that drops slightly to 3.78 runs per game which is kind of mind blowing considering where they play. The Red Sox are just going through the motions right now they know they have nothing to play for and it shows as they have lost their last 6 straight games. Starting for the Sox today is Brandon Workman who is 1-7 with a 4.26 ERA in 11 starts this season plus a couple relief appearances.
Boston Red Sox Trends
Red Sox are 0-6 in their last 6 overall.
Red Sox are 0-7 in Workmans last 7 starts.
Seattle Mariners (-101)
The Seattle Mariners are 3rd in the American League West 7 games back of the 1st place LA Angels. The Mariners are 11 games over .500 on the season at 69-58 and surprisingly a lot of that success has come on the road where they have a 35-26 record. The Mariners don’t score a lot of runs averaging 3.97 runs per game but you don’t have to when you have the best pitching staff in baseball allowing just 3.18 runs per game. On the hill for the Mariners is the big man Chris Young who is 12-6 with a 3.07 ERA on the season.
Seattle Mariners Trends
Mariners are 5-0 in Youngs last 5 starts.
Mariners are 12-4 in their last 16 overall.
I don’t understand why Chris Young continues to be so underrated by lines makers and bettors a like. Young is 12-6 with a 3.07 ERA and the Mariners are 15-9 in his starts yet he has been the underdog in most of his starts this season. Even today at -101 he is the underdog to a Red Sox team who have lost their last 6 straight games and has a starting pitcher who is just 1-7 on the year.
