Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners, second game of a long series in Seattle. For now the home team has the advantage with a victory. The Athletics prepare a secret weapon for tonight’s game. After last night’s defeat, visitors have a negative season record. The home team hopes to come out of this series with good results.
Oakland Athletics: This is not the time to lose.
The Athletics are third in the division at 3-4. Two games lost in the season have meant little to the team. But last night the A’s suffered the first loss on the road of the season. Last year in three series against the Mariners, the team won two. One of those winning series was in Seattle.
This season the Athletics won the first series against the LA Angels at home 3-1. For now the team is scoring an average of 3.43 runs, 3.57 walks, 6.00 hits and 12 left on base. Athletics allow up to 4.14 runs per game, 8.14 strike outs and 0.57 home runs.
Mike Fiers will be in the mound tonight. Last season was special for Fiers with a no-hitter game. In addition, 2019 was the best year for Fiers as a professional. Last season’s numbers were 15-4, .789, and 3.90 ERA.
Seattle Mariners: Coming out of the gap.
The Mariners appear to be recovering after a poor start to the season with four losses in the first five games. Three games against the Astros and one loss against the Angels. Before this series against the Athletics, the Mariners won 2-1 at Anaheim. Yesterday the Mariners won the first game 5-3 with Taijuan Walker in the mound.
The team is scoring an average of 5.12 runs per game, 3.62 walks, 9.00 hits, 1.00 home runs and 15.12 left on base. Mariners allow up to 6.75 runs per game, 4.50 walks, 7.88 hits, and 1.62 home runs. Most statistics are based on games on the road.
Yusei Kikuchi will be the starting pitcher for this game against the Athletics. Last season was negative for him with 6-11 and 5.46 ERA. This season is the second as a professional for Kikuchi in the majors. In Japan his record in 8 season was 73-46.
