Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics Pick – MLB June 22, 2022

The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics get set for the middle game of a three-game series at the RingCentral Coliseum.

Seattle opened with an impressive 8-2 last night. They went back-to-back-back at the dish to take a 7-0 lead in the 7th. Julio Rodriguez, who is a budding star in the making, started the home run party with a 2-rum bomb.

Then Jesse Winker and Eugenio Suarez followed at the dish with a long ball. Marco Gonzales was tagged for a 2-home run in the bottom of the inning from Nick Allen, but he was steady for 90% of the night. The Mariners added a run in the top of the 9th to take an 8-2 lead.

Seattle won just their second game in seven attempts last night. They were swept by the LA Angels and didn’t have a successful homestand, but a trip to Oakland can be good for any team.

They have a lot of work ahead of them to get into the AL West mix. Right now, the Astros are clear of everyone and should be able to cruise.

Houston is 43-25 with a 10.5-game lead on the Texas Rangers.

The Angels looked like they were going to be competitive for a minute to open the season, but they aren’t dependable. It’s just another year for the Angels failing to play up to expectations.

Oakland fell to 23-46 and an abysmal 8-27 at home. The A’s are the worst team on the road by a long gap.

They look like a team that has no motivation to play well at the Coliseum, a place that has been an empty cavernous stadium. Look for the A’s to be known as the Las Vegas Athletics soon.

Mariners vs. Athletics Prediction:

George Kirby is being called on to get the start for the Mariners tonight. Kirby has largely been reliable in his rookie campaign. He is making the ninth outing of his major league career tonight.

Kirby enters the Coliseum tonight with an ERA of 3.56 and a 1.14 WHIP.

He has been terrific in spots and providing a glimpse of what could be their ace soon. Robbie Ray has been disappointing, but if you’re looking for something to be happy about in Seattle, Kirby is that guy.

Through eight starts, Kirby has allowed 1 or no earned runs in five outings. He’s coming off a strong performance versus the Angels, with 2 hits and 2 earned runs allowed in 6 frames.

Kirby has not allowed teams to really do a lot of damage. After allowing 4 earned runs to the A’s on May 24, he responded with fewer than 3 earned runs allowed in three of four attempts.

Following a good performance from Gonzales last night, Kirby should be in good shape in this one as well.

The A’s have been useless most days at the plate. They had success versus Kirby earlier in the season, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see them regress.

Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics Betting Trends:

Mariners

  • Record (Last 10): 3-7
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games five games on the road
  • 11-3 overall in their previous 14 games as a favorite on the road
  • 5-2 overall in their previous seven games versus a right-handed starter
  • 7-0 overall in their previou seven games at Oakland
  • 19-7 overall in their previous 26 games versus the Athletics

Athletics

  • Record (Last 10): 3-7
  • 1-6 overall in their previous seven games versus a team with a losing record
  • 1-4 overall in their previous five games on a Wednesday
  • 6-22 overall in their previous 28 games as an underdogs at home
  • 5-17 overall in their previous 22 games versus a right-handed starter
  • 7-20 overall in their previous 27 games versus the AL West

  • The A’s have been putrid from the dish this season. The offensive production is far and few between. They are scoring 3.26 runs per 9 innings and hitting just .210 for 30th in the major leagues.

    It has been tougher at home, with the A’s scoring 2.47 runs per 9 innings on 1.95 hitting.

    Paul Blackburn should give the A’s a decent shot in this one, but the bullpen will likely give it all up. Oakland has an ERA of 4.50 and a 1.44 WHIP from their relievers, which struggled again last night.

    Blackburn is like the rest of this team, which prefers to go on the road. He has been on fire with a 1.00 ERA and 1.02 WHIP away, but just a 4.39 ERA at home in Oakland.

    The Mariners look like a good bet to repeat versus the A’s on Wednesday night.
