Play on: Mariners +104 at BMaker

My free play is on the Sea Mariners at 4:10 ET. The Mariners have hit seven HRs while winning the first two of their three-game series with the LA Angels and have now won 10 of their last 12 to move a a season-high 19 games above .500 at 43-24. Nelson Cruz homered twice on Monday as the Mariners won the opener 5-3, then Mitch Haniger and Ryon Healy both hit HRs in Tuesday's 6-3 victory, off-setting Mike Trout's two HRs in each of the first two games. Trout's 11th and 12th career multi-HR efforts were his fourth at Safeco Field (a record for a visiting player) and increased his major league-leading total to 23 round-trippers. However, Trout's four HRs over the past two nights haven't translated into victories and after a terrific 13-3 start to the 2018 season, the 37-31 Angels find themselves 6 1/2 games back of the first-place Mariners as the look to avoid a three-game sweep at Safeco in this afternoon contest.

Wednesday's pitching matchup will feature LA's Garrett Richards (4-4, 3.26 ERA) going up against Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales (7-3, 3.28 ERA). Richards owns an impressive 2.53 ERA over his last six starts but remains win-less during that stretch (he's 0-3 and the team is 2-4).  In fact, his last win came back on May 4 vs the Mariners, when he scattered four hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings of a 5-0 victory. That win made him 6-4 with a 2.91 ERA in 19 career appearances (11 starts) versus Seattle.

Gonzales leads the Mariners in victories (seven) and is looking to win his fifth consecutive start. He has posted an outstanding 0.81 ERA over his last five outings, winning the last four after settling for a no-decision back on May 17 when he allowed a single unearned run over 5.2 innings against the Tigers. Gonzalez escaped with a no-decision against the Angels back on May 5, when he yielded four runs and nine hits over six innings, leaving him with a 4.40 ERA in three career starts vs Los Angeles.

"We're not swinging the bats as a team," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "It puts our pitchers under a lot of pressure to make pitches. And any mistakes we had (Tuesday) they hit out of the park. Give those guys some credit, but one guy can't carry you. Mike is swinging the bat very well, but we need some other guys to step up." LA should have its work cut out for itself against Gonzalez, who has allowed just 21 hits in 33.1 innings during a five-game stretch that has established him as a solid member of the Seattle rotation. Play Seattle to sweep the LA Angels.

Good luck...Larry
