Seattle Mariners Gameday Preview At Los Angeles Angels

Editor’s note: In light of all of the rumors surrounding the Mariners and who they may or may not trade for, stay informed by following the information we post here.

Well, after back-to-back extra inning games, let’s hope the Mariners can get things done early and often today so they can escape LA with a series win and head home to Safeco to get some sleep before hosting the Mets. Here’s the preview.

Game Details:

Seattle Mariners 52-45. Last 10: 4-6.

Los Angeles Angels: 58-38. Last 10: 8-2.

Game Time: 12:35 PM Pacific. Location: Anaheim, California. Angels Stadium of Anaheim.

 

MATCHUPS:

Pitching:

Seattle Mariners RHP Chris Young (8-6, 3.15 ERA) v. Los Angeles Angels LHP Tyler Skaggs (5-5, 4.50 ERA)

EDGE: Young. Unlike the previous two nights, runs should come easy for both clubs. But I’m gonna go with the veteran in this spot, to give up fewer runs and lead his team to a series win. In his one start this season again Seattle, Skaggs allowed five runs in 7 IP, but also struck out eight.

In Young’s only start against the Angels, he worked 6.1 IP allowing just two hits and one run.

Lineups:

Mariners:

Endy Chavez 8

Willie Bloomquist 4

Kyle Seager 5

Stefen Romero 9

Justin Smoak 3

Corey Hart DH

Dustin Ackley 7

Mike Zunino 2

Brad Miller 6

Of Note: Lloyd gives Robinson Cano a day off after 30 innings in 2 days. It also gets the right-handed Bloomquist into the lineup. I’m not sure what Romero has done to deserve batting cleanup but that’s not my call.

Angels:

Kole Calhoun 9

Mike Trout 8

Albert Pujols DH

Josh Hamilton LF

Howie Kendrick 4

David Freese 5

Efren Navarro 3

Grant Green 6

Hank Conger 2

Of Note: Same thing we saw yesterday, just the last two switched out. Conger likes facing Seattle.

 

Final Thoughts:

The Mariners should have it easier today than the previous two days. And it appears help may be on the way. I’m hopeful this one only goes 9 innings so the boys can head home for a little extra rest before tomorrow’s opener with the Mets.

Score Prediction:

Mariners 5, Angels 3
