The Mariners are about done on the road, and have a good amount of pressure on their hands to avoid not just a sweep, but heading back home in the midst of a five-game losing streak. The White Sox are a darn good team, but getting the final game of the series would be huge. A big thing to keep an eye on will be the weather. For some reason that is unbeknownst to man, they never delayed the game at all yesterday.
Actually, it’s partially because they were either going to have to play a doubleheader today, and then fly back home real late OR head back there next month to play one game, and then fly out somewhere else. Rock meet Hard Place.
Let’s get to the odds, predictions, and lineups. Here we go!

Mariners Pitcher Today: Logan Gilbert
Logan Gilbert had quite the first start this season, showing increased velocity on the slider, commanding the zone, and working out of a big-time jam early. He is going to have his hands full with a strong Chicago lineup, but that should be made a tiny bit easier with Eloy Jiminez dealing with a bum ankle.
Mariners Starting Lineup
Haniger slides into the DH spot today, with Kelenic heading back into the field and taking his spot in RF. Julio is back in center, and Raleigh is behind the dish to once again catch Gilbert as he did in Minnesota.
The big move that should stand out to everyone is JP, as he jumps all the way up to 5 after sitting in either the 8 or 9 spot all season up to this point. It makes sense, as he is hitting .421/.522/.526 on the season. With 4 BBs and 2 2Bs so far, he’s finding ways to get on base and make an impact. Moving him up in the order could give him an extra at-bat, and one more chance to do some damage… whether it’s on the bases or with his feet.
Mariners vs White Sox Prediction Today
Screw it. The Mariners are crushing the White Sox today. Jimmy Lambert has 15 innings in the majors in his career with a 5.40 ERA and a 5.77 FIP. The Mariners are going to inflate that today, scoring 5 runs against him in 2.2 innings. Gilbert is nasty again, averaging 87.2 on the slider, striking out 6 across 6 innings, giving up a mistake blast to someone, but exiting with just 2 ER through six innings.
The Mariners find a couple more runs along the way with a Raleigh two-run double in the 7th, and they head back home with the bats picking up some heat and a 9-3 win.
