Mariners vs. Athletics Odds
|Time||9:40 p.m. ET|
The Mariners and Athletics face off in an AL West showdown at Oakland Coliseum on Tuesday night. Seattle and Oakland are third and second in the AL West, respectively.
The Mariners have won three of their last four games, including winning the first game of a four-game set against the Athletics.
Prior to Oakland’s 4-2 loss to the Mariners on Monday, the Athletics had ripped off a five-game winning streak that contained only road games.
Oakland has been just as good at home, and its league-leading 73 quality starts are a big part of the extended success.
Athletics starter Paul Blackburn has a solid 4.05 ERA at home and he has won two of his last three starts, though they have been significantly short outings backed by the Oakland bullpen.
With Seattle and Oakland both battling for wild-card spots in the AL, this game and series between these two teams could have big implications for the MLB postseason.
