Los Angeles Angels vs Seattle Mariners (4:10 PM ET)
LINE: Los Angeles Angels (+118) vs. Seattle Mariners (-128); total: 9.5 – view all MLB lines
The Angels enter the game as winners of five straight, with the last three coming at the expense of the Mariners. They will be starting Parker Bridwell next, one of their best pitchers of the season, to help continue the streak. Bridwell is 6-1 with a 3.00 ERA on the season, and the Angels have won in 10 of his 11 appearances on the year.
The Mariners, meanwhile, will be looking to breakout of a three-game skid and avoid a series sweep. Their starting pitcher will be Ariel Miranda, who’s 7-5 with a 4.65 ERA is definitely not inspiring. Seattle’s Veteran slugger Nelson Cruz, however, is a player to watch out for, as he has six homers and 12 RBIs in the past week.
Bridwell versus Miranda is an interesting matchup, with the former having good stats but allowing the current Mariners to hit .444 against him overall and the latter having awful stats but only permitting the Angels to hit .193 against him all-time.
The Angels lead the season series, 8-4.
The Mariners (-128) avoid a series sweep, 6-5.
Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees (8:05 PM ET)
Line: Boston Red Sox (-164) vs. New York Yankees (+149); total: 8.0 – view all MLB lines
The Red Sox have won nine of their last 10, although it’s worth noting that that one loss was to the Yankees. Chris Sale (14-4, 2.57 ERA) is returning to the mound to avoid another defeat. He has allowed three runs on 11 hits on two walks in the 15.2 innings he has tossed against the Yanks. ‘Sox rookie Andrew Benintendi, meanwhile, who’s 10-for-18 for two homers and four RBIs in the last seven days, is eyeing to stay hot.
Jordan Montgomery (7-6, 4.04 ERA) will be Sale’s pitching counterpart for the game. He should be seeking redemption, as he has three runs on six hits and three walks in just four innings versus Boston this season. The Yankees have also lost in five of his last seven starts.
The Yankees lead the season series, 7-4.
The Red Sox (-164) win again, 5-1.
