The MLB brings more action on Saturday as the Boston Red Sox take on the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington in game three of their four-game series. The Red Sox will give a start to Steven Wright and the Mariners will counter with Wade Leblanc.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Boston Red Sox are one of the best teams in the league this season. They are tied with the New York Yankees for the best record in the league. It is a very interesting contest and both teams are aiming to win every game in order to finish at the top of the division. The Red Sox are facing the Mariners, a team that has the 4th best record in the MLB. The Red Sox won the first game of this series by a score of 2-1. However, they failed to reproduce that solid performance in the second game of the series as they lost with a score of 7-6. They will need to improve in this game if they want to keep pace with the Yankees. The Red Sox have averaged 4.47 runs per game have allowed 3.19 runs per game on the road so far.
Steven Wright record against the Mariners stands at 2-1 with a 1.32 ERA in three games (one start), including 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA in two games (one start) at Safeco Field.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Sox has been very good as they enter this game on the 3rd spot in the league in scoring, putting up 5.09 runs per game, while also holding the 2nd spot in hitting at .263 and 2nd place in homers with a total of 100 so far. On the mound, they have some solid stats as they are placed on the 4th spot in the league in ERA at 3.39, while also being 5th in WHIP at 1.20 and 2nd in K’s with 686.
Seattle Marines Form
The Seattle Mariners lost the first game of this series with a score of 2-1. They had some serious problems with their offensive abilities in that game. Before that ,they were on a seven home game winning run. However, the Marines showed that they are a quality team as they bounced back in the second game. Seattle won the game with a score with a 7-6. The Mariners have averaged 3.97 runs per game and have allowed 3.89 runs per game here at home for the year.
Wade Leblanc record against the Red Sox stands at 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA in two starts. Leblanc is 4-2 with a 4.60 ERA in 19 games (13 starts) at Safeco in his career.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mariners have some average stats this season as they are placed on the 13th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.41 runs per game, while also holding the 5th spot in hitting at .260 and 8th place in homers with a total of 85 so far. On the mound, the Marines have some average stats as they are placed on the 13th spot in the league in ERA at 3.83, while also holding the 9th spot in WHIP at 1.22 and 9th place in K’s with 603.
It seems that both of these two teams are in a solid form. The Red Sox are the 2nd best offensive team in the league and there is more to come from them. On the other side, the Marines are resilient and they showed that as they won the second game. However, I expect that the Red Sox will bounce back from that defeat and win this game. Take the Red Sox in this game.
