The MLB is back in action on Saturday afternoon as the Seattle Mariners will clash with the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio in the third game of their four-game series. The Mariners took game one of this series by a score of 5-4. However, they lost the game two by a score of 5-6. The Mariners will start this game with the experienced pitcher Mike Leake and he will be opposed by the Venezuelan veteran pitcher Carlos Carrasco.
Seattle Marines Form
The Seattle Mariners have been in a good form lately as they won five of their last eight games. They beat the Indians in game one of this series by a score of 5-4. However, they lost the second game 5-6 in a very tight contest. The expectation is that the Marines will try to consolidate and win this game.
Their offensive stats have been below average so far as they are placed on the 19th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.21 runs per game, while also ranking 10th in hitting at .252 and being 14th in homers with a total of 26 so far. On the mound, their stats are poor which placed them at the 25th spot in the league in ERA at 4.91, while also ranking 14th in WHIP at 1.33 and 14th in K’s with 215.
Cleveland Indians Form
The Cleveland Indians have been in good form this season as their record is 14-10 so far. Their pitching has been the main driving force behind their success so far and Mike Clevinger has been one of the main reasons behind this. The Indians lost the first game of the series against the Mariners but they were quick to bounce back as they won the second game which will give the momentum and morale boost heading into this game on Saturday.
On the offensive side of their game, the Indians do not have a good stats so far as they are placed on the 23rd place in scoring, putting up just 3.52 runs per game. On the mound, Cleveland has been in a solid form which ranked them as the 4th best team in the league in ERA at 2.92, while also being the 1st team in WHIP at 1.02 and 22nd in K’s with 194.
The Indians have not been great on the offence this year, but they won game two and I think that their offensive potential will come out on Saturday. The Mariners has been playing well, but the Indians really are gaining momentum. And based on the stats from the previous two games. I expect an interesting game with both offences being productive and efficient. However, I go for the Indians to win this game.
