Tampa Bay Rays vs Seattle Mariners Prediction

I’ll try the Mariners in this one. Kirby has been doing pretty well on the mound lately. Over his last three starts he’s got three earned on 13 hits and two walks combined over 20.0 innings. As for Pepiot, he’s got 11 earned over 14.0 innings in his last three outings.

On Tuesday the Mariners had a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning, then the wheels fell off. Seattle’s pitching was pretty bad, but the offense didn’t deliver a whole lot either—outside of two homers, that is. Seattle needs a complete readjustment for Wednesday.
