MLB Pick & Prediction by Austin Clark of PrecisionPicks.com
First Pitch: 7:05pm EST Pittsburgh, PA
Starters: Felix Hernandez (4-4, 3.23 ERA) vs Francisco Liriano (6-9, 4.96 ERA)
The Line: Seattle Mariners -110 / Pittsburgh Pirates -110, O/U 8
Pittsburgh hosts Seattle for a two game set at PNC Park.
The Seattle Mariners look for another win after winning five of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last six games. Robinson Cano leads Seattle with 121 hits, Kyle Seager has 65 RBI and Nelson Cruz has 25 home runs.
Felix Hernandez takes the mound tonight and he is 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Pirates.
The Pirates look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. Pittsburgh’s offense is heating up after scoring 12 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in four of their last five games. The Pirates have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring more than three runs.
Francisco Liriano takes the hill, and he’s 6-9 with a 4.96 ERA and 106 strikeouts this season. Liriano is 6-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 56 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
Mariners are 8-2 in their last 10 interleague road games.
Mariners are 5-13 in their last 18 road games vs. a team with a winning record
Mariners are 4-12 in their last 16 road games.
Mariners are 0-5 in their last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter
Pirates are 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games
Pirates are 20-8 in their last 28 games following an off day
Pirates are 7-3 in their last 10 home games vs. a right-handed starter
Pirates are 16-5 in Lirianos last 21 home start
The pick here is on the Pirates at home. Pittsburgh is swinging the bats really well and the Mariners are playing too inconsistent for me to back them. In addition, King Felix has allowed 11 runs in his last 12.2 innings which sets up perfectly for the Pirates offense to remain hot.
