Fargo's 10* MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot (129-89 MLB Run)
2018-09-12 18:40:00

This is a play on the SEATTLE MARINERS for our MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot. Like Tampa Bay, Seattle is 8.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot in the American League and while getting there seems unlikely, the Mariners have to keep fighting because you just never know. They are coming off a tough loss last night as they managed only one run and gave up the winning run in the top of the ninth inning. It has been a poor homestand as they are just 3-4 although three of those games were against the Yankees. Seattle needs to close out strong as it heads out on a 10-game divisional roadtrip after today. San Diego is 4-3 on this current roadtrip and the win last night was a rare one against a left-handed starter as the Padres are 16-41 in their last 57 road games against left-handed starters while going 13-32 against left-handed starters this season. The bad news is they face another one and one that is red hot as Wade LeBlanc, who is having a great season overall, has posted a 0.47 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over his last three starts after a couple of rough starts in August. Those two bad outings came against the Astros and Dodgers however and he gets a great matchup tonight. Joey Lucchesi counters for San Diego and he is having a solid rookie season with a 3.59 ERA and 1.265 WHIP and while his numbers are better on the road, he gets no run support and the Padres are 1-4 in his last five road starts against teams with a winning record. 10* (930) Seattle Mariners
