The Seattle Mariners are hosting the Detroit Tigers tonight in Major League Baseball action. The game is scheduled for a 10:00 p.m. (EST) start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN. The MLB Odds for the game have the Mariners favored to pick up the win.
Total: 9.5 runs
The Tigers are really struggling right now and need to find a way to have a winning road trip. Detroit (32-36) is only 4.5 games outside of first place in the very winnable American League Central, but the Tigers have to get things going in the right direction. They're not a very good road team either, so this could be a struggle tonight.
Anibal Sanchez (0-0, 9.00 ERA) was demoted to the bullpen despite making big-time money and he's been an absolute wreck this season. In 11 appearances this season Sanchez has given up an earned run in nine spots and has surrendered nine home runs as well. Not good. Current Mariners are hitting .246 against him covering 143 plate appearances, Nelson Cruz has four home runs.
The Mariners (34-37) counter with youngster Sam Gaviglio (3-1, 3.41). He's made six starts this season but has only made it into the sixth inning three times. Detroit has a potent lineup but odds are they will be playing from behind the entire game, which should allow Gaviglio to throw strikes.
