Major league baseball on Sunday afternoon and we will see the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Seattle Mariners in game 2 of their 3 game series from Safeco Field in Seattle. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 4:10 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
Over/ Under: 7.5 O -115
The Blue Jays rank 1st in scoring (5.32 rpg), while on the mound they are 23rd in ERA (4.07). Seattle ranks 26th in scoring (3.57 rpg), while on the mound they are 19th in ERA (3.91).
Trends for tonight’s game includes: The Blue Jars are 13-3 in Buehrle's last 16 road starts vs. a team with a losing record and 20-6 in his last 26 starts as a favorite, while the Mariners are 7-1 in Walkers last 8 starts, but 5-16 in their last 21 during game 3 of a series.
Getting the ball for the Blue Jays today will be Mark Buehlre, who is 11-5 with a 3.23 ERA in 19 starts this year, while on the road he has gone 6-4 with a 3.39 ERA in 11 starts. Mark is 8-5 with a 3.57 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) vs the Mariners, while at Safeco Field he has gone 1-3 with a 4.03 ERA in 7 starts.
Taking the hill for Seattle today will be Taijuan Walker, who is 7-7 with a 5.06 ERA in 19 starts this year, while at home he has gone 2-3 with a 4.17 ERA in 8 starts. Walker is 0-2 with a 3.29 ERA in 2 career starts vs the Blue Jays.
Pick: I will go with the Jays in this game. Mark Buehrle has been on fire of late as he has a 1.23 ERA in his last 3 starts and he hasn't allowed more than 2 ERs in 9 straight starts. Taijaun Walker has not been hot as he has faced the Tigers twice and the Halos once in his last e starts and have allowed 5 ERs or more in all 3. Now he will take on the top offense in the league so I expect him to struggle once again. He did faced the Jays earlier in the year and he allowed 4 ERs in an 8-2 loss. This is a classic mismatch game as the team with the much better starter has the much better offense as well. The Jays could win this one rather easy as the Mariners just won't come up with enough offense in this one.
