Seattle Mariners Form

Seattle travelled to Tampa Bay on a disappointing run of form that has seen them lose five of their previous eight games.

The Mariners hit a hot streak in the second half of August as they racked up 12 wins in a 13-game spell.

Their form cooled off following a 3-1 loss to Oakland, with just three wins coming since that night.

Seattle beat the Athletics 5-4, only to then lose 2-1 and 8-7 to the New York Mets either side of an 8-7 victory.

The Mariners travelled to Cincinnati after that and suffered 6-3 and 7-6 defeats, before avoiding being swept with an 8-4 win in the final meeting.

Tampa Bay Rays Form

Tampa Bay came into this series on the back of consecutive wins at home to Boston.

The Rays were in fine form during the second half of August, registering 10 wins in a 12-game period.

That sequence included a four-game win streak that saw them beat the New York Yankees 3-0 and 7-4 at home, and Miami 11-2 and 3-0 on the road.

Tampa Bay’s form stalled in Cleveland though, as they suffered 3-2 and 7-6 defeats, although did win the final meeting 6-2.

The Rays then lost the series opener at home to Boston, 7-3, but responded quickly with 8-6 and 3-1 wins over the Red Sox.

Verdict

Tampa Bay are sending an out-of-form pitcher to the mound, and Seattle have the firepower to take advantage.
