Verdict

Seattle has dominated the series with Oakland this year. While Kikuchi has not been in-form lately and has been awful on the road lately, he has been nearly unhittable during day games this year with a 1.94 ERA and .195 batting average against. Kikuchi, who has had pretty good success against the A’s current lineup over his career, is 1-0 and has limited Oakland to 10 hits along with 4 runs in 12 innings over two starts.
 
Oakland’s offense has struggled against Seattle pitching staff lately, tallying just five runs in this series. The A’s have crossed the plate 19 times during their eight-game losing streak to the Mariners. Bassitt was throwing the ball pretty well before the horrific injury and has been very good at home and duping day games. However, he has been lit up by the Mariners in his two previous starts and you never know how the five weeks off will affect him.
