April 30, 2012

The Seattle Mariners take on the Tampa Bay Rays in game one of a four game set today. The Rays have come out of the gate quick and are 14-8 on the season. They will have Jeremy Hellickson on the mound against the ace for the Seattle Mariners, Felix Hernandez. The Rays beat the Texas Rangers twice over the weekend including a 5-2 win to end the series on Sunday. Ben Zobrist has been hitting well for the Rays as he had a single, double and triple in Sunday’s win at Texas.

Tampa Bay has defeated the Mariners in seven of their last eight meetings in Tampa, including the last four consecutive games. Hellickson is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.84 on the season and is 2-0 with an ERA of 0.61 at home. Last season he was 3-0 with an ERA of 0.81 in three starts against Seattle.

Seattle will have Hernandez on the mound, who is 2-1 with an ERA of 2.48 thus far this season. Over his last two starts, the Cy Young winner is 1-0 with an ERA of 0.60. Hernandez has not had his best stuff in some of his starts but he knows how to get through innings and get through games with a win.

Seattle is currently on a 10 game road trip. They won the first four games, but have lost two straight after losing Saturday and Sunday at Toronto. Hernandez for his career is 3-2 with an ERA of 2.42 against the Rays. Desmond Jennings has an 11-game hitting streak, but is hitless in his career against Hernandez

The line has the Rays as the favorite -115 to the Mariners +105. The run total is at 7. This game should be low scoring with two aces on the mound. The total should end UNDER with the Rays taking the first game of the series.
