Mariners Look Poised to Take Advantage of Struggling Athletics in Matchup

The Athletics have lost four consecutive games and five of their last six home games. Their offensive struggles have extended to their last three games, in which they scored a total of six runs. This performance is unlikely to improve, given their difficulty in dealing with right-handers and Woo's dominant pitching: he has given up five runs in his last three starts as well as a single run when facing the Athletics. On the other hand, Seattle has had trouble in their last five games, losing three. Offensively, they have recently scored six runs in their last three games. However, their lineup has historically fared well against left-handers, and Sears - who has given up nine runs in his last four starts - has been especially vulnerable in his past four home starts. With Oakland having the worst bullpen in the league, the Mariners are the more promising option to cover the run line.
