Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics, last game in the series for the Mariners, another interesting series also tied in a victory for each one, but tonight the surprise can come for the Mariners with Felix Hernandez and his record high this season against Edwin Jackson who has been much more solid with the Athletics on the road. The home team no longer has aspirations to the playoffs, but if they can hurt the Athletics defeat them tonight.
Seattle Mariners: Our house, our rules.
The season is over for the Mariners, they made the effort to reach 86 victories and 71 overall wins, plus the record at home has remained positive with 42 wins and 34 losses with 55.30% effectiveness. Between August and September the defeats destroyed the team’s dreams of reaching the playoffs, 14 defeats and only 7 victories in 21 games at home, that “losing streak” was what further alienated the team from the race to the playoffs. Before this series they were swept by the San Diego Padres and lost a series against the Yankees.
Felix Hernandez, a 14-year veteran with the Mariners has not had his best season this year, 8 wins and 13 losses has been one of his worst seasons. 1-4 in the last 5 home games for him, his ERA is on the floor with .381 with 5.46 ERA.
Oakland Athletics: Playoffs or nothing.
The Athletics need a victory tonight to secure a little more position among the first five of the American League, in fact they are already safe in the playoffs, but it is better to win than lose. On the road the record is positive for the Athletics, 45 wins and 32 losses with 58.4% effectiveness, they have not suffered big losing streaks, they were only swept once on the road by the Colorado Rockies. Before this series they lost against the Rays, won against the Orioles and lost against the defending champions 1-2.
Edwin Jackson is the key player tonight, Jackson’s record is much better than last season, this time with 6 wins and 3 losses has shown to have a new air in his MLB career with 16 years of experience. 4-1 in the last five games for Jackson, the effectiveness on the road for him is .800 this season.
