The Oakland A’s and the Seattle Mariners meet in the rubber match of their three game series on Sunday afternoon from Oakland. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Mariners at this point like a lot of teams and baseball are just finishing out the season and trying to do so on a high note. They did come up short yesterday in their game versus the A’s, but will look to take the series with a win this afternoon. On the mound this afternoon for the Mariners will be Erasmo Ramirez who is making his fourth start of the 2012 campaign. Ramirez has pitched well at least three previous starts only walking 1 batter and 21 innings of work.
The A’s won on Saturday With late inning theatrics like they have all season long. With the win they solidified their wildcard standing, but also gained some ground on the division leading Rangers. They will look to solidify that position even more so this afternoon behind the left arm of Tom Milone. Milone is coming off of a great effort versus the first-place Rangers his last time out and although he did not earn a decision, he kept the Athletics in the game which they ended up winning.
There’s obviously more incentive for Oakland in this game. Although we think the Mariners will play hard we just like the Athletics in this game and think they have something special going. Give us the Athletics as a moneyline favorite at the best online sportsbooks.
