The Mariners had the day off yesterday and, and currently stand in third place in the NL West. They are 11-21 on the road and have started a new losing streak with their lost against the Astros two days ago. Saunders enters 4-6 with a 5.12 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. In his last start against the Yankees he gave up seven hits and three earned runs, while walking two and striking out four. He has lost three out of his last four decisions and the team has lost four out of his last five decisions. Saunders, however has won his last three starts at Saefco Field.
The Athletics won in an 18 inning game yesterday against the Yankees. Jarod Parker went eight strong giving up five hits while surrendering two earned runs. Tommy Milone enters with a 6-5 record and 3.69 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. In his last start in Chicago, he gave up four hits and one earned run in seven innings pitched while walking one and striking out seven. He has not pitched at home since a start against the Royals where he earned the win, giving up five hits and one earned run. The Athletics are 21-10 at home and are one three game winning streak. They currently are in first place in the AL West.
I am going with the Athletics. Their home record speaks for itself and Milone has been spectacular this season at online sports books.
