Oakland Athletics @ Seattle Mariners – 10:10 p.m. ET
Perhaps no team was more to blame for the Athletics’ second-half collapse than the Mariners, who have won nine straight against Oakland since July 23. Now, these division rivals face off again — and the series loser is likely eliminated from playoff contention.
We’re going to back the streak continuing tonight. The A’s are still adjusting to Elvis Andrus (lower leg) and Jed Lowrie (hand) hitting the injured list, as they barely escaped with a necessary series sweep against Houston over the weekend. On the mound, Cole Irvin has gotten wrecked by the Mariners this season, showing a 7.56 ERA and 2.16 WHIP against them.
Both teams are traveling after Sunday wins, but the Mariners have home-field advantage and a more rested bullpen. They make things difficult for Oakland at least one more time.
Pick: Mariners -120*
DFS Value Play: J.P. Crawford ($3,900)
