Game Preview

The Seattle Mariners are playing the Kansas City Royals as they push for the postseason. The Mariners were riding a hot streak entering their weekend series with the Orioles. After taking game one of the series, they lost game two and two of the three to the Orioles, bringing their winning streak to a stop and losing the series.
Nevertheless, the long winning streak helped them catch up in the playoff race. The Mariners are 63-54 on the year, 6.5 games behind the Rangers in the American League West. They’re only 1.5 games behind the second-place Blue Jays in the Wild Card chase as well, hoping to overtake them.
The winning streak for the Mariners was aided by outstanding pitching. The Mariners have allowed only 31 runs in their last ten games. The Mariners have the highest earned run average and WHIP in baseball this season, and they rank second in both opponent batting average and quality starts. Today, the Mariners will send Logan Gilbert to the mound. This year, he has a 10-5 record and a 3.66 ERA.
The Royals, meanwhile, have been eliminated from playoff contention. They have dropped six of their previous 10 games and are coming off a split of a two-game series with the Cardinals. The Royals have a record of 38-81; their next loss will guarantee a losing season. They trail the Twins by 23.5 games in the division and are 27.5 games back in the Wild Card race.
Today, Brady Singer, who is 8-8 with a 5.05 ERA, will take the mound. But he has really stepped it up this month. He has gone 14.2 innings while allowing only 3 runs. That’s helped him go 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA so far this month. When Singer has started on the mound for the Royals, they have gone 5-for-7 in wins throughout that span. Furthermore, the team has triumphed in every start in which he has pitched seven or more innings.
