5* MLB *BEST BET* Bailout on Mariners -115
The Mariners went down Monday but are 4-0 in their last four games following a loss. They are also 4-0 in their last four in the second game of a series. Plus, they have the edge on the mound with Felix Hernandez.
The Cy Young Award winner is dialed in with a 0.73 ERA over his last three starts. He has given up one or no runs in six of his last seven outings. The Mariners are 5-2 in those seven starts.
In addition, the M's are 21-4 all-time in the second half of the season in Hernandez's home starts versus AL opponents with a batting average of .265 or worse. They are also 22-7 lifetime in Hernandez's home starts when the money line is +125 to -125.
The Mariners are 22-8 in Hernandez's last 30 home starts versus a team with a winning record and 6-2 in his last 8 starts versus the Yankees.
New York's Freddy Garcia, who has a 7.18 ERA in eight starts this season, doesn't offer the same level of confidence. We'll take Seattle.
