Oakland vs. Seattle, 09/27/2013 22:10
Money Line: -115 Seattle
With Felix Hernandez on the mound the Mariners have a big advantage in this game. Hernandez has posted a 2.86 ERA this season, and he is facing an Oakland team that is already concentrating on the postseason. The Athletics have lost their last two games coming into this series, scoring just one run between the two games while. The Mariners on the other hand are still playing for pride.
This game falls into a system to play on a home team like Seattle when they have a starting pitcher whose ERA is 3.20 or better in the American League, when they are facing another American League starting pitcher who has a 1.200 WHIP or less. This system is 164-89 (65%) over the last five seasons. I don't expect Oakland to keep Colon in the game long since they won't want to risk tiring him out before the playoffs, and with Hernandez starting for Seattle the Mariners are an easy call.
