Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners. The MLB Pick for this game is Seattle -145. The Mariners may not be able to make it to the playoffs but the restructuring works well as the team won three consecutive contests. Both starters have their own issues on the mound but southpaw Yusei Kikuchi (7-7, 4.22 ERA) is just better than Brad Keller (8-12, 5.43 ERA). Moreover, Seattle scored a total of 16 runs in their last three outings played against a good starter and they have the advantage of playing at home on Thursday. The prediction: The Seattle Mariners will win at 5-4.
