Seattle Mariners vs Minnesota Twins 4/9/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Seattle Mariners will meet with the Minnesota Twins in MLB action in Target Field, MN, on Saturday, April 9, 2022, at 2:10 PM ET. Seattle didn’t have much offensive performance in the season opener, but they received outstanding pitching to win a low-scoring game.

 

Jesse Winker, who was obtained from Cincinnati in the offseason, was the only player with two hits for the Mariners in the game. Mitch Haniger led the way for Seattle with his first home run of the year, a two-run drive, in the first inning.

 

On the mound, Robbie Ray (1-0) earned the victory in his first start since joining the Mariners from Toronto in the offseason. He went seven innings, surrendering one run on three hits while walking four batters and striking out five. Drew Steckenrider pitched a spotless ninth inning, striking out one batter. It was his first save of the season.

 

Logan Gilbert takes the mound for the Mariners in his first start of next season after earning 24 starts as a rookie in 2021.

 

Last season, he was 6-5 with a 4.68 ERA, 1.173 WHIP, 28 walks, and 128 strikeouts in 119.1 innings. Gilbert, in his 25th big league start, gets his first career appearance against the Twins in this game. This is also his first career appearance at Target Field.

 

On the bright side, Gilbert was a stronger pitcher on the road last year than he was at home. Over the course of 55 innings, he went 5-2 with a 4.75 ERA, 1.182 WHIP, 18 walks, and 60 strikeouts while surrendering seven home runs.

 

These figures are better than his 1-3 record at T-Mobile Park, when he went 1-3 with a 4.62 ERA, 1.166 WHIP, 10 walks, and 68 strikeouts across 64.1 innings in 13 starts.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Seattle’s last 6 matches.
  • The Seattle Mariners are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches against Minnesota.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Seattle’s last 7 matches on the road against Minnesota.

Seattle Mariners vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 4/9/2022

 

Minnesota received adequate pitching in their season opener, but their bats were unable to create much of anything against the Mariners’ pitching, resulting in a loss. The Twins are hoping to come back and win for the first time in 2022 in this game.

 

Minnesota only had four hits in Friday’s opening, with no player collecting more than one. Gio Urshela, who was acquired from the Yankees in the Josh Donaldson trade this offseason, drove in the lone run for the Twins with a single homer in the fourth inning, his first of the year.

 

Joe Ryan (0-1) took the defeat after pitching four innings and surrendering two runs on two hits with 4 walks and four strikeouts.

 

Sonny Gray, who was acquired in an offseason trade from the Reds, makes his Twins debut after completing 26 starts for Cincinnati the previous season.

 

In 135.1 innings of work in 2021, he was 7-9 with a 4.19 ERA, a 1.219 WHIP, 50 walks, and 155 strikeouts. Gray knows the Mariners well, having spent the first four years of his career with them before moving on to the Yankees and Reds. This is his 13th appearance versus the Mariners in his career.

 

Over 79.1 innings of work versus Seattle, he is 5-3 with a 2.84 ERA, 1.084 WHIP, 24 walks, and 78 strikeouts. In 5 career starts at Target Field, Gray is 1-3 with a 3.91 ERA, 1.461 WHIP, 16 walks, and 22 strikeouts in 25.1 innings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Minnesota’s last 11 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Minnesota’s last 8 matches at home.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 4-14 SU in their last 18 matches played in April.

Seattle Mariners vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. Pitching controlled the day in Seattle’s first game, which ended in a low-scoring affair.

 

The Mariners pitched the AL Cy Young Award winner, while Ray dominated a pitcher making his sixth major league start. The positions are inverted in this one, with Gray being the seasoned veteran on the hill and Gilbert being a second-year player.

 

To assist their pitching staff, Seattle will need to improve their at-bats and put some runs on the board. Gray is anxious to show that his subpar stats in Cincinnati were an exception and that he can make things happen on the mound.

 

The Twins improve their pitching performance and level the series by winning at home. The Minnesota Twins will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
