Kansas City Royals vs Seattle Mariners Predictions 4/22/2022

 

The Seattle Mariners ended a three-game series versus the Texas Rangers at 2 to 1 after a 6-8 loss in the closing match on Thursday. The Mariners will try to continue their success in facing the Royals in a three-game duel to start on Friday evening.

 

Seattle took 2nd place at 7-5 in the American League West Division with a team percentage at .583 and 0.5 contests behind first place while collecting 49 runs but has given away 39 for a run difference of +10 on the year.

 

Second Baseman Adam Frazier scored two runs with two free bases in leading the Mariners in their recent loss to the Rangers while starter Marco Gonzales allowed 6 hits, 2 earned runs, and a walk but struck out 6 batters in 4.2 innings of work in the loss.

 

The top batters for Seattle are 3rd Baseman Eugenio Suarez with 3 home runs, 8 RBIs, and a BA at .175 while Shortstop J.P. Crawford marked a batting average at .316, an on-base percentage of .438, with a slugging rate at .447.

 

Third Baseman Ty France contributed a team-high 10 RBIs with 2 home runs and a batting average of .289 for the Mariners.

 

Seattle will give a nod to righty Chris Flexen to start the opening match of a series against Kansas City on Friday night. The right-handed thrower has zero save with a 5.23 ERA, a WHIP of 1.35, and struck out 6 batters this season.          

 

Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners. The MLB Pick for this contest is Seattle -135. The Mariners have the advantage on the mound as Flexen is consistently solid in leading his team in the victory.

 

The Royals recorded a poor 77wRC+ with an OBP at .267 and improving these figures against the righty Flexen is a tough job as the right-hander is very good at controlling free bases and hard contact. Prediction: The Seattle Mariners will win to a score of 6-2.
