St. Louis Cardinals vs Seattle Mariners 4/23/2023 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The 2023 Major League Baseball Season progresses into its fourth week and the St. Louis Cardinals are set to take on the Seattle Mariners in an interleague battle at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

 

Seattle enters the matchup as the favorite with -140 odds, and the total is set at 7.5. The last time these teams met was in July 2019, with St. Louis winning two out of three games in Seattle.

 

Over the past decade, the teams have split the last 10 meetings dating back to 2010.

 

The Cardinals are coming off a 14-5 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, avoiding a sweep of the three-game series.

 

While they went 3-4 on their recent seven-game homestand, the Cardinals are currently 3-3 on the road this season. They currently hold fourth place in the NL Central.

 

In their recent win against the Diamondbacks, the Cardinals’ offense was led by Tommy Edman, who went 3-4 with three runs scored and five RBI, including hitting his second home run of the season, and Nolan Gorman, who hit a grand slam.

 

Despite an impressive .795 OPS, which ranks third overall in the league, the Cardinals are 13th in runs scored with 91, averaging 5.52 runs per game over their last 10 games.

 

The Cardinals will be starting right-hander Miles Mikolas, who has struggled early this season, going 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA in four starts.

 

However, Mikolas showed improvement in his last outing, allowing only two earned runs in 5.2 innings. He will need support from the bullpen, which has a 3.33 ERA this year and a 2.92 ERA over the last 10 games.

 

  • The St. Louis Cardinals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of St. Louis’ last 8 games on the road.
  • The Cardinals are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games on the road against Seattle.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Seattle Mariners Predictions 4/23/2023

 

The Seattle Mariners lost to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, 5-3, losing all three games of the series. That dropped Seattle to 5-8 at home as they are currently in fourth place in the AL West.

 

Seattle has been the favorite in eight of their last 10 games, but are just 4-6 in that span. The Mariners were shutting down Milwaukee through the first six innings, as Marco Gonzales was brilliant.

 

However, things unraveled in the seventh as the Brewers scored five runs to earn the victory. Matt Brash took the loss after giving up three earned runs in that inning.

 

That was a disappointing performance for a solid bullpen that is 11th in ERA (3.42) but has a 4.17 ERA over their last 10 games.

 

Luis Castillo will get the start, and he has been brilliant, going 2-0 with a 0.73 ERA in four starts. Castillo has only allowed two earned runs in 24.2 innings pitched and has been scored upon in only one of his four starts.

 

Julio Rodriguez homered as part of a two-hit, two-RBI performance. The Mariners’ offense has been mediocre this season, producing 85 runs, 18th overall, and they are hitting just .228 with a .678 OPS.

 

Those numbers have been even worse over the last 10, as the team has a .213 batting average, but is averaging 4.65 runs per game.

  • The Seattle Mariners are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games played on a Sunday.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of Seattle’s last 5 games when there was no favorite.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Seattle’s last 8 games played on a Sunday when at home.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Seattle Mariners. The MLB pick for this game is the Seattle Mariners.

 

Although neither team is performing at its best currently, the Seattle Mariners have a significant advantage with their starting pitcher, Luis Castillo, taking the mound.

 

Castillo has been nothing short of dominant, allowing just 10 hits and four walks in 24.2 innings pitched. The only two runs 

 

scored against him were in a game against the Cubs on April 10. Notably, when pitching at home, Castillo has been nearly untouchable, conceding just five hits in 18.2 innings and has yet 

 

to allow a run. This presents a formidable challenge for the St. Louis Cardinals, who have struggled against right-handed pitchers this season with a team batting average of .292.

 

On the other hand, St. Louis will be starting Mikolas, who has struggled significantly this year. Mikolas has only made one start on the road, where he gave up six runs on 10 hits in just 5.0 innings against Colorado on April 11.

 

Given the contrasting form of the two starting pitchers, the pitching matchup heavily favors the Mariners, making it an anticipated and likely victory for the Seattle team predicted at 6-4.
