Why Bet on San Francisco?The Giants are 51-50 and trying to hang around in the NL West and wild-card races. They enter on a two-game skid following a 6-5 10-inning loss in Oakland on Sunday in interleague action. Marcus Semien scored from second base on Matt Chapman’s infield chopper in the 10th. Andrew McCutchen homered for San Francisco. Austin Slater collected three hits, Pablo Sandoval had a pinch-hit, two-run single and Nick Hundley added two hits and scored twice. San Francisco didn’t have a baserunner until the fifth inning.Third baseman Evan Longoria was beaned in the upper left triceps in his final plate appearance during his minor league rehab assignment on Sunday. Longoria is fine, he did not sustain any further injury from the beaning, but the veteran was not happy about it. He should be activated from the DL for this game.The Giants are 14-17 (.452) all-time against the Mariners. The Giants, who have lost nine of their last 12 in Seattle, has not played at Safeco since 2015. Giants manager Bruce Bochy (1,904 wins) needs one more managerial victory to tie Hall of Famer Casey Stengel (1,905) for the 11th-most wins all-time.It’s Andrew Suarez (3-6, 3.94) on the bump. Last time out, he allowed four runs over five innings of a loss to Oakland. Suarez’s final start before the All-Star break ended a stretch of six consecutive appearances in which he yielded two runs or fewer. The 25-year-old southpaw will make his 17th start of the season. He has given up 10 homers, but just two have come in his last seven outings (41.0ip).Suarez is seeking his first win since defeating Arizona June 29 at Chase Field. Since he’s gone 0-2 with a 3.00 ERA in his last three starts. Suarez has posted a 2.75 ERA (16er, 52.1ip) in his past nine starts. He has never faced the Mariners.
Why Bet on Seattle?The Mariners would be a wild-card team as things stand in the AL, but the A’s are breathing right down their necks. They opened the second half taking two of three vs. the White Sox after winning the final 8-2 on Sunday. Ryon Healy hit a pair of three-run homers.Healy’s first three-run shot capped off a five-run first inning for the host Mariners, and his second one in the bottom of the eighth put the game completely out of grasp. Healy has an ugly .274 on-base percentage in 82 games this season for Seattle, but he’s up to 20 home runs and 53 RBI. That puts him on pace to finish the year with 32 homers and 86 RBI — both of which would be career highs. There’s some talk that Seattle might trade Healy by next week’s deadline with Robinson Cano close to returning from an 80-game suspension. The Mariners could have Cano see some time at first base after he returns so Healy is expendable.Seattle also activated starting catcher Mike Zunino from the DL on Sunday. He had missed most of July with a bruised ankle. He’s not hitting a lick this year. The Mariners are 39-15 (.722) this season in games decided by 1 or 2 runs, the highest winning percentage in the Majors. The Mariners are 26-12 (.684) in 1-run games (most 1-run wins in MLB) and 13-3 (.813) in games decided by exactly 2 runs (best 2-run winning pct. in MLB). Seattle is 43-12 when scoring 4-or-more runs, but are 17-28 when scoring 3-or-fewer runs.The Mariners are 52-0 when leading after 8 innings this season. They are 1 of 4 Major League clubs with a 1.000 winning percentage when leading after 8 innings this season, joining the Yankees (53-0), Oakland (47-0) and Texas (34-0).Ace lefty James Paxton (8-4, 3.70) is expected to be activated off the 10-day DL to face the Giants for the first time in his career. A stiff lower back led to the lefty throwing just 17 pitches in his last outing when he gave up three runs — and two homers — at Anaheim. Paxton threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday without issue and felt good a day after Sunday.A total of 10 of his last 15 outings have been quality starts. He has recorded 7 outings with double-digit strikeouts. Paxton is 4-6 with a 3.64 ERA (26 ER, 64.1 IP) in 12 career Interleague starts.
