Seattle at Los Angeles MLB Prediction 09/13/2018
Both of these teams are out of the playoff picture, and while the Angels are surging as the regular season draws to a close, the Mariners are sinking. The Seattle lineup has been struggling to score runs in the last few games, but at least they will be facing Despaigne, who did not even register an out in his previous appearance. Leake stopped the bleeding with a solid effort in his last start after giving up a total of 11 earned runs in his previous two outings. He will have a pretty good outing in this game in La La Land, but the reason the Mariners will win will be their lineup. They will snap out of their funk tagging up Despaigne and Seattle will take the first game of this division series.
