After losing 3 of their first 4 games, the Seattle Mariners came back to win their last 2 in Oakland in extra innings. This is supposed to be the year that many experts have picked to win the American League West. They haven’t started off too hot as they rank near the bottom of the majors in all categories. They’re only hitting .201 as a team and their much heralded pitching staff has a 4.82 ERA through six games. Dustin Ackley is the only Mariner hitting over .300 and he also leads the team with 2 home runs.
James Paxton (0-1, 3.00) takes the mound for Seattle. He pitched well in his first outing of the year losing 2-0 to the Angels in Seattle. He’s a very good young lefty who started 13 games last year and had a nice 3.04 ERA.

The Dodgers also sit at 3-3 on the year after avoiding a sweep in Arizona yesterday. They are hitting the ball well thanks in most part to Adrian Gonzalez who is hitting a ridiculous .605 with 5 HR and 7 RBI. Yasiel Puig finally hit a home run yesterday, but is hitting a lowly .136 so far and has only scored 2 runs. Their defense has been bad as they are 29th in the league with 7 errors.
Brandon McCarthy (0-1, 7.20) was roughed up bad in his first start. He allowed 9 hits and 4 runs in only 5 innings in a loss to the Padres at home. He did strike out 9 in that game.
Pick: Mariners +106
