Seattle Mariners at Oakland As (-160, 8u -115, LVH): The RAYS game started too early (9:40 a.m.) for the websites readers so lets stay in the Senior Circuit and go to a team known for winning June and July the Oakland As. Home from a road trip, Oakland will want to start the homestand off right and needs wins against lesser opponents like the Ms to try and catch the Angels in the AL West.

Oakland starts southpaw Dana Eveland (6-5, 3.42 ERA) while Seattle gives the ball to left-hander Jarrod Washburn (4-7, 5.08), who has looked pretty good of late, with five consecutive solid outings including a two-game win streak. Eveland lost Wednesday to Anaheim his first loss in his last four starts and this may end up being a pitchers duel the way these two have been hurling lately.

The Ms are weak on the road (16-26) but have gone 8-3 in its last 11 (into Sunday) as Ichiro Suzuki (.303) has been hot with the bat lately. Still, Seattle (35-52) has the ALs worst record and is fighting for MLBs worst mark with San Diego (35-53) and Washington (34-56). Good usually beats bad. As.
