4 units on Kansas City -151 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
The Mariners have cashed in their chips for the season. When Seattle does go on the road their motivation is to get the game over with and get closer to closing the curtain on a dreadful 2008 season. The M's have now dropped eight straight on the road and will be hard-pressed to deliver a win in this contest. Gil Meche has pitched the Royals to 12 wins in his last 17 starts, while Ryan Rowland Smith has failed to deliver in five of his last seven. The Royals’ secret weapon is what they have done against left-handed pitching. They are a last place team, yet they have logged more wins against left-handed pitching than any other team. That's all you need to know here, the Royals get it done.
