Seattle at Oakland

1 unit on Oakland +115 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.15) RESULT: LOSS
Felix Hernandez is on the mound as a road favorite, but the light-hitting Mariners are 1-2 his last three starts, and 3-3 his last six. He also has not been sharp, allowing 24 hits in 16 innings over three starts for 16 runs! For the season he has a 4.57 ERA on the road and they skipped him in the rotation earlier this week to give him a breather, so he hasn't pitched in a while. Seattle won yesterday, but the Mariners are 16-35 following a win. Seattle is #24 in baseball in runs scored, #22 in on-base percentage and 1-5 in Hernandez's last six road starts. Oakland is 3-2 in the last five starts made by Jesse Chavez, and is coming off a win at Arizona 7-4, where he allowed just 1 run. He also sports a 2.85 ERA at home. Oakland plays its fifth straight home game and the Athletics are 7-3 as an underdog, including 7-1 as a home dog. Back Oakland.
