San Diego vs Seattle: Mariners King Felix Hernandez Battles Padres
San Diego pays tribute to Tony “Mr Padre” Gwynn
A somber mood will envelope Petco Park tonight as the Padres play their first home game following the sad passing of “Mr Padre” Tony Gwynn. A lifetime .338 hitter, who spent his entire 20-year career in San Diego, Gwynn succumbed to oral cancer on Monday at the age of just 54 – far too young. The 2014 MLB season has not been kind to the Friers as their 29-42 record has them 14 games behind the SF Giants in the NL West.
Seattle Mariners: The King is ready to deal in Southern California
Seattle aims for a fourth straight victory as they head into SoCal tonight. The Mariners (37-34) are enjoying a decent June run as they have posted a 10-6 record and will have their inning-eating ace on the bump in this contest. Felix Hernandez (8-2 ERA 2.29) has gone at least seven innings in his last six starts and has allowed just seven earned runs, to go with 52 strikeouts, over 47 innings pitched. We like The King to rule here.
MLB Prediction: Mash with the Mariners and a 500 unit money line wager at the bet365 sportsbook.
