The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners square off on Saturday with first pitch set for 10.10 pm. The game takes place at T-Mobile Park in Seattle and will be available to watch on ESPN+. Reid Detmers (3-3, 3.62 ERA) will get the start for the Angels as the Mariners counter with Chris Flexen (7-8, 3.73 ERA) on the hill.
Los Angeles (45-61) will get a another chance to knock off Seattle in this one as they meet for a Saturday doubleheader. The Angels have notably underwhelmed this season but flipped the script with a win in the series opener that went into the 10th inning. Detmers has been solid for Los Angeles this season and most recently came away with an immaculate inning against the Texas Rangers last Sunday.
Seattle (57-50) is in second place in the AL West and has its sights set on making the postseason for the first time since 2001. The Mariners have a great shot at keeping pace in the tight race within the AL Wild Card as they look to Flexen to bring home a win Saturday night. He’ll have an advantage with the Angels lineup. Los Angeles has the highest strikeout rate in MLB at 26.1%.

Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Mariners -1.5 (+155)
Run total: 7
Moneyline odds: Angels +120, Mariners -140
Moneyline pick: Mariners -140
I’m placing my trust in Flexen in this one. The Mariners have won seven of their last 10 games and Flexen has performed well during that timespan. He has given up less than two runs per start in his last seven starts and combined with Los Angeles’ struggles at the plate, it sets up a win for Seattle in this one. Take the favorites to bounce back accordingly.
Player prop pick: Jesse Winker over 0.5 hits (-165)
Entering Saturday’s doubleheader, Winker had three hits in the last four games. He notched a hit in his first at-bat of Game 1 as well. The outfielder is seeing the ball well and carries a .286 average in the last 21 at-bats entering today’s doubleheader. Back him to snag at least one hit in Game 2.
