The Seattle Mariners are set to take on the Chicago White Sox at home t on the 23d. Both teams have been struggling this year, with low rankings for home runs, WHIP and ERAs across the board.
Seattle Mariners's Latest Performance :
The Mariners were able to win with a score of 2-1, but the final three games in their series last week were a calamity. They were majorly outscored resulting in a 20-4 final tally. Their offense have been at the crux of the problem because of struggles relating to seven runs they let slip across five matches. An average 7.25 rpg for the previous four matches did not help the situation much.
Chicago White Sox's Latest Performance :
The White Sox had been thought of by many as the best pick when considering teams on American League Central. However, the biggest impediment to their success is actually pitching. This is one of the worst ranked teams in the league this year, making it critical that they fix the situation before going on further. They have resulting scores of 4-11 and were really tossed around by the Oakland Athletics. Meanwhile their pitching struggled as thirty runs were allowed in a short three games. This does not make it promising for their competition against the Mariners.
