The Los Angeles Angels visit the first place Seattle Mariners in this divisional match-up at Safeco Field. The Angels are 4.5 games back and looking to make a move. Right-hander Garrett Richards (3.26 ERA) has been given the nod to start against Mariners lefty Marco Gonzales (3.28 ERA).
The Mariners pulled off a stunning win against the Rays on Sunday with a throw-out at the plate to end the game and win 17 of their last 22 games.

Both teams will look to either increase or close the gap between them in the AL West race.
Los Angeles Angels's Latest Performance :
The Los Angeles Angels are in the middle of the pack in the hunt for the lead in the AL West behind the surging Houston Astros. Hall of Famer Albert Pujols is moving up in the records books, but his 3 runs couldn’t push the Angels past the Twins on Sunday while superstar Shohei Othani sits on the bench for 3 weeks with an elbow injury.
Once the Angels are healthy, look for them to push the envelope in the West and vie for a solid playoff birth.
Seattle Mariners's Latest Performance :
The first place Seattle Mariners are on a roll winning the last eight of ten games including their last against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday where pitcher James Paxton struck out 10 and the offense blasted a trio of homers. Speaking of pitching, Marco Gonzales has been a welcomed bright spot racking up a 7-3 record in his 13 starts.
While there’s been a bit of concern in the bullpen, manager Scott Jervais isn’t going to panic. There’s plenty of time to work through the issues and keep the team on track.
