MLB Odds: Mariners -114 / Indians +106 (Total: 8)

The Mariners have had atrocious pitching in this series, and the last man that you figured to come up with a bad performance was the one that was run out of Sunday’s game, Felix Hernandez. Now, Seattle is going to have another one of these games with a great pitcher on the mound. Hisashi Iwakuma is 5-1 on the season, and he has an unbelievable 0.78 WHIP through 58.2 innings of work. This righty has been outstanding all season long, and he hasn’t had a bad start to his credit. Scott Kazmir is going to be getting the baseball for the Indians in this one, and he is going to be up against an offense that hasn’t done all that much of late. Though Kazmir has clearly pitched better this year than most figured that he would, he is still letting far too many men on base, and he is one of our favorite men to fade on a regular basis on the diamond. Between the great start that Iwakuma is off to and the fact that Kazmir is still a gas can as we see it, we have to back Seattle in the final game of this series to swipe a game and at least get out of Cleveland with a shred of dignity.
