The Toronto Blue Jays host the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, May 17th at the Rogers Centre. The first pitch in this matchup is scheduled for 7:07 ET. The MLB Odds Board has yet to place odds for tonight’s game.

Recent Form

The Mariners will be looking to bounce back from dropping game 1 of their series vs Toronto by a score of 6-2. In the game, Chris Flexen went 5.1 innings, giving up 3 earned runs. Flexen was able to rack up 7 strikeouts. Eugenio Suarez went 1-3, including 2 runs and 1 RBI.

Before their most recent loss to Toronto, the Mariners are coming off a big series win over the Mets, taking 2 out of 3 games. Each game of that series with New York was decided by just 1 run.

Last night, the Toronto Blue Jays picked up their 19th win of the season. Starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi lasted 6 scoreless innings. This includes picking up 6 strikeouts while giving up just 1 hit. Bo Bichette and Alejandro Kirk each drove in 2 runs for the Jays, with Bichette racking up 3 hits in his 5 at bats.

The Blue Jays’ win over Seattle was their 2nd in their past 3 games. This was a much-needed victory, as the team is looking to recover from a 5 game losing streak. This slump spanned across their series’ vs the Guardians, Yankees, and Rays.

Pitching Matchup

The Seattle Mariners will be hoping for another quality start from right-hander Logan Gilbert. For the year, Gilbert has gone 4-1, with an ERA of just 2.13. On the season, he has just 14 walks compared to 42 strikeouts. Opposing hitters have a combined batting average of just .203, putting his season-long WHIP of 1.11. In his last outing against Philadelphia, Gilbert took the loss, giving up 4 runs in 5 innings.

As Jose Berrios prepares for his 8th start of the season, he will hope to bring down his ERA of 5.82. Last year, he finished with an ERA of 3.58 for the Blue Jays. Home runs have been an issue for Berrios, as he has already given up 6 deep shots. Overall, he has 11 walks compared to 24 K’s. Last time out, he struggled against the Yankees, giving up 5 runs in 5.1 innings pitched.

Seattle Mariners at Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

Even though the Blue Jays appear to be getting back on track after their recent losing streak, I expect the Mariners to pick up the win. Both starting pitchers picked up the loss in their last outing, but I expect Logan Gilbert to have a better bounce-back effort. I recommend taking Seattle on the monyeline, getting +110.
