Los Angeles has been subpar at home, carrying a 32-40 record at Angel Stadium, while Seattle has been solid away from home, going 41-31. The Mariners have won six of their previous eight meetings at Angel Stadium. Seattle holds the second wild card spot but could finish in the first spot. The Toronto Blue Jays currently hold that spot over the Mariners by 1.5 games.

Shohei Ohtani, who is 12-8 with a 2.55 ERA over 24 starts, will likely take the hill Saturday for Los Angeles. He has been spectacular this year, especially from the mound, and will be matched up with an average Mariners lineup on Saturday.

Recently the Japanese right-hander has been unhittable, allowing just two earned runs in his past 20 innings. Ohtani has been extremely consistent, and in his home park this year, he's holding a fabulous 2.19 ERA. He's been great against Seattle in his career, never allowing more than two earned runs in a single start. Expect him to continue that dominance on Saturday.

Seattle could trot out George Kirby, who is carrying a 7-3 record, 2.98 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Last start, he was solid, going six innings, allowing three hits and no earned runs, fanning six.

The Seattle rookie has been excellent away from home this year, holding a 2.86 road ERA. LA's lineup isn't very deep, and Kirby has already succeeded against them this year in three outings. Expect him to go toe to toe with Ohtani as his club looks to even the series.

Both pitchers can shut down lineups, especially Ohtani, who has been one of the better hurlers in the MLB this year. Expect a low-scoring game early on after last night's offensive barrage.
