The Seattle Mariners host the San Diego Padres for a two-game series on Tuesday. Seattle represents the American League West division, whereas San Diego is in the National League West. Interestingly, both teams are second in their respective divisions, so a great matchup is expected.
The Mariners sit second in the AL West behind the Houston Astros. They are ahead of the other teams in the division, courtesy of an overall (79-61) record. Both home (38-31) and away (41-30) are well above average going into the final games of the season. Their 7-3 in the last 10 is something to be proud of as they look to continue their streak against the Padres.
"Absolutely incredible finish in front of a sold out crowd" - Mariners
San Diego is also comfortable sitting in the second spot in the NL West, ahead of other teams and behind only the Los Angeles Dodgers. They enjoy humble home (38-31) and away (39-33) records. However, the Padres are 5-5 in the last ten, something they would love to improve on. The Padres are coming off a series loss against the Dodgers, but it is time for them to bounce back.
"Final." - Padres
The two-game series between Seattle and San Diego will be a blockbuster. Both look almost equal on paper. The Mariners need the support of the home crowd in order to lead the team to victory.
