Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics Live Stream & Tips


The Seattle Mariners take on the Oakland Athletics in an MLB regular-season game on Wednesday, May 26. Both Seattle and Oakland compete in the American League West Division, with the Athletics currently top of that division and the Mariners third. This will be the second of a three match series between these teams. 

On Tuesday Seattle scored something of an upset by defeating Oakland 4-2. This is the first series played out between Seattle and Oakland this season, with some 16 matches spread out over five series’ still to come.  Historically Oakland are one of the greatest teams in MLB, with nine World Series wins, although the most recent was back in 1989. Seattle were only established in 1977 and have made the playoffs on just four occasions. 

Oakland lead the West Division with a record of 28-21, followed by the second-placed Houston Astros, and Seattle in third with a 22-26 record. In fourth place are the Texas Rangers, while the Los Angeles Angels are currently bottom of the division in fifth. 

I’m backing the Seattle Mariners to defeat the Oakland Athletics again on Wednesday.  Oakland have been looking vulnerable lately with 4 defeats in their last 6 games, while the Mariners will be galvanized by Tuesday’s result and full of confidence. 

  • Athletics top of AL West Division
  • Athletics 28-21 season
  • Mariners 3rd in AL West Division
  • Mariners 22-26 this season

Head to Head 


The Seattle Mariners and the Oakland Athletics have played each other 30 times over the past three seasons, with Oakland leading their head-to-head 16-14. The Mariners and the Athletics met 10 times during the shortened 2020 season, with Oakland finishing 6-4 up. In 2019, Seattle and Oakland faced each other 19 times, with Oakland just edging it 10-9. In their only game of 2021 so far, Seattle were the winners 4-2. 

Seattle Mariners Form


This time last month Seattle were top of the American League West Division with a 10-6 record and about to tie a two-game series with the LA Dodgers. After finishing third in 2020, Seattle were looking like a team going places. Unfortunately for the Mariners they couldn’t maintain those standards, and began losing games. Lots of games. 

In fact prior to their shock win over Oakland, Seattle had lost six matches on the bounce, made up of two 3-0 series whitewashes against Detroit and San Diego. The Mariners’ last series win came earlier this month when they defeated the Cleveland Indians 3 games to 1. Previously their last series win was back in mid-April. 

Oakland Athletics Form


The Oakland Athletics are historically one of the legendary teams of Major League Baseball. Their haul of nine World Series championships is bettered only by the St. Louis Cardinals with 11 and the New York Yankees with 27. However, the Oakland A’s haven’t won a World Series since 1989, and these days are better known to younger fans as the “Moneyball” team, thanks to a 2003 book and subsequent film starring Brad Pitt. 

Oakland are the current American League West Division champions, and top the table right now with a 28-21 record, two wins clear of the second-placed Houston Astros.  However, with four defeats in their last six games, Oakland are in need of series win vs Seattle or they could soon be surrendering top-spot to Houston.

Verdict

In the past few weeks the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland Athletics have gone in opposite directions in the AL West Division; the Mariners had been top but 11 defeats in fifteen games saw them slip to third. Meanwhile, after a 1-7 start to the season, the Oakland A’s have clawed their way to the top of the division.
 
It was therefore a bit of an upset when Seattle – on a six-match losing streak – defeated the Athletics 4-2 on Tuesday. However, I’m backing the Mariners to prove Tuesday’s result was no fluke by turning the trick again and winning by a similar run margin in a matchup that will feature around ten runs in total.
 
Seattle will be fired up after Tuesday’s win, while Oakland – with four defeats in their last six games – are struggling with form and confidence.
