Rickenbach MLB *8* OVER 8.5 in Minnesota vs Seattle @ 7:10 ET - These teams combined to stay under the total yesterday but, previously, the over was on a 8-1-1 run in the Mariners last 10 games and a 6-0 run in Twins games! Those hot "over trends" will quickly resume here with this pitching match-up leading to runs early and often in this one. The Mariners Mike Montgomery had a great start to this season but the rookie's fade has been on since the calendar hit July. The Seattle southpaw is winless with a 7.09 ERA in his last four starts. The Twins have averaged 5.1 runs per game this season in games where they faced a left-handed starter and Montgomery has allowed 4 homers in his last 3 starts plus he's struggled with command of his pitches. Montgomery has walked 12 batters in his last 15 and 1/3 innings of work. Another rough outing is on tap for him here but his counterpart will also struggle this evening. The Twins are sending Kyle Gibson the mound tonight. The Minnesota right-hander has been crushed for six earned runs in each of his last two starts! The Mariners, striking for another 6 runs in yesterday's win, have averaged 5 runs per game in their last 11 games. They will pound Gibson who continues to struggle with letting the leadoff man in an inning get on base way too often. He's then forced to pitch out of the stretch and this has been a key part of the struggles for Gibson recently. That continues here against a red-hot Mariners lineup. Play OVER 8.5 runs in Minnesota as an *8* selection Saturday.
