MLB Thursday

41-27 +16,990

Seattle Mariners at Boston Red Sox
The Mariners Ace will take the mound to prevent the sweep in Boston. Felix Hernandez aka King Felix has been all that with 11-4 record, 6 quality starts in last 7 games, 9 quality starts in 12 road starts and 7 of his 11 wins have come on the road.  Felix has already beaten the Red Sox on July 8th 11-4 in 7 inning 2 run performance. But that win over Boston at Safeco was the lone win in the Boston series. After that the M's went on 8 game winning streak, caught two weak teams and Cleveland, two 1 run wins, to take the series. Now that's ended the Mariners have logged 2-5 record.  Red Sox at Fenway is a different animal from what the Mariners saw in Seattle. Tough as nails when Sox are favored, 41-17 in 58 games, 26-10 at -110 to -150, 23-9 in home games. Ryan Dempster faced the Mariners July 11 getting a No Decision, 8-7 Boston winner, and Ryan has not been quality 3 games in a row, but the Red Sox has pulled out winners in all of them. King Felix maybe the better pitcher tonight, but Felix is a money losing pitcher for the Mariners, 4-12 against winning teams, 1-5 following a previous team loss.  Mariners are 0-5 in last 5 meet in Boston.

BOSTON RED SOX -108 for 1 unit(W)
Wow! Thank the Baseball Gods
