The underdog Athletics hold the pitching edge today, as Dinardo has a great 2.41 ERA this season while Washburn is struggling. Look for an upset here.
Believe it or not, Lenny Dinardo of the Oakland Athletics is statistically one of the best starting hurlers in all of the American League this season.
Dinardo has just a 2.41 ERA in over 78 inning of work this year, giving the Athletics a great chance to win every time he takes the ball. He is 2-1 over his last three starts with a 1.45 ERA. On the flip side, Jarrod Washburn of the Seattle Mariners is winless in his last three starts with a 6.00 ERA.
The A’s are 4-1 in their last five games following a loss, as well as 24-9 the last 33 times they played a fourth game of a series. The Mariners are 1-4 in Washburn's last five starts vs. American League West.
Bet Dinardo and the Athletics at this nice price today.
