Tampa Bay Rays vs Seattle Mariners Sunday MLB Betting Action

We found a couple of tasty treats as we were scanning the Sunday Major League Baseball betting menu. At one of our sister sites,, we discussed how we like CC Sabathia and New York Yankees over the Oakland Athletics today. With this betting update we take a look at the Tampa Bay vs. Seattle contest slated for 1:40 PM ET on Sunday, July 22, 2012, from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. Back the Rays!

Tampa Bay Rays Left To Chase AL Wild Card Playoff Spot

Without their three-time All-Star third baseman Evan Longoria (hamstring) in the lineup, dating back to May 2, Tampa Bay has struggled to keep close to the NY Yankees in the American League East. The Rays, who were were in first place at 16-8 when Longoria went down, are now 8.5 games back of the Evil Empire with a 49-46 record. That said, the Rays are just 1.5 games back in the AL Wild Card race – they win this series today.

Seattle Mariners Struggle Through Another Abysmal MLB Season

Seattle is having another long year as their 41-55 record puts them 16.5 games back of the Rangers in the AL West. The Mariners, who are going to miss the MLB playoff party for an eleventh straight season, are the second worst hitting club in the Majors with a .232 team batting average. RHP Blake Beaven gets the call for the Mariners and he is 4-6 with a 6.06 ERA in 13 starts this season. Opposing hitters are batting .297 against him – ouch!
