Roenis Elias has only made 2 starts on the season and he is looking for his first win tonight. In his last outing he gave up 3 earned runs in 6 innings of work in a 4-3 loss to the Houston Astros. The Mariners have lost both games this season when Elias has gotten the start and they are 2-6 in their last 8 games when he is on the hill. C.J. Wilson has been solid as of late giving up 1 earned run in each of his last 2 starts. In his last outing he went 7 innings only allowing 1 earned run, but got no run support and the Angels lost to the San Francisco Giants. While the Angels are only 2-6 in their last 8 games when Wilson has gotten the start they are 13-3 in their last 16 home games when he has gotten the nod. In the last 4 games he has faced the Mariners the total has gone Under every time.
Wilson has been pitching well as of late, but his offense has not helped him out much. They may not give him many runs tonight, but he will still have a good outing and the Angels will win this game and take the series.
