TicketIQ's MLB Game Of The Day (4/13/15)
April 13, 2015
Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Dodgers | Avg. Price: $15 | Get-in Price: $2
James Paxton (0-1, 3.00 ERA) vs Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 7.20 ERA)
Neither the Los Angeles Dodgers nor Seattle Mariners are where they expected to be after six games. The Dodgers are expected to run away with the National League West, while the Mariners are a trendy pick win the American League West. It’s still early in the season, but both teams will come into their third series of the season with a 3-3 record.
Seattle will send youngster James Paxton to the hill, looking for his first win in his second start. In his first start against the Angles, Paxton pitched six innings, gave up four hits, allowed two runs and struck out five. However, that was not enough to make up for a lack of Mariners offense that was shutout by C.J. Wilson.
Brandon McCarthy will get the start for the Dodgers, his second with the team. McCarthy last pitched on April 8 against the San Diego Padres. After giving up an early two runs, McCarthy cruised, striking out nine, before allowing two more runs in the sixth. Such is baseball, as those four earned runs were enough to be covered by the Dodgers offense that scored seven.
Dodgers tickets for this game have an average price of $15 on the secondary market with a get-in price of just $2. This game could be a steal with prices this low and a potential pitchers duel shutting down lineups filled with dangerous hitters like Adrian Gonzalez and Robinson Cano.
