The Seattle Mariners and New York Mets face off Saturday, with the first pitch scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Citi Field in Queens, New York and will only be available on local TV or via an MLB.tv subscription. Rookie George Kirby (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will make his second start for the Mariners, taking on Mets righty Chris Bassitt (4-2, 2.45 ERA).
Seattle (15-18) took the upper hand in the opener of this interleague series last night to emerge victorious with a 2-1 win. The Mariners were able to break the tie at the top of the eighth when Ty France brought Abraham Toro home with the green RBI single. Drew Steckenrider was able to step onto the mound at the bottom of the ninth and close the door to record his second save of the year.
It was a brief setback for New York (22-12), who still hold a commanding lead at the top of the NL East table. The Mets have recorded just 12 runs in their last four games, so they’ll want to break out of this relative slump immediately. Brandon Nimmo plays his part as he scored two of their five goals in yesterday’s loss.

Tips & Predictions
Moneyline pick: Mets -160
Bassitt has been a solid starter for the Metropolitans this season, averaging six innings per start and one strikeout per inning. Will lead her to a home win here.
Player prop selection: JP Crawford over 0.5 hits (-185)
Bassitt should have a good game for the Mets, but he has to contend with Mariners shortstop JP Crawford, who owns a .350 batting average in 20 career at-bats against him. Pencil in Crawford for at least a hit or two in this one.
