According to STATS

Los Angeles Dodgers at Seattle Mariners

  1. The Dodgers won three of four meetings with Seattle last season and are 10-2 in the last 12 games of the series overall. Los Angeles has averaged 6.9 runs per game over those 12 games while allowing 3.4.
  2. The Dodgers had won eight in a row before Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Padres. Their 13-3 record is tied for the second best in franchise history through 16 games (14-2 in 1955), and is the best since they were 13-3 in 1981.
  3. The Mariners allowed 6.1 runs per game over their first seven games this season, going 3-4, compared to 3.3 per game over their last nine (7-2 record). They have an MLB-low .195 batting average allowed since April 10.
  4. Mitch Haniger is tied for second in the AL with 13 runs scored (Mark Canha, Oak -- 18) and tied for third with 14 RBI. The only other AL player with at least 13 of each is Boston's J.D. Martinez.
  5. Justin Turner is the fifth Dodger since the franchise moved to Los Angeles in 1958 to have at least five homers, 15 RBI and a .400 batting average through the team's first 16 games of the season. The others are Ron Cey (1977), Matt Kemp (2012), Adrian Gonzalez (2015) and Cody Bellinger (2019).
  6. Over his last 10 outings including the 2020 postseason, Dustin May is 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA with 32 strikeouts and just one home run allowed in 25.0 innings pitched.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 4/19/2021 thru 4/20/2021

The surprising Seattle Mariners, who share the best record in the American League with the Boston Red Sox at 11-6, could get a significant boost when they wrap up a two-game series with the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday afternoon.

Kyle Lewis, the reigning American League Rookie of the Year who has yet to play this season because of a bone bruise on his right knee, is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list and be in the starting lineup, manager Scott Servais said.

Lewis, who sustained the injury running into an outfield wall late in spring training, played five innings of an intrasquad game at the team's alternative training site Monday morning and appears set for his season debut.

"He felt really good coming out of the game (Monday)," Servais said. "He is all systems go. ... Unless he would come in completely sore and something totally that we're not expecting, we're expecting him out there in the lineup (Tuesday)."

Rookie Taylor Trammell has been patrolling center field in Lewis' absence. Trammell went 2-for-3 with a home run and an RBI double Monday in Seattle's 4-3 victory against the Dodgers, who have the best record in baseball at 13-4. Jose Marmolejos added a two-run homer for the Mariners.

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, playing against his older brother Kyle, hit a two-run shot to straightaway center field. However, he grounded into a double play with two runners on to end the game.

The Dodgers failed to lead at any point in a game for the first time this season and are now on their first losing streak of 2021 -- two games.

"We had the winning run on first base in the ninth inning," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "I thought we just got behind the 8-ball a little bit."

Both teams could be without players Tuesday after they were hit by pitches in the series opener.

Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts was nailed with a 95 mph fastball from Rafael Montero on the inside of his right forearm in the ninth inning, but he stayed in the game. The team said Betts would undergo some tests, and an update on his status was expected Tuesday.

"Obviously Mookie's going to want to be in there," Roberts said. "Gotta make sure it doesn't affect his throwing or his swing. He's pretty honest with me. If he feels like he can play, he'll be in there."

Seattle's Ty France exited the Monday game with a right forearm contusion after getting clipped with a 98 mph fastball from Dustin May in the fifth inning. X-rays were negative, the Mariners announced.

The series finale is set to be a matchup of left-handers, as the Dodgers' Julio Urias (2-0, 3.86 ERA) will oppose the Mariners' Marco Gonzales (1-1, 8.22).

Each pitcher has faced the opposition once in his career, without a decision, on consecutive days last August. Gonzales pitched seven innings and allowed one run on five hits with no walks and nine strikeouts against Los Angeles on Aug. 19. A day later, Urias lasted only 1 2/3 innings vs. Seattle and allowed one run on four hits. He fanned five and walked one.
