The AL Wild Card round of the 2022 MLB Playoffs continues with Game 2 of the Seattle Mariners vs. Toronto Blue Jays series. The Mariners were victorious in Game 1 thanks to a three-run first inning that saw them take the lead and never look back, leading to a 4-0 victory.

If the Mariners are victorious on Saturday, they'll punch their ticket to a Division Series date with the No. 1-seeded Houston Astros. Can Seattle complete the 2-0 sweep on Saturday? Or will the Blue Jays use the hometown crowd's support to help them force Game 3?

Mariners vs Blue Jays Prediction & Pick

Robbie Ray draws the start for the Mariners against his former team, which could actually be good news for the Blue Jays. Toronto was tied for the ninth-best OPS (.754) against left-handed pitchers this season. Furthermore, Ray has surrendered eight runs on 14 hits over 11.1 innings in his last two outings, indicating that he's in a vulnerable position.

The Blue Jays' roster is too talented to be shut out again, so I expect them to start things off with a bang early on. Throw in the fact that Toronto starter Kevin Gausman has an impressive 2.33 ERA in his last four starts against the Mariners and I like the Blue Jays' chances of winning this one.

Final Score Prediction: Mariners: 2 | Blue Jays: 5

Mariners vs Blue Jays Probable Starting Pitchers

The matchup on the mound for this contest is set with the Seattle Mariners looking to Robbie Ray (12-12, 3.71 ERA) and Kevin Gausman (12-10, 3.35 ERA) taking the ball for the Toronto Blue Jays.
