Silva (7-5, 3.27)           Meche (10-8, 5.04)

Carlos Silva has walked seven batters all year. Seriously. Gil Meche walked six in 4.2 innings on June 30th. Silva also has one of the lowest strikeout rates for an effective pitcher as you'll ever see, so prepare for a bunch of balls in play tonight. Last time he faced the Mariners, he didn't walk or strike out a single batter in seven innings, allowing just one run on nine hits. It'd be great if that didn't happen again.

LET'S GO MARINERS!
