Chris Young vs. Nathan Eovaldi.

Loading Scores

This afternoon, the Mariners will take on the Marlins in Florida for the second time in franchise history and first series in nearly a decade. It will also mark the first time that they set foot in Marlins Park and, consequently, the first opportunity they get to take a whack at the center field monstrosity of a home run machine.

Following a shaky season debut, Chris Young is looking to redeem himself -- and Seattle's win-loss column -- with a second start. He lasted six innings in a 3-0 loss to the A's earlier this week, allowing four hits, three walks, and two strikeouts to 25 batters. With the way Iwakuma, Paxton, and Maurer are progressing, however, there should be little reason for concern should things go south.

Facing the Mariners' lineup is right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, who is off to a pristine start with a league-leading 2.07 FIP, 19 strikeouts, and just one walk in 19 innings pitched. Fortunately for the M's, Eovaldi has been treated to minimal run support over his first three starts, and barring an explosive 11-2 win against the Nationals, the Marlins have lost nine of their last 10 games.
