Hisashi Iwakuma and the Seattle Mariners take on Jesse Chavez and the Oakland A's in the second of three at Safeco.

So far, the series against Oakland has been what it was hyped up to be. A smash-mouth, emotionally charged battle between two rivals with playoff aspirations backed by an electric crowd. Game one delivered exactly that.

Now it's your turn, game two. Hisashi Iwakuma will toe the rubber today against the team he was originally supposed to sign with when he first defected. Instead, here he is pitching in a big game against that very team. In Kuma's past two starts he's been dominant, allowing just one earned run with 17 strikeouts over 13 innings.* Today would be a good time to continue doing that.

Pitching for the A's tonight will be Jesse Chavez, the terrible-reliever-turned-decent-reliever-turned-dominant-starter (because A's). Interestingly, Chavez' ERA is a hundredth of a point better than Iwakuma's this year (3.06 vs. 3.07). The good news is that the M's have already seen Chavez twice this year, and the second time they managed to tag him for four earned runs in 5.2 innings.

But enough of the numbers mumbo jumbo. Let's kick some ass! Go Mariners.
