A loss would bring the A's up into a tie for third in wins.

Joel's last two starts, the good: 13 IP, 3 R, 1 BB
Joel's last two starts, the bad: 2 K
Pineiro needs to be on his best behavior tonight, as one slip-up could cost him the game. Harden tossed seven shutout innings the last time he faced this lineup, and he's liable to do it again. If he has a flaw, it's having occasional bouts with control, so the Mariners will need to capitalize on his walks and deep counts if they want to come out of this one alive.
LET'S GO MARINERS!
