Harden (2-3, 2.80)          Pineiro (2-3, 5.69)

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.
