Hisashi Iwakuma faces off against Bartolo Colon, as the Mariners attempt to complete their first sweep of the season.

Doug Pensinger

Happy Father's Day everyone.

Iwakuma steps up against Bartolo Colon, who still somehow manages to be not only relevant, but good. Colon doesn't strike anybody out anymore (5.28 K/9) but his control has been pinpoint (1.08/9) and sports a 2.92 ERA/3.34 FIP. Iwakuma will go for the Mariners' first sweep of the season, taking his 2nd best 1.79 ERA with him.

The Mariners head to Anaheim after this afternoon for four game against the Angels, then it's back to Safeco for another three against Oakland. Yeah, it's that time of the season.
