Hisashi Iwakuma and the Mariners go for their first series sweep in Arlington since 2002.

I hope you are doing something exciting with your 4th of July holiday beyond boarding up your windows and bathing in the cold light of the television to watch yet another baseball game. But thankfully, we have a nice bunch of people on our local baseball team here, and they've decided to help those of you (like me!) who don't get to enjoy any holiday festivities by putting themselves in place to win a series of baseball games. So thoughtful!

Hisashi Iwakuma is looking for his first win since June 10th, and I can't think of a better place and time for our beloved Japanese import to get it than in the middle of the American heartland on the evening of said nation's independence day holiday. This team has never been one for tact, though, has it?
