Erasmo Ramirez vs. Jordan Lyles

Rick Yeatts

So...uh...did you hear about tomorrow? Yeah, me too. But alas, there is another game of baseball to be played today. A game featuring a sort of familiar lineup with Nick Franklin still struggling in the two hole, and Dustin Ackley alone on base in the eighth. A game not featuring Michael Morse, who was claimed on waivers by the Orioles and may be wearing white an orange in 24 hours, but also may just end the season napping on the dugout bench. A game also without Kendrys Morales, who was pulled off waivers around the time the Morse news broke, but will more than likely pinch hit for Raul when the Mariners are inevitably down late in the game facing left handed relief pitching.

I know you're excited about tomorrow. I am too. But today we have Erasmo and Brad Miller and Kyle Seager! They will also be playing against Jason Castro and Brandon Barnes, who will probably be playing the Mariners in Astros uniforms for a long time! Excitement! Baseball!

Mariners:

P. Erasmo Ramierez (R)
