Happy Felix Day! On this, the first King's Court of the year, let us hope for a dominant performance on the mound against the A's, and some blistering M's bats against their hound dog, Chris Bassit.
|OAKLAND A'S||SEATTLE MARINERS|
|Coco Crisp - CF||Norichika Aoki - LF|
|Chris Coghlan - 3B||Kyle Seager - 3B|
|Josh Reddick - RF||Robinson Cano - 2B|
|Stephen Vogt - DH||Nelson Cruz - RF|
|Jed Lowrie - 2B||Adam Lind - 1B|
|Khris Davis - LF||Seth Smith - DH|
|Yonder Alonso - 1B||Ketel Marte - SS|
|Josh Phegley - C||Steve Clevenger - C|
|Marcus Semien - SS||Leonys Martin - CF|
|Chris Bassitt - RHP||Felix Hernandez - RHP|
Felix is 7-1 with a 2.60 ERA in his last 11 starts against the A's. Bassit looked good his first start of the year against the White Sox before giving up a run shot late in the game, and taking a no-decision.
In addition to their first home win, the Mariners bats will look to rebound a bit.

This covers the teeny-tiniest of sample sizes, so take it with several early season grains of salt, but giving the left-handed bats an afternoon of easier hitting sounds nice. Doesn't that sound nice?
Happy Felix Day. Happy Sunday. May it be filled with sunshine and lollipops, and a Mariners win to avoid the sweep.
