Wade Miley vs. Cody Anderson vs. Beards

The thing is, you have to score runs and hold the other team to fewer runs and do that for at least nine innings to win a baseball game. So even though James Paxton threw a gem, and Edwin Diaz made us all remember that prospects actually can be fun, the Mariners did not win last night. Hopefully they will win tonight, because sitting four games back of Texas is less good than being tied for first place and sitting five back would be worse, and hey, you gotta start somewhere.

This doesn't help, though:

Today's Lineups

Rajai Davis - CF Norichika Aoki - CF
Jason Kipnis - 2B Seth Smith - LF
Francisco Lindor - SS Robinson Cano - 2B
Mike Napoli - 1B Nelson Cruz - RF
Carlos Santana - DH Kyle Seager - 3B
Jose Ramirez - LF Dae-Ho Lee - 1B
Yan Gomes - C Adam Lind - DH
Juan Uribe - 3B Steve Clevenger - C
Lonnie Chisenhall - RF Shawn O'Malley - SS
Cody Anderson - RHP Wade Miley - LHP

Cody Anderson's is less than great against left handed hitting. How much less than great?

You know who has some lefties in their line up? These goofy Mariners. They have Robbie, and Kyle, and Adam, and Norichika, and Seth, and Steve, and Ketel Shawn when he so chooses. Go score some runs, you guys. Preferably more than one, and at least enough to win.

Wade Miley is making his first appearance since giving up approximately one million runs in San Diego. Don't do that again, Wade. It was stressful.
