Riding a fleet of snowspeeders seven-game home winning streak, the Resistance Mariners get ready to do battle at Hoth Safeco Field tonight against the Brewers. Emperor Palpatine Craig Counsell's Imperial Stormtroopers mediocre baseball team marches in having lost five in a row, and Sith Lord "Wily Wily" Peralta will try to end that streak against Jedi Knight "King Felix" Hernandez.

And, in case the references above weren't enough to get your attention, Return of the Jedi will be shown on the Safeco Jumbotron after the game! This doesn't really matter to any of us unless you want to queue it up on Netflix, but playing the movie on such a huge screen will be quite a show of Force.

Puns aside, let's get to the lineups.
