Hisashi Iwakuma vs Matt Shoemaker

Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Despite churning out a performance akin to a minivan taking on Daytona, the Mariners are still in position to take this weekend's series against the Angels. Today they'll send Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound, a sentence which would have resounded in your ears like hearing the final movement of Handel's Messiah a month or so ago, but which in its own way, after last night, still kind of does. Let's just choose to ignore that 3 IP, 6H 5R 2K performance last time and uh, hey! Look over there!

So onward and upwards as usual. Hopefully more of the latter this time, but well...
