Welcome back, everyone! Today, the Seattle Mariners will be squaring off against the San Diego Padres for the second consecutive day. In case you were unable to find your way to a computer or phone yesterday, just know the Mariners squashed everything in their path, beating up on the Padres to the tune of a 13-3 victory. Today, the lineup will look just a teensy bit different:
Some of the bigger things to watch include top prospect Tyler O'Neill getting his first start, Danny Valencia and Carlos Ruiz making their Mariner debuts, and potential future spot starter Chris Heston taking the bump for the first time. They'll be squaring off against former Mariner Zach Lee, who will be making his Padres debut. Guillermo Heredia and Ben Gamel, locked in a battle for the fourth outfielder spot, both get the start, as well.
