We apologize for the tardiness of this game thread. You can blame Zach Sanders and his undying love of the biz. Also holding us up: the fact that the Mariners were good and had their lineup in early like good students, and the Indians left theirs blank for like ever, prompting a ton of “hyuk well I like their chances today” jokes on Twitter.

Iwakuma gets the start and will hopefully look a wee bit less hittable than he did last time. Other pitchers who are available: Miranda, Fien, Kiekhefer, Pazos, Curtis, Weber, Anthony MiescewishICouldSpellHisLastName, Tyler Herb.
Also, FYI, per Divish:
