One Moore win, please!

The upside-down dab is the new, hip dance move that is sweeping the nation!

Wow, guys! What a game last night! Taking the first two off the Red Sox is really fun. What do you say we take this momentum, bust out the brooms, and sweep the Sox! Should be easy enou- oh wait, Chris Sale is pitching.

This fella already has 200 strikeouts, and is running a 1.96 FIP. In his last two outings, he's amassed 22 strikeouts without allowing a single run. Here's me trying to convince myself that since he hasn't allowed a run in about 14 innings, he must due. Do the deed, Mariners!

Here are the lineups.

Today's Lineups

Brock Holt - RF Jean Segura - SS
Andrew Benintendi - LF Ben Gamel - LF
Dustin Pedroia - 2B Nelson Cruz - DH
Hanley Ramirez - DH Danny Valencia - 1B
Jackie Bradley - CF Kyle Seager - 3B
Mitch Moreland - 1B Guillermo Heredia - CF
Xander Bogaerts - SS Mitch Haniger - RF
Sandy Leon - C Carlos Ruiz - C
Rafael Devers - 3B Danny Espinosa - 2B
Chris Sale - LHP Andrew Moore - RHP

With Robinson Cano out of the lineup, Danny Espinosa will get his first start as a Mariner. Fun fact: Espinosa has a career 104 wRC+ against lefties. Now we have two infielders named Danny who hit lefties well. How do you like them apples?

Whether you're heading to Safeco to watch this one live or enjoying it from home, let's get loud and proud. Nothing is sweeter than sweeping the Sox. Let's do this. Go M's.
