Tonight in Seattle, the premiere of “Mariners vs. Angels 665: Demonic Prelude”.

Coming in on a blazing hot six-game losing streak, the Mariners will face the Angels for the 665th time in franchise history. This brings the Angels (362-302 record vs. the M’s) to an even tie with Texas (339-326) for most games played against Seattle. Today also marks the first time in history that the Angels will play a game on the same day they DFA’d Matt Harvey.

Kris Negrón starts in left, and Justin Upton is out for the Angels. After writing 664 of these scripts, the writers get a little bored. They can’t all be as good as “Mariners vs. Angels 304: Everybody Scores!”
