After last night’s poop sandwich of a game unraveled at the seams, the Mariners have found themselves in desperate need of a win against the Boston Red Sox. Just three games back of a playoff spot, the Mariners still won’t be particularly likely to make the cut if they win. If they lose, though, that difficult task would become nearly impossible.
One thing today’s game a bit easier than last night’s: Jake Bauers is not DHing!
Fittingly, Marco Gonzales finds himself in a position to seal a win for the Mariners when they most need it. Whatever a “Tanner Houck” is will attempt to shut down the, ah, formidable Mariner lineup.
