Six in a row, two back, eight left. Numbers are swirling in everyone’s heads as the season dwindles down.
The Evil Empire may have trounced the Boston, but the Mariners gameplan remains simple: run the table or die trying. If that means intentionally walking Shohei Ohtani thrice or more in a game, so be it.
The M’s have the stalwart Tyler Anderson on the mound, who oddly enough, is topping some much flashier SP deadline acquisitions in post-trade ERA:
Tyler Anderson has posted the 2nd-best ERA with his new team among all starters moved at the 2021 trade deadline (min. 10 GS).— Adam Gresch (@adamgresch) September 25, 2021
Max Scherzer-LAD (1.43)
⚾️ Tyler Anderson-SEA (3.38)
Jose Berrios-TOR (3.39)
Rich Hill-NYM (3.48)
J.A. Happ-STL (3.97)
Here’s hoping he’ll give us another solid start. The Mariners PR account hasn’t put up the head-to-head lineup yet, so here are the lineup details in tweet form:
Seven straight sounds nice, doesn’t it?
Game Time: 6:07 Pacific (because Angels)
TV: ROOT Sports NW
Radio: 710 ESPN Seattle
