Typically, the info on where to find broadcasts of this game would go at the end of the game thread. Let me instead warn you now that today’s brunch game can only be found (in audiovisual format) on YouTube. Here is an easy hyperlink in that direction.

That means the M’s attempt to avert the sweep will be available to a national crowd and subject to dissection by any number of national broadcasters.

Tyler Anderson, whose performance thus far should not be taken for granted, will lead the way as the Mariners lineup takes on José Urquidy.

Today’s game is somewhere beyond must-win, as the ship already seems to take on enough water to sink with each loss. A win today would at the very least keep that bitter taste of swept up dust out of the team’s mouth and allow them to possibly gain ground on the foundering NYY-BOS-OAK trifecta. A loss... well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Remember: the game is on YouTube at 11:10 Pacific, and you can get there easily from here. If that’s really just not your speed, Rick Rizzs will still be doing his Rick Rizzs thing on 710 ESPN.
