The Mariners try to bounce back after an opening-series loss against the powerful Twins

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Seattle Mariners
let’s hope for more of this tonight and less of that other stuff

If you like pitching, tonight is the game for you, as two budding aces face off on the bump.


* Update, 6:33 PM: J.P. Crawford is a late scratch from the lineup. Sam Haggerty will start in LF instead, with Moore switching over to shortstop. Haggerty will slot in at the nine-hole and Frazier moves to the top of the order.

The sleepy Mariners offense will have a tall task in fringe ROY contender Joe Ryan. As Jake noted in the series preview, Ryan’s stuff doesn’t jump off the page, but he’s exactly the kind of pitcher the Mariners hitters have struggled with this year, with a deep arsenal and excellent command.

Tonight it’ll be Logan Gilbert’s turn to attempt to hold off the powerful Twins lineup while the offense attempts to find its footing. Jesse Winker gets a day off for the first time in a while, surprising with a righty on the mound and the Mariners stacking lefties in their lineup but it’s getting to be that time of year where people need days off.

News and Updates:

Here’s hoping Steckenrider can correct whatever has been going wrong for him and bounce back with the Rainiers, who if you’ve been keeping up with the Midshipmen’s Log, you’ll know are red-hot right now:
