The Mariners will try to shake off last night’s all-around sloppiness with a win in today’s rubber match. The M’s are 8-5 in games that decide a series this year.
- Today is probably the best pitching matchup of the series. That’s not something I ever imagined myself saying about a game featuring Martín Pérez, but life’s full of surprises.
- Curt Casali gets his first action since being acquired from the Giants at the deadline. Hopefully, Scott Servais can resist the temptation to make Cal Raleigh get behind the plate at some point in the late innings.
- Jesse Winker gets the day off, perhaps allowing him to reset after his worst game in a while.
