Starting on the mound for the Mariners will be George Kirby, in his second season and coming off a dominant eight shutout innings against the Yankees in his last start, going up against Michael Wacha for the San Diego Padres, in his eleventh Major League season.
Yesterday saw Eugenio Suárez move down the lineup into the seventh spot where he is again today, and today Jarred Kelenic sees a similar move, dropping from fourth to sixth. The order is different but the players remain the same, with Kolten Wong getting the start at second and Mike Ford at designated hitter, both lefties in to face the right handed Wacha.
