Tonight the Mariners seek to extend their seven-game winning streak, the longest active streak in the majors, but they’ll have to get past the White Sox and Mike Clevinger to do it. The Mariners do get Julio Rodríguez back after his off-day yesterday. Bryan Woo will make the start, coming off the IL after dealing with some mild forearm inflammation.
In case you missed today’s news, the Mariners signed Luke Weaver to a one-year deal and transferred Emerson Hancock to the 60-day IL. More details in the blurb here.
Today’s Game Info
Today is the last evening game of the Central time zone of this roadtrip and the last 5:10 start for a while. Dave Sims and Ryan Rowland-Smith will have the TV broadcast on ROOT Sports NW, and on the radio, Rick Rizzs and Gary Hill Jr. will call the game for 710 AM Seattle Sports. Remember that tomorrow is an 11:10 start before Thursday’s off-day and a big weekend series at home.
Today in Mariners History
- 1992: Bret Boone hits his first MLB home run vs. Boston.
- 2003: Shigetoshi Hasegawa sets a new Mariners record for most consecutive scoreless innings by a reliever with 28.2.
- 2014: Félix Hernández sets a Mariners record in the most Félix way, becoming the first pitcher in Mariners history to record six consecutive seasons with 200+ strikeouts, as the offense handed him a no-decision over 5.2 innings (they did come from behind with a five-run ninth inning to defeat the Red Sox at Fenway, 5-3).
