After a disappointing start to the road trip, the Mariners will try to avoid a second straight series loss with a win today. The Reds will be starting Connor Phillips, who was part of the trade package that helped the Mariners net Eugenio Suárez and Jesse Winker, in his major league debut. Bryce Miller gets the start for the Mariners and will look to solve his “big inning” problem that bogged down his last start.
