Live Game Thread 17 – Seattle Mariners (7-9) at Miami Marlins (7-10)


Thanks for joining our Live Game Thread as the Mariners take on the Marlins in Miami. The Seattle Mariners lost last night in heartbreaking fashion once again, with a walk-off grand slam to Giancarlo Stanton after coming from behind to tie the game twice.

Today, Roenis Elias goes for his second win of the season as he takes the hill against the Marlins.

We saw another game lost in part to the reinterpretation of the transfer rule. That may change soon. At least Mariners fans can hope.

Here are today’s lineups:
