Mariners Game Today: Mariners vs Twins Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV Channel for April 9th
It’s time for the second game of the season, as the Mariners were able to win the season opener against Minnesota thanks to a first-inning two-run homer by Mitch Haniger. It ended up being the only runs that the Mariners would score all day, but thanks to a strong outing by Robbie Ray, it was all that they needed for a 2-1 win.
Chances are we are going to see a bit more offense today. Robbie Ray is one of just two pitchers so far this year to go seven innings in a start, while the Twins have said they they don’t expect any of their starters to go further than four or five innings in any start.

Mariners Pitcher Today: Logan Gilbert
If Gilbert can keep up his stamina and velo, as he showed in spring training, then it could turn out to be a stellar year for the Mariners second-youngest starting pitcher. His slider was up to 90-91 after sitting at 83.4 mph in 2021. He’s gonna have his hands full against Minnesota, as keeping those bats quiet two days in a row isn’t easy.
Mariners Starting Lineup
A couple of the big takeaways from today’s lineup. Abraham Toro is starting at third giving Eugenio Suarez the day off. Kelenic and Winker switch positions, with Winker heading to DH and Kelenic going to LF. Murphy is also behind the plate today.
Mariners vs Athletics Prediction Today
After a quiet day with the bats, we see them start to heat up a little. The Mariners find another long ball early on from Winker, but the Twins answer with a blast from Sano. Sitting at 6-4 going into the 8th, the Twins get two runners on, but fail to capitalize. They get the leadoff runner on in the 9th, but a strikeout and double play finish them off, and the M’s take the second game of the series.
