Best Pitcher: Bryce Miller

6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K

After crushing it in his first eight starts, Miller ran into his first major roadblock after conceding a total of ten earned runs in his two starts against the Orioles and Yankees. This was understandable as those are currently two of the best lineups in baseball and he went back to business against the Astros and then the Angels.

He had 12 swings and misses, seven of which were from his four-seam fastball. The team didn't even need his performance to be that dominant in his start, with the Mariners ultimately winning 9-0 but Miller brought his best stuff regardless.

Honorable Mention: Luis Castillo

7.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K

Castillo and Woo both had great starts. In fact, Mariners starters allowed zero earned runs in the three games against the Angels. Castillo just did in a more stylish fashion, with six strikeouts and an incredible 21 swings and misses. 13 of those whiffs were on his four-seam fastball which has already accumulated 10 run value on the season. His slider has also been an effective secondary pitch and has the lowest opponent batting average (.200) among the four different pitches he's thrown this year.
