The Seattle Mariners take on the Kansas City Royals in game two of a three game series. Can they take the series and make it 8 of 9 series wins?

The Mariners came out swinging in game one with 6 runs on 11 hits. Luke Raley had a three hit night with a two run home run. Ty France added some insurance late with a two run home run of his own. George Kirby went 7 innings giving up zero runs and striking out six. Munoz came in the eighth and bailed out Ryne Stanek for a four out save. Mariners take game one 6-2.

The Mariners look to make it 8 of 9 series wins with a win in game two vs the Royals. The Mariners have been on an absolute tear since they lost 2 of 3 to the Chicago Cubs. They have gone 17-9 since and hold a 1.5 game lead in the AL West.

Jorge Polanco left last nights game with a tight hamstring.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Logan Gilbert gets the nod for the Mariners as he looks to rebound from his last start against the Minnesota Twins. In his last start he went 4 innings giving up 8 runs, a game that was by far his worst of the season. Gilbert comes into tonight's game with a 2.94 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 54 strikeouts.
  • Michael Wacha will go for the Royals in game two of the series. Michael Wacha hasn't been that good this year. He owns a 5.15 ERA, 1.44 WHIP with 37 K's, Wacha likes to throw his changeup 33.1% of the time and his four seam fastball 25.1%, he also throws a sinker and cutter. Wacha has walked 15 batters on the year and given up 4 long balls. I'm predicting Julio hits a home run tonight.
