The Mariners will head to Boston for a short two-game series. They'll hope to give the Red Sox another early-season headache.
The Seattle Mariners managed to ruin Sunday for New York Yankees fans as they hit a pair of home runs off of the returning Andy Pettitte and picked up a win. The Mariners will try to make life tough for another powerhouse East Coast institution as they head to Fenway Park for a short two-game series against the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox have had much-publicized early season struggles, but have won three straight heading into Monday's game. When the Sox have been bad, they've been very bad. But when they've been good, they've piled on scores of runs in blowout victories. The Mariners will be hoping they can put up some runs of their own in a park that's conducive to a lot of offense.
TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers
On Monday, the game will begin at 4:10 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can catch the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN. Jason Vargas will be trying for his fifth win of the season as he goes up against the 1-3 lefty Jon Lester.
