Mariners Vs. Angels: M's Look To Salvage Series Against Jered Weaver

After taking the loss in the first two games of the series, the Seattle Mariners are looking to close out their set with the Los Angeles Angels on a high note at Safeco Field.

Reliever Hisashi Iwakuma (5-3, 3.40) has been getting more comfortable since moving to the rotation in early July, posting a 4-1 record with a 1.99 ERA in his last eight starts, including tossing six scoreless in his last outing against the Twins. Iwakuma had a nice showing last time against the Angels, allowing three runs on six hits in seven innings pitched en route to a 7-4 win on August 11.

The Halos will counter with ace Jered Weaver (16-3, 2.85 ERA), who is struggling a bit as of late with a 1-2 record and a 6.75 ERA over his last four starts. He's been successful against the M's though, posting a 6-1 with a 1.07 ERA over his last ten starts until a 4-1 home loss to them on Aug. 12.

First pitch is set for 1:10 p.m. PT with coverage on Fox Northwest and 710 ESPN.
