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.
