Mariners vs. Athletics: Seattle looks to salvage series on Sunday

The Seattle Mariners dropped the first two games of the series with the Oakland Athletics, but look to salvage the set with a victory on Sunday at the Oakland Coliseum.

Seattle will send out rookie right-hander Erasmo Ramirez (1-3, 3.42). He allowed five runs on seven hits in six innings of work during Tuesday's 5-4 loss at Los Angeles. The 22-year old was 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA over his previous two starts.

The A's will counter with Tommy Milone (13-10, 3.74 ERA), who has posted a 4-1 record with a 2.70 ERA over his previous seven starts. He allowed just two unearned runs on six hits in six innings pitched on Tuesday during the A's 3-2 win against the Rangers in Arlington. Milone is 2-1 with a 2.42 ERA against Seattle this season.

Seattle has lost nine of their last 12 games.

First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT with coverage on Root Sports and 710 ESPN AM.
