The Seattle Mariners fell short in Game 1 against the Oakland Athletics despite sending ace Felix Hernandez to the mound. They'll look for a different result in Saturday's game behind Hisashi Iwakuma (6-3, 3.14 ERA).
Iwakuma has been on a hot streak recently, going 3-0 in his last four starts and posting a 0.35 ERA. In his last outing, he struck out seven Angels in 7 1/3 scoreless innings against Los Angeles. The Mariners will need a strong performance from Iwakuma against Brett Anderson (3-0, 0.90 ERA), who takes the hill for the Athletics. Anderson is 4-1 with a 0.96 ERA ins his last seven starts against the Mariners.
