Seattle Mariners Game 29: vs. Minnesota Twins

The Mariners endured a crushing defeat yesterday, as Jason Vargas pitched his ass off and was rewarded with a no decision as Tom Wilhelmsen’s defensive mistake in the 7th inning gave the Twins the lead. Felix Hernandez goes for the Mariners, and for the second time in three starts Felix was handed a crushing no decision in his last start also. On the plus side, John Jaso is playing! But Brendan Ryan is batting No. 2.
