Seattle Mariners Game 30: vs. Minnesota Twins

The Mariners beat the hell out of the Twins last night. Tonight is the rubber match, and here to win the rubber match… Hector Noesi! I think Noesi will end up being good. He hasn’t been good so far though. he has walked too many batters, hasn’t struck out enough batters, and he’s given up too many homeruns. The command that made me think he’d be a good pitcher hasn’t happened yet. Let’s hope it does soon.
