Seattle Mariners Game 33: vs. Detroit Tigers

In some ways tonight’s matchup is much easier than last night’s for the Mariners. I mean, Justin Verlander can’t pitch for four more days, which makes this game almost inherently easier. Smyly has been good so far this year though, and the Mariners don’t match up well against lefties.
