Seattle's offense has been stagnant recently with two straight losses, but they'll have their ace on the mound when they start game one. Felix Hernandez has been his usual, dominant innings-eating self for Seattle so far this season with a 3-2 record and a 2.29 ERA, as usual needing more help from the Mariners offense more often than he's been getting. He'll face off with Ubaldo Jimenez from the Indians, currently struggling through the season with a 5.18 ERA and more walks than strike outs.
Ubaldo will be glad to know that they're facing a team that has been awful on the road, with 10 losses in their last 11 road matches.
The game will be at Progressive Field at 7:05 p.m. ET.
