GAME: Mariners (41-55, 4th, AL West, – 16.5 GB) at Rays (49-46, 3rd, AL East, – 8.5 GB). GAME #: 97. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 7th (Rays lead 5-1). WHEN: Sunday, 10:40 a.m., Tropicana Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Blake Beavan (Seattle, 4-6, 6.06) vs. LHP Matt Moore (Tampa Bay, 6-6, 4.39). STREAKS: Mariners W 1; Rays L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
The Mariners, who exhausted their bullpen to such an extent Friday that they had catcher Miguel Olivo warming up in the 14th inning, used three more relievers Saturday to finish off a 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay, the Mariners’ first in six tries against the Rays this season.
The bullpen could use some help Sunday from starter Blake Beavan, who makes his second start since being recalled from AAA Tacoma. Beavan collected a win Thursday at Kansas City despite allowing five earned runs in six innings.
“I’ve only had one start since I’ve been back, so haven’t had a chance to really get it going yet,” Beavan said Saturday. “My last start was pretty late notice, so I was just trying to go after them. I learned some things from that start, things I could have done a little better in the third inning (when he gave up three runs).
“I need to mix my pitches up a little better. I need to start throwing my change-up more. It’s a good pitch for me. So that’s something I’ll focus on, just take it from what I was doing down there (Tacoma) and working it up here.”
Beavan will face Matt Moore, who beat the Mariners May 1, holding them to one earned run in five innings while recording seven strikeouts.
Speaking of which, the Mariners fanned 32 times in the first two games of the series after whiffing 34 times in four games at Kansas City. When the Mariners played at Tropicana Field May 1-3, they got punched out 38 times, most in a three-game series this season.
