WHEN: Tuesday, 7:05 p.m., Angels Stadium, Anaheim, CA. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (Seattle, 1-2, 3.28) vs. RHP Zach Greinke (Los Angeles, 14-5, 3.47). STREAKS: Mariners L 1; Angels W 3. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: ESPN 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network
The Mariners launched the 2012 season with a pair of games against the Oakland Athletics at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. Now, they begin their last road trip of the year, a six-game journey through Anaheim (three games) and Oakland (three games) before returning to Safeco Field for the final three games of the season against the Los Angeles Angels.
Erasmo Ramirez, who has a chance to figure prominently in Seattle’s 2013 rotation, will start for Seattle Tuesday night against the Angels. He will oppose Zach Greinke, a former American League Cy Young winner in a game in which nothing is at stake except another evaluation by the Mariners of Ramirez’s fitness for next year’s rotation. A closer look:
MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (1-2, 3.28 ERA, 0.96 WHIP)
The 22-year-old Ramirez, in his first major league season, will make his seven start, his third since his recall from AAA Tacoma, and his first against the Angels. Ramirez, who has had a pair of relief appearances since his recall, is coming off a no-decision in Seattle’s 4-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Sept. 18 at Safeco Field.
A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.
That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.
Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.
After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter. When the Mariners had seen enough of Blake Beavans troubles, they farmed him out and recalled Ramirez June 12.
During Ramirezs June 30 start against Boston, Ramirez suffered a right flexor elbow strain and had to come out of the game. The Mariners subsequently placed him on the 15-day disabled list. When he was healthy enough to pitch, he was sent to Tacoma. In 15 starts for the Rainiers, Ramirez went 6-3, 3.72. Ramirez worked one inning of relief against Oakland Sept. 7.
- LAST START: Sept. 18 vs. Baltimore, took a no-decision in Seattle 4-2 loss; two earned runs on four hits in 8.0 innings; six strikeouts, no walks, no home runs; 98 pitches, 64 for strikes.
- LAST VS. ANGELS: Never faced.
- CAREER VS. ANGELS: No record.
- AT ANGELS STADIUM: Never pitched.
- LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Ramirez never faced the Angels.

ANGELS: RHP Zach Greinke (14-5, 3.47 ERA, 1.185-2, 3.51 ERA, 1.15 WHIP)
The 28-year-old Greinke, in his ninth major league season and first with the Angels, will make his 12th start and first against the Mariners. Since joining the Angels in late July, Greinke has compiled a 5-2 record with a 3.51 ERA. Greinke has had no-decisions in his last two starts and posting a four-game winning streak.
A native of Orlando, FL., the 6-2, 200-pound Greinke attended Apopka High School in Apopka, FL., and signed with the Kansas City Royals after they selected him in the first round (sixth pick) of the 2002 amateur draft.
Greinke pitched in the Royals’ minor league system until May 22, 2004, when he made his major league debut in a 5-4 loss to the Oakland Athletics. Greinke, who started and worked 5.0 innings, did not factor in the decision.
Greinke lost 11 games his rookie year and an AL-high 17 the next and didn’t start to emerge until 2008, when he went 13-10, 3.47. In 2009, Greinke went 16-8 with a league-leading 2.16 ERA, became an All-Star and won the Cy Young Award.
Greinke pitched for Kansas City until Dec. 19, 2010, when the Royals traded him, along with former Mariner Yuniesky Betancourt, to the Milwaukee Brewers for two minor league players. Greinke posted his best record for Milwaukee last year, going 16-6 with a 3.83 ERA.
He was 9-3 with the Brewers this season when they traded him to the Angels for three minor league players.

- Sept. 18: Seattle’s 18-inning, 4-2 loss to Baltimore at Safeco Field marked the second-longest home game in Mariners history and the longest — 5:44 — in terms of time since a 5:47 marathon at Texas in June 2004.
