Set to face the Tampa Bay Rays for a three-game series at Safeco Field, the Mariners will send Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton, and Erasmo Ramirez to the mound to counter Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, and Matt Moore.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Tampa Bay Rays. Blake Beaven had a rough night. Despite his solid stats, Beavan’s season has been plagued by a 46% fly ball percent. In fact, his fly out to ground out ratio is at an ugly 40/30. Elsewhere in the AL West, the Oakland Athletics have ridden a 2-game win streak to 13-13.

Miguel Olivo finished tonight 2-4 with a home run but was injured.
