This is a Free play on the Seattle Mariners.

The Mariners upset the A's in last night's series opener, as Oakland continued to struggle at the plate. The A's have scored just five runs over their last two games (27 innings) after defeating the Yankees 3-2 in an 18 inning marathon on Thursday night.

Facing Felix Hernandez tonight certainly isn't going to help, Felix is coming off another fantastic performance in a losing effort in his last start. Hernandez (7-4, 2.49 ERA) allowed just one run on five hits over seven innings in a 2-1 loss to the Yankees, not factoring in the decision.

He likes pitching on the West Coast, and Oakland is no exception. Felix is 5-2 with a 2.78 ERA in his last 12 starts versus the A's, and he's 2-0 with a 3.30 ERA in his last six visits to Oakland.

A.J. Griffin will get the nod for the home team, and he's 0-2 in his last three starts. Griffin (5-5, 3.78 ERA) allowed four runs on seven hits, including a pair of home runs in a 4-2 loss to Chicago (one of the worst teams in the majors) in his last start. He's only produced one quality start in his last four outings, and he's going to need to be a whole lot better opposite Felix tonight.

The Mariners are terrible offensively, but Griffin hasn't been sharp lately, and we are getting them as a dog with their ace on the mound.

Take the M's
