This is a Free play on the Seattle Mariners.

The Mariners may be one of the worst teams in the majors when it comes to scoring runs, but they have two of the best starting pitchers in the game. Oakland got a look at one of those yesterday with Felix Hernandez tossing seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 M's victory.

The Mariners hand the ball to Hisashi Iwakuma tonight, and the 32 year old owns the second best ERA in the American League. Iwakuma (7-1, 1.79 ERA) allowed just a single run on four hits over seven innings in a 3-2 win over the Astros in his last start. He's allowed just one run (unearned) over his last three starts (22 innings).

Iwakuma has already faced Oakland twice this year, going 2-0 and allowing just three runs in 13 innings of work. He's 10-1 with a 1.81 ERA in his last 17 starts dating back to last season.

Bartolo Colon will get the nod for the A's, and he's been fantastic so far this season. Colon (8-2, 2.92 ERA) tossed six scoreless innings allowing just three hits in a win over the Yankees his last time out. He struggled a little with his command against New York, walking four and using 102 pitches over six frames.

This matchup has all the signs of a pitcher's duel, and after being shutout yesterday, it doesn't get any easier for Oakland today.

Take the M's.
