Game Preview: Mariners at Indians (For One Night Only)

Tonight’s game (9/19) is a make up of the rain out from May 15th. This is the second make up of that series, the last coming on 8/23. The Indians won the first game of the series when it was oringinally scheduled and the first make up game, so if the Indians win tonight, it will be one of the most drawn out sweeps in history with 127 days between the first and last game. 

The Mariners are coming to town on their way from Seattle to Minneapolis. Sunday wrapped up a series loss to the Rangers for the Mariners and, after today’s day game, will move on to play the Twins for 3. The Indians get to stay at home after the quickie against the M’s, but have to play 8 games in the next 6 days. 

Probable Starters 9/19 4:05

Charlie Furbush (2-6, 5.77) vs. David Huff (2-5, 3.40)

Charlie Furbush has one of the funniest names in baseball and a very average ERA. David Huff has been a pleasant surprise this season and will use his last couple starts to prove he belongs in the starting rotation next season. Only a couple spots seem set (Justin Masterson and Josh Tomlin) and Huff would love to make himself part of the top 5.
