Hernandez to Open Series vs. Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Seattle are back in action after a day off yesterday, opening a series in Pittsburgh against the Pirates.
Seattle will send right-hander Felix Hernandez to the mound, with Hernandez 4-4 and coming off allowing five runs against the White Sox last week in his first start since missing a couple months with a strained right calf.
Lefty Francisco Liriano (6-9, 4.96) starts for the Pirates.
The Mariners had yesterday off after being one-hit on Sunday by Toronto in a 2-0 loss. Despite the loss, Seattle did win the series against the Blue Jays.
