The Seattle Mariners are back home after wrapping up their first road trip of the season. They’ll be starting a long homestand against three National League opponents: the Colorado Rockies, the Milwaukee Brewers, and the St. Louis Cardinals. Here’s a look at what to expect for the opener against the Rockies.
Gomber, Arenado Trade Headliner, Set to Pitch Against Mariners
Austin Gomber, who came over as the headliner in the Nolan Arenado deal, is set to pitch against the Mariners. While his numbers weren’t great last year, he’s still a capable pitcher who’s just had some bad luck. He’ll be facing off against Tommy Milone, who’s been summoned from Tacoma to make a spot start in place of Marco Gonzales, who’s on paternity leave.
Jarred Kelenic Getting Rare Start Against Lefty
In an interesting move, the Mariners are giving Jarred Kelenic a rare start against a left-handed pitcher. It’s an opportunity for Kelenic to gain experience and confidence, but he’ll need his teammates to score runs so he can take some low-stress at-bats.
Game Time, TV and Radio Coverage, and Ticket Information
The game starts at 7:10 PT and will be aired on ROOT Sports and Seattle Sports 710 AM. Tickets are still available on the Mariners website, with prices starting at $26 before fees. Fans attending the game can also get their hands on a Cal Clinch bobblehead. Regardless of how the game goes, there will be a lot of in-game content surrounding Cal’s drought-busting hit.
