Cactus League Game 5, Mariners at Indians
Danny Hultzen vs. Some Guy 12:05pm
The M’s won their fourth straight yesterday with a come-back win over Milwaukee. Today they look to push around some other homespun midwesterners when they face Cleveland. Danny Hultzen gets the start, looking to build on his seven pitches, seven strikes, three outs inning the other day. Following him is Taijuan Walker, who’ll also get two innings. And only after that, when despair has set in amongst the Tribe’s batsmen, only when their soft underbelly has been casually exposed, will the M’s send Hector Noesi back to the mound. Tune in early, folks.
As with yesterday’s game, the radio broadcast is tape delayed until 7:05pm. If you’d like to listen live, get to a computer and go to mariners.com for the call.
