Result: Win

10-unit Play Take #921 Seattle Mariners over Minnesota Twins (2:10pm EST) Mike Pelfrey is back. After impersonating a good pitcher earlier this season, Pelfrey is finally throwing up beach balls for his opponents to hammer. Over his last five starts, the 31-year old has a bulky 6.84 ERA to go along with a lousy 12-9 K-BB ratio. On the season, Pelfrey is striking out just 4.3 batters per nine innings. That's not going to get it done at the big league level, and it's somewhat surprising that he's still in the Twins rotation. This isn't the same last place team that can let guys work through their problems. They are currently in a wild card spot in the AL and have to give themselves the best chance to win. But we're betting that the Mariners can take advantage. They send Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound for his ninth start of the season. Injuries have hampered the right-hander, but his peripheral numbers have been solid despite a high 5.10 ERA. Iwakuma knows how to pitch and should have few problems with a weak Twins lineup. This is a big mismatch on the mound and I think the M's get the victory here.
