The Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners prepare to wrap up their regular season with two meaningless games on Tuesday and Wednesday. Los Angeles saw its playoff chances end yesterday when the Oakland Athletics clinched their Wild Card berth. Now they have to play their next-to-last game against Seattle tonight.
The Angels lineup should look pretty familiar to those familiar to Los Angeles fans.
Dan Haren heads to the mound as he looks to end the season with a plus-.500 record. Haren currently stands at a 12-12 record, all while posting a 4.32 ERA. Haren went only 5-1/3 innings and gave up three runs off of six hits in his previous start against Seattle.
Hisashi Iwakuma will be the Seattle pitcher looking for his tenth victory, and is hot off a a two-game winning streak, beating the Angels (and Haren, coincidentally) in his last start.
