The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will host the Seattle Mariners in what might be their final home game of the 2012 season. The Angels currently sit two games behind the Oakland A's in the American League wild card race, they'll be hoping to close that margin to one before hitting the road to face the Rangers and Mariners as they close out the regular season.
The Angels will be sending Dan Haren to the mound on Thursday afternoon as they look to win their 6th straight game. Haren has compiled a 12-11 record in 2012 with a disappointing 4.35 ERA. He has been on a roll of late though, sporting a 2.45 ERA over his last six starts.
Seattle will counter with rookie Hisashi Iwakuma as they hope to play spoiler for their divisional foe. Iwakuma is 7-5 with a 3.41 ERA in his first season in Major League Baseball.
The first pitch is scheduled for 12:35 p.m. PT from Anaheim. Local television coverage can be found on FSW, while the local radio broadcast will be carried by KLAA 830.
