Seattle comes in for rare series



The Phillies will miss Felix Hernandez for this series





The Seattle Mariners have been a revived ball club lately. Their road record of 33-24 is very good, and they just came off a a game where they beat the AL Central leader Detroit Tigers by an 8-1 score. The win also took the series from the Tigers in Detroit.

The M's are also 11-3 over their last 14 games. So they have been a hot team that is starting to churn with about 6 weeks left in the regular season.

For the Phillies, this matchup is rare, the Phillies and the Mariners have only played a total of 9 times since interleague play started and the Phillies have a 2-7 record against them.

Pitching tonight for the Phillies, it's 32-year old waiver wire pickup Jerome Williams on the mound tonight for the team. The Rangers put him out on waivers after only 2 games with them after he showed them a 9.90 ERA, he was with Houston before that and he had a 6.23 ERA in 26 games for the Astros.
