GAME: Padres (22-41, 5th, NL West, -17.5 GB) at Mariners (27-37, 4th, AL West, -10.5 GB). GAME #: 65. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 3rd (Padres lead 2-0). WHEN: Thursday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Edinson Volquez (San Diego, 2-6, 3.91) vs. RHP Erasmo Ramirez (Seattle, 0-0, 2.45). STREAKS: Mariners L 4; Padres W 2. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

Erasmo Ramirez, 22, will make his major league starting debut Thursday night when the Mariners, 1-0 losers Wednesday, and San Diego Padres wrap up their interleague series. Ramirez replaces in the rotation Blake Beavan, demoted to AAA Tacoma two days ago.

Ramirez, who made Seattle’s Opening Day roster, had seven MLB appearances in relief (3 earned runs in 11 innings) before the Mariners sent him to the Rainiers to prepare to be a starter.

“We wanted to get him down there to start and get him back into that (starting) routine,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said, “getting him stretched out, having success, throwing the ball very well down there. With Blake needing to go down to Triple-A, it’s a good time to get him up here.”

Ramirez will be the sixth pitcher to start for the Mariners this season. In MLB, only the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins have used the minimum five. Ramirez will oppose Edinson Volquez, who hasn’t pitched against Seattle since 2007. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (0-0, 2.45 ERA, 1.18 WHIP)

Erasmo Ramirez

In his first major league season, will be making the first start of his career after seven appearances in relief. Ramirez made seven starts with AAA Tacoma, going 3-2, 2.11.

A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.

That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.

Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.

After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter.

  • LAST APPEARANCE: May 2 at Tampa Bay, worked 0.2 innings in a 5-4 loss to the Rays; did not factor in the decision after allowing no runs and one hit; did not have a strikeout or a walk.
  • LAST VS. PADRES: Nevr pitched.
  • CAREER VS. PADRES: No record.
  • AT SAFECO FIELD: 0-0, 2.08 ERA in two games covering 4.1 innings; one strikeout to two walks; has yet to allow a home run.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: No record.

PADRES: RHP Edinson Volquez (2-6, 3.91 ERA, 1.40 WHIP)

Edinson Volquez

The 28-year-old Volquez, in his eighth major league season and first with the Padres, will be making his 14th start and his first against the Mariners. Volquez is coming off a 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

A native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, the 6-0, 225-pound Volquez signed with the Texas Rangers as an amateur free agent in 2001. He pitched in the Texas minor league system until Aug. 30, 2005, when he made his major league debut in an 8-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Volquez absorbed the loss, allowing five earned runs in 4.2 innings.

Volquez went 0-4 in the  2005 season and alternated between the majors and minors over the next three seasons. The Rangers traded Volquez to the Cincinnati Reds Dec. 21, 2007 along with Danny Herrera in exchange for Josh Hamilton.

Volquez became a full-time starter for the Reds in 2008 and won a career-high 17 games. He also made the National League All-Star Game for the first time. Volquez has never approached All-Star status again.

After spending 2008-11 with the Reds, they traded him Dec. 11, 2011 with Yonder Alonso, Brad Boxberger and Yasmani Grandle to San Diego for Mat Latos.

Volquez has appeared on a National League leaderboard just once before this season. He led the league in 2009 by hitting 14 batters.

Volquez haa a career record of 35-35, 4.55 ERA.

  • 2012: The National League leader in walks (43), Volquez has pitched into the seventh inning in just three of his 13 starts. He had his best outing May 12 at Philadelphia when he limited the Phillies to one earned run in a 2-1 San Diego victory. Volquez has had a streaky season.  He lost his first two decisions, won his next two and lost his last four. He has allowed five or more earned runs in a game three times.
  • LAST START: A 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers; allowed six earned runs on six hits over 5.0 innings; struck out four,  walked four and surrendered three home runs.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: Sept. 28, 2007, had a no-decision in a 6-4 Seattle win over Texas; allowed three earned runs on five hits over 5.1 innings in a game opposed by Mariner Jeff Weaver and won in relief by J.J. Putz.
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 1-0, 4.24 ERA in four games, including three starts, covering 17.0 innings; eight strikeouts vs. nine walks; two home runs; averages 4.2 strikeouts per nine innings.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Volquez facedvthree members of  the Mariners:  Chone Figgins (4-for-5) and Ichiro (3-for-10) are a combined 7-for-15 against him. Miguel Olivo is 0-for-2.
  • CURRENT MARINERS VS. VOLQUEZ: 7-for-17, .412 BA, one home run, two strikeouts.

LAST GAME

Padres 1, Mariners 0

(June 13): Jason Marquis pitched 6.1 innings and combined with three relievers on an eight-hitter as the Padres parlayed a seventh-inning homer by Yonder Alonso to beat the Mariners 1-0, Seattle’s seventh blanking of the season and fourth at Safeco Field. Marquis (1-1) allowed six hits, walked four and struck out four. Alonso belted his second homer of the season, and seventh of his career, on the first pitch of the seventh inning from starter Hector Noesi (2-7), who allowed one run and five hits in seven innings. He allowed 12 earned runs in his previous two outings combined. The Mariners put at least one runner on base against Marquis in every inning, but could not score, going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES

  • April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record  when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
  • April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
  • April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.
  • May 2: Ichiro set a club record for most putouts by a right fielder in a nine-inning game, registering 10 in a 5-4 loss at Tampa.
  • May 3: The Mariners featured a lineup at Tampa Bay that included seven left- handed hitters and two switch-hitters. It marked only the third time in club history that the Mariners used an all left-sided lineup. Others: Aug. 13, 1983 at California and Aug. 9, 1983 at Oakland.
  • May 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined. Most recent combined: Michael Pineda, Jeff Gray and Brandon League vs. Tampa, July 30, 2011. Most recent by one pitcher: Jarrod Washburn, July 6, 2009.
  • May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.
  • May 8: Kevin Millwood’s 2-0 shutout marked his first in nearly nine years. He did not surrender his first hit until there were two outs in the sixth. Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
  • May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
  • May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
  • June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.

    It is also time to dump non productive position players. The Mariner’s linep cannpt afford a defense only shortstop. The Japanese guy is capable of both offense and defence. Also, bite the bullet and release Chone Figgins. he is filling a roster spot that other yuounger players could fill.
