#156: Mariners Try To Avoid Another Sweep

After falling to the L.A. Angels 4-3 Wednesday on a walk-off single by Torii Hunter, the Mariners have dropped seven of their last nine contests.

In a late change to the Angels' rotation, Dan Haren will start against the Mariners in the series finale Thursday. / Wiki Commons

GAME: Mariners (72-83, 4th, AL West, – 19.0 GB) at Angels (86-69, 3rd, AL West, – 6.0 GB). GAME #: 156. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 16th (Angels lead 10-5). WHEN: Thursday, 12:35 p.m., Angels Stadium, Anaheim, CA. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle, 7-5, 3.41) vs. RHP Dan Haren (Los Angeles, 12-11, 4.35). STREAKS: Mariners L 3; Angels W 5. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: ESPN 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network

The Angels scheduled Ervin Santana to pitch Thursday’s series finale against the Mariners, but manager Mike Scioscia made a late change to his rotation and now will send Dan Haren out to oppose Hisashi Iwakuma. Haren is 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA in his last six starts, has picked up a win in each of his past two, and has a history of success against Seattle.

Iwakuma has won both of his starts against the Angels, posting a 1.56 ERA while striking out 11 and walking just two in 14.1 innings. In his last outing against L.A., he threw 7.2 scoreless innings, something the Mariners, losers of seven of nine, could use Wednesday. A closer look at the probables:

MARINERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (7-5, 3.41 ERA, 1.28 WHIP)

Hisashi Iwakuma

The 31-year-old Iwakuma, in his first major league season, makes his 15th start and third against the Angels (he also made a relief appearance June 5). Iwakuma, who started the season as a reliever and then stretched out to become a starter during a minor league assignment, defeated the Angels 7-4 Aug. 11 and beat them again 2-1 Sept. 2. He is coming off a 6-3 win over the Texas Rangers at Safeco Field Sept. 21.

A native of Tokyo, the 6-3, 190-pound Iwakuma signed with the Mariners as a free agent Jan. 5, following an 11-year career in his native country. Iwakuma pitched for Osaka Kintetsu from 2001-04, and for Rakuten from 2005-11. His record was 107-69, 3.25 ERA.

In 2004, Iwakuma started out 12-0 en route to a 15-2 record and 3.45 ERA. He had his only 20-win season in 2008 when he went 21-4, 1.87 ERA in 28 starts. Iwakuma won Japan’s equivalent of the Cy Young award.

In 2008, Iwakuma was named the Pacific League Most Valuable Player and also named an NPB All-Star.

Iwakuma played in the 2004 Olympics and in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, where he won a gold medal.

Iwakuma has pitched at least 5.0 innings in all nine of his starts and has worked at least 7.0 in two of his past three. He also has two saves, May 30 at Texas and June 2 at Chicago.

Iwakuma continues to allow plenty of baserunners, but is proving to be a master at getting out of jams. The Mariners have won three of the right-hander’s past five starts.

  • Sept. 18: Seattle’s 18-inning, 4-2 loss to Baltimore at Safeco Field marked the second-longest home game in Mariners history and the longest — 5:44 — in terms of time since a 5:47 marathon at Texas in June 2004.
