The Mariners get a break in Detroit

The pitching matchups are out for the Detroit series, and the Mariners are scheduled to miss both of the Tigers’ All-Star pitchers, Justin Verlander and Edwin Jackson.
As of now, Garrett Olson is listed as the Tuesday starter, but that’s subject to change, after last night’s performance. Whoever starts will face Tigers’ lefty Armando Galarraga. On Wednesday, in a dandy matchup of young studs, Felix Hernandez goes against 20-year-old righty Rick Porcello. And on Thursday, it’s Jarrod Washburn against LHP Luke French.
It’s particularly welcome for the Mariners to miss Jackson, who has made three starts against them in his career and is 3-0 with a 0.40 ERA.
One other note: Matt Tuiasosopo is finally back with Tacoma after elbow surgery and went 1-for-5 with an RBI double last night against Las Vegas in his first appearance for the Rainiers since April 25.
