Lineup for the Mariners as they prepare to take on Angels in playoff-like game

prestadium0925.jpg
The parking lot outside Angel Stadium is empty now, but it will be full tonight as the Mariners send Erasmo Ramirez to the mound against Zack Greineke. The M’s somehow managed to avoid Greinke a couple of times after the All-Star Break, but now get him with the home side desperately needing wins.
The Angels enter tonight two games behind Oakland for the second wild-card. The A’s are playing Texas. This might be the best chance the Angels have to get back into the playoffs, so they will be looking for a sweep here.
That’s a tall order with Felix Hernadez going tomorrow. But still, this is a must-win game for the home team with Ramirez trying to play spoiler.
The last time the M’s faced Greinke was Aug. 6, 2010. They beat him that day too, his only career lost against Seattle.
