Most of the nation will be treated to the beginning of a weekend AL contender series as the Seattle Mariners hit the road to face the Detroit Tigers. The Mariners and Tigers get things started from Detroit at 7PM Eastern Time and MLB Network has the coast to coast broadcast. Scheduled to start in Game 1 of this three game series will be Seattle left hander James Paxton as he will oppose Tigers veteran right hander Rick Porcello. Paxton will make his third start since returning back to the Mariners rotation and has allowed a total of three earned runs pitching 10 2/3rd innings receiving a no decision in both games. Paxton spent time on the DL with a back injury. Porcello is 13-7 on the season with an ERA of 3.11. The Tigers hurler has allowed a total of three earned runs over his past three starts working 22 innings. Rick Porcello was on the hill in relief in the 19 innings marathon game on Sunday at Toronto and took the loss as he gave up the game winning run.

Others will be treated to the start of an interleague series as the Oakland Athletics will travel south to face the Atlanta Braves. The teams begin play from Atlanta at 7:30PM Eastern Time over MLB Network. The scheduled starters to open up this three game series will be Athletics left hander Jason Hammel opposing Braves left hander Alex Wood. After struggling through his first four starts with Oakland the Athletics the lefty bounce back with two good starts by allowing one earned run pitching 12 innings. Control has been an issue as Hammel had to escape trouble of allowing six walks in those two starts. Wood has allowed just one earned run in each of his past three starts. He too struggled with control with nine walks in those contests.
