The Mariners will get a good look at the Warriors, but this time around they’ll be playing against the likes of the Hawks and the Warriors themselves.
The Warriors will take on the Hawks on Saturday in a game the Mariners have lost to the Hawks three times this season.
With a 2-0 lead in the first, the Hawks will get on the board first, but the Mariners are in no rush to get out of their own way.
After that, it’s all Hawks.
If they can find a way to break through, the Mariners might be able to make some noise.
But they’ll need to be patient with the Hawks, who will come in fresh off a three-game winning streak, as well as the Warriors.
The Mariners have only won once in their last five meetings with the Warriors and are 8-3 against them all-time.
While the Hawks are unbeaten against the Warriors this season, the Warriors are undefeated in four games against the Hawks.
In that time, the teams have combined for seven home runs.
One thing is for sure: Seattle will have to score at least twice in the game to win.
The Hawks won’t be happy to see the Mariners get their first win against the Pacific Division leaders.
“It’s an unbelievable opportunity,” Hawks center fielder Matt Taormina said.
“We’re excited to come out here and play the Warriors.”
It’s a matchup the Mariners can’t afford to lose.
And it’s the same team that has won 10 of the last 11 games against Seattle, and has won the last two matchups in the series.
The Warriors come into this game with three wins in their past four outings against the Mariners.
Golden State has won eight of the past 10 games, including a 4-1 victory in Seattle last week.
It was also a matchup that Seattle didn’t win last year, a 5-1 loss in Seattle.
