Twins Vs. Mariners: Minnesota Looks For Consecutive Wins Against Seattle

The Minnesota Twins resume their weekend series against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night when the two teams meet again at Safeco Field.

The Twins look to begin a rare winning streak after rallying to win the first game of the series on Friday night. It won't be easy for Minnesota though as they'll face a motivated Mariners team having their own problems in the midst of a seven-game losing streak. Seattle will also have their ace on the hill as nasty right-hander Felix Hernandez will try to stop the losing for the M's. Hernandez is 2-1 with a 2.23 ERA in his five starts, often left begging for run support.

Minnesota will counter with right-hander Jason Marquis on the mount. Marquis has taken advantage of solid runs support in his three starts so far this season, taking the hill on Saturday with a 2-0 record and 6.23 ERA.

The game is scheduled to start at 8:10 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports North
