Nice pitching matchup tonight.
Did You Know?: Ichiro hits .378/.424/.498 against the Orioles for his career. The .922 OPS is his best mark against American League team. He sucks against Tampa Bay (.285/.318/.382).
Similarly, Brian Roberts torches the Mariners: .349/.414/.482. That's HIS best OPS against any AL team.
And if you're curious, Millar hits .231/.283/.337 against Seattle, and a robust .180/.203/.279 at SAFECO Field.
Kind of a downer, I guess.
Guthrie's last start was his worst of the season, as he was lit up by the White Sox on Thursday. This is the first time he faces Seattle.
