Detroit is one of two teams the Mariners play 10 time this year, and these will be our last 4 games with them. We have finished our season series with one AL team, the Baltimore Orioles, and we lost that one 2 games to 4.
As has been mentioned we have a 4 to 2 series lead right now. The unusual thing is that we lost 2 of 3 at home, but took all 3 in Detroit. Sweeping another series will be quite a challenge because it's a 4 game series, not a 3 game one.
Remember how the Mariners had a pattern of winning the first two games of a series only to lose the third game? They just reversed that in White Sox-land. What does this all mean? Absolutely nothing.
It's a four game series between two teams who think they have a shot at the postseason, but have long odds of getting there. They're also one of our rivals right now for the Wild Card, so it is an important series. Currently the Mariners are 1.5 games behind the Tigers, so we need to win the series to pass them in the standings. Let's take 3 of 4!
