The Mariners are sitting several of their starters, but they shouldn't need much offense because King Felix is pitching. The Indians, who have a chance to win the series, have their work cut out for them, though they've had success against Hernandez of late. Last year he allowed six runs (five earned) to the Indians at Progressive Field.
