The Cleveland Indians look to keep their winning ways going in game two of their series in Seattle. Trevor Bauer will start on the mound for the Tribe and enters with a record of 4-1 and a 3.02 ERA. Bauer has pitched into the eighth inning in his last two starts, including a 7 and 2/3 inning five hit gem against the Reds last Sunday.

The Mariners counter with young right-hander Taijuan Walker. Walker, one of baseball's top pitching prospects the last few years, has had a rough go of it this season. He enters with a record of 1-5 and a 7.33 ERA. He went 5 and 2/3 innings in his last start, allowing four runs on six hits. Walker does average almost a strikeout an inning and throws hard, averaging 94.2 mph with his fastball.
