It's Raul Ibañez Bobble Head Night this evening in Seattle when the Mariners host the White Sox. Look for Ibañez and Miguel Batista to lead the M's to the win over the Pale Hose.
Our Friday night MLB selection is on the Seattle Mariners over the Chicago White Sox.
Interestingly, tonight's game is Raul Ibañez Bobble Head Night, and Ibañez comes into Friday night's play as one of the hottest hitters in the American League. He's 17 for 38 (.447) with six homers and 13 RBI in his last nine games. On Wednesday, a 6-1 loss to the Twins, Ibañez plated Seattle's lone run with a home run.
The White Sox have dropped a season-high five straight games, and have a tough task tonight when they go up against Mariners right-hander Miguel Batista who already has 12 wins on the season. Jose Contreras gets the start for Chicago, and he's an awful 0-7 with a 10.38 ERA in his last seven starts. Take Seattle.
