Apple TV+ will host Friday’s matchup between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Seattle Mariners with first pitch set for 6:40 p.m. ET at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, WA. Matt Wisler will start for the Rays, while Logan Gilbert will get the ball for the Mariners.

Tampa Bay swept the Oakland Athletics earlier this week and won their fourth game in a row by beating Seattle 4-3 in Game 1 of this four-game series. Wisler made 10 appearances so far this season with two starts with a 1.50 ERA through 12 innings pitched. This will be a bullpen game for Tampa Bay, so expect to see plenty of pitchers appear for the Rays. Tampa Bay has an average offense through the first month, and Wander Franco has been impressive in his second MLB season with a .300 batting average and a team-leading 4 home runs as a 21-year-old.

Seattle scored just 2 runs when they were swept by the Houston Astros this week, so they’ll be looking to avoid a five-game losing streak on Friday night. Logan Gilbert has been fantastic for the Mariners with a 0.64 ERA through five starts. He has not allowed more than 1 run to this point of the season in his second year in the MLB. Seattle’s offense was gone silent this week, but Ty France continues to hit. He has a .330 batting average and a team-high 5 home runs and 21 RBIs.
