Editor's Note: The game is televised on MLB Network! Go watch it if you have cable! Your job will still be there tomorrow (no guarantees).
Sorry for the late game thread.
Here's the lineup for the Mariners. Erasmo Ramirez is pitching -- he has a 3.60 ERA in 5 IP this spring, and is competing against a couple of candidates for the 5th spot in the Mariners' rotation.

And here's the A's lineup. Keep an eye on Eric Sogard, who's trying to protect his job as the utility infielder against Tyler Ladendorf. Also Billy Burns, who is competing for a real MLB OF job with Josh Reddick out. Drew Pomeranz is pitching, and he's also competing for the 5th spot in the rotation. I wrote a piece on how he's finding success, so check that out if you want to.
Same lineup that was posted yesterday vs. #Mariners, so Ike Davis not a late add yet: pic.twitter.com/5DJliulXKS— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) March 18, 2015
Also, in more somber news, there is currently an active shooter situation in Mesa, with one dead and at least six wounded. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.
