Mariners Announce Game 3 Starter

Scott Servais and the Seattle Mariners have made their decision on who will start Game 3 at home in Seattle.

It will be George Kirby getting the ball on Saturday. 
Mariners manager Scott Servais revealed that news on Wednesday afternoon. Starter Robbie Ray was the other option, but he allowed a walk-off three-run home run to Yordan Alvarez during a Game 1 relief appearance on Tuesday at Houston. 

Kirby made his major league debut this season, sporting a solid 3.39 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 133 strikeouts over his first 25 major league starts covering 130 innings. 

Kirby has made one start against the Houston Astros in his career, back on July 31 of this season, where he threw four innings of two-run baseball while striking out seven. The Astros won the game 3-2 in extra innings.
