Saturday looking to stat the season 2-0 today. Minnesota looking to regroup on saturday after their bats were silenced on friday from some solid seattle pitching.

Newly acquired Jesse Winker might have given Seattle fans some pause when he went 2-for-30 with 10 strikeouts in spring training.

But he showed in Friday’s season opener that spring statistics don’t matter. Winker went 2-for-4 and drew a walk as the Mariners defeated the host Minnesota Twins 2-1.

The teams will continue their four-game series Saturday afternoon at Target Field in Minneapolis.

“My first spring training in the bushes (low minors), I didn’t worry about (stats),” said Winker, a left fielder who came to the Mariners along with third baseman Eugenio Suarez in an offseason trade with Cincinnati. “I got traded and my job was to prepare my body and prepare my mind. I felt like my swing was coming along.”

Mariners right-hander Logan Gilbert, who went 6-5 with a 4.68 ERA in 24 starts as a rookie last season, will try Saturday to follow the example Robbie Ray set in his first appearance against Minnesota.

Ray, the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner with Toronto before signing with the Mariners as a free agent in the offseason, pitched seven innings Friday, giving up one run on three hits with five strikeouts.

The Twins plan to counter with right-hander Sonny Gray, who went 7-9 with a 4.19 ERA last season as a teammate of Winker and Suarez in Cincinnati. Gray is 5-3 with a 2.84 ERA in 12 career starts against Seattle.

Minnesota’s lone run Friday came on a solo homer by newcomer Gio Urshela in the fourth inning.
