Red Sox vs. Mariners lineups: Can Pérez dispense with the losing streak?

We don’t want a repeat of the opening series now, DO we?

MLB: Game Two-Chicago White Sox at Boston Red Sox
Happy #PérezDay. And Friday. Friday probably better on average.

The Red Sox look to snap a two-game skid behind Martín Pérez tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN) when they take on the Mariners.

There’s not a ton to add today, but it sorta goes without saying that a loss tonight would make it three straight for only the second time this season, after the initial trio of losses to the Orioles. That still happened. Hopefully the Sox can get to Seattle starter Yusei Kikuchi and prevent it from happening again.

I am writing this outside on an iPad and I gotta say it’s so spectacular nice out, and I live close enough to the edges of Boston’s weather pattern, that I gather it’ll be clear and beautiful tonight at the park. Maybe I just can’t bear to think of anything else in this stunning April sun, and maybe I’m just trying to get to the 150-word minimum so the system doesn’t yell at me before I try to publish. It’s a puzzler!

Here are the lineups:
