Southpaw Nate Robinson will get the start for the Mariners today.
Today’s lineup for the Giants:
First pitch is at 12:05 PT (1:05 MT) and will be broadcast live on KNBR 680. Tomorrow will be the Giants first televised Spring Training game of the year as they meet the Texas Rangers in a World Series rematch at 6:05 PT (7:05 MT) and can be seen on CSN Bay Area.
