Padres-Mariners series relocated to San Diego due to air quality issues

Due to air quality issues in Washington state caused by wildfires that have spread on the West Coast, Major League Baseball has relocated this weekend's three-game series between the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres to San Diego's Petco Park.

To retain the fairness of Seattle having final at-bats in all three games, the Mariners will serve as the "home team" throughout the series.

Earlier this week, the Mariners had a two-game tilt with the San Francisco Giants moved from Seattle to San Francisco because of risks associated with the air quality. Additionally, Tuesday's game between the clubs was postponed and the series was pushed back a day. 

San Diego remained off on Thursday as planned. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
