GAME: Angels (89-72, 3rd, AL West, - 4.0 GB) at Mariners (74-87, 4th, AL West, - 20.0 GB). GAME #: 162. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 19th (Angels lead 11-7). WHEN: Wednesday, 3:40 p.m., Safeco Field, Seattle, WA. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Jered Weaver (Los Angeles, 20-4, 2.73) vs. RHP Blake Beavan (Seattle, 10-11, 4.68). STREAKS: Mariners W 1; Angels L 1. TV: Root Sports. RADIO: ESPN 710, Mariners Radio Network

The Mariners really have nothing to play for in Wednesday's season-ending game against the Los Angeles Angels, who will also miss the postseason. But two Angels -- Jered Weaver and Mike Trout -- still have much at stake. Weaver will make his last case for the AL Cy Young Award and Trout his final argument for AL Most Valuable Player.

Weaver (20-4), 2.73 will square off against Blake Beavan, who has had an inconsistent season and is coming off his shortest outing of the second half, a 4.2-inning stint  against Oakland last Friday. Beavan, though, has had success with Trout, currently hitting .323.

Beavan has held Trout hitless in eight at-bats. A closer look at Wednesday's season ender:MARINERS: RHP Blake Beavan (10-11, 4.68 ERA, 1.26 WHIP)

The 23-year-old Beavan, in his second major league season and second with the Mariners, makes his 26th start and third against the Athletics. Beavan took a no-decision against the Angels May 25 and lost to L.A. 6-1 June 5. He has lost three of his past four decisions and is coming off an 8-2 setback to the Oakland Athletics Sept. 28 in Oakland.

A native of Irving, TX., the 6-7, 240-pound Beavan was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round (17th pick) of the 2007 amateur draft.

After pitching in the minor leagues from 2008-11, Beavan made his major league debut July 3 against the San Diego Padres. He worked 7 IP, allowed three hits, two walks and one earned run in a 3-1 victory at Safeco Field.

Beavan became a Mariner July 9, 2010, when the Rangers traded him, along with Matthew Lawson (minors), Josh Lueke and Justin Smoak to Seattle for Cliff Lee, Mark Lowe and cash.

Beavan had 15 starts for the Mariners in 2011, compiled a 5-6 record, and has a career mark of 15-17, 4.69 ERA.

  • Sept. 18: Seattle's 18-inning, 4-2 loss to Baltimore at Safeco Field marked the second-longest home game in Mariners history and the longest -- 5:44 -- in terms of time since a 5:47 marathon at Texas in June 2004.
