The Mariners have The King ready to throw in front of his court as they open a huge homestand on Friday night.

Felix Hernandez will pitch in front of King’s Court against the Astros, backed by a lineup that includes catcher Mike Zunino hitting sixth and Daniel Vogelbach at first base with Adam Lind still recovering from an injured finger.

The Astros will counter with right-handed starter Collin McHugh on the mound. Houston’s All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve, who has been battling a sore oblique, is also in the lineup for the 7:10 game, which will be live on 710 ESPN Seattle. The pregame show begins at 6.
