While the offense is finding its stride, the Seattle Mariners are emerging from their early-season funk thanks to a pitching resurgence.

Mariners right-hander Yovani Gallardo (0-1, 6.30 ERA) will be tasked with continuing the rotation’s dominance Tuesday when he opposes the Miami Marlins and left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (1-0, 7.00 ERA).

Ariel Miranda’s seven shutout innings in Seattle’s 6-1 win over Miami on Monday gave the Mariners three starts in four games of seven-plus innings and one run or fewer. The bullpen has allowed two runs in 12 1/3 innings (1.46 ERA), lowering its season ERA more than a run while helping Seattle to a four-game winning streak.

Thanks to the recent run, the Mariners’ team ERA is down to a respectable 4.16, which ranks 10th in the American League.

Gallardo hasn’t helped in that department. The 31-year-old veteran turned in a pair of five-inning starts to open the season, allowing four runs in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels on April 7 and three runs in a no-decision vs. the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

The Mariners handed Gallardo a 5-0 lead vs. Houston, but he walked three in the fourth inning, one of them with the bases loaded, to contribute to the Astros’ comeback for a 10-5 win.
