The Seattle Mariners' bats have come alive on their road trip. They go for their fourth straight win on Friday as they kick off a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Seattle Mariners saw their bats wake up in a big, bad way when they kicked off their road series this week. They shut down and swept the formidable Detroit Tigers and will now go for their fourth straight win as they attempt to climb back over .500. Beginning on Friday, the M's will visit the Toronto Blue Jays for a three-game series.

The Blue Jays have been every bit as formidable as the Tigers so far this season, with slugger Jose Bautista once again performing like one of the most intimidating batters in the American League. The Mariners will need their offense and their pitching to continue to stay sharp if they hope to pull off the series win.

Probable Pitchers and Game Times:

In game one on Friday, Blake Beavan will attempt to even out his 1-2 record as he goes up against Toronto ace Ricky Romero, who is 3-0 with a 3.29 ERA. The Mariners were lucky to miss the Tigers' ace Justin Verlander in Detroit. They won't be so lucky this time. The game will begin at 4:07 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can catch the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.

On Saturday, Kevin Millwood will look for his first win and attempt to redeem himself after his last two disastrous starts. He'll face right-hander Brandon Morrow, who is 1-1 with a 3.71 ERA. The game will begin at 1:07 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can catch the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.

In Sunday's finale,Jason Vargas will have a chance for his fourth win. He's been solid for Seattle this season, but has run into problem innings in each of his starts. His opponent will be the 0-2 Henderson Alvarez. First pitch on Sunday will be at 10:07 a.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can catch the radio broadcast on 710 ESPN.
