The Seattle Mariners are looking to snap their losing streak. Will a series against the Colorado Rockies be the answer?

The Seattle Mariners are riding a four-game losing streak as they kick off their first interleague series of 2012 on Friday. The Mariners will visit the Colorado Rockies and hope that they can turn their luck around in the notoriously lively Coors Field.

Although the balls are kept in a humidor these days, the Colorado stadium always seems to invite inflated scores. The Mariners could certainly use the boost of confidence.
