Mariners Vs. Rockies, Game 3 Final Score: Seattle Breaks Out The Brooms In 6-4 Win

It looks like the Seattle Mariners are enjoying interleague play quite a bit so far. On Sunday, the Mariners completed a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field by holding on for a 6-4 win.

The Mariners, as they like to do, opened the scoring in the top of the first inning. The first run came on a strange play that ended with Dustin Ackley stealing home plate. Justin Smoak added an RBI single to put the M's up 2-0 before the Rockies ever batted.

The Rockies did manage to cut the lead to 2-1 on a Carlos Gonzalez home run in the bottom of the first inning. In the top of the third, the Mariners went back-to-back with a two-run homer from Jesus Montero and a solo shot by Smoak to make it 5-1 Seattle. It was the sixth home run of the year for Montero and the fifth for Smoak.

The Rockies made it 5-2 in the bottom of the fourth with a two-out RBI single from Jordan Pacheco, but Mike Carp got that run back for the Mariners in the sixth with his fourth homer of the year.

Brandon League once again had a rough outing in the bottom of the ninth, giving up two runs on a Dexter Fowler home run and an RBI single by Gonzalez, but got Troy Tulowitzi to ground into a force out and struck out Todd Helton to secure the win.

Mariners starter Blake Beavan got his second win of the year by allowing two runs in five innings on seven hits. Beavan struck out seven and walked just one. Seattle pitchers struck out 13 Rockies in the game.

Mariners Vs. Rockies, Game 2 Final Score: Seattle Coasts To 10-3 Victory

Interleague play appears to be just what the doctor ordered for the Seattle Mariners. After shutting out the Colorado Rockies at home on Friday night, the M's took advantage of the storied Coors Field penchant for high-scoring affairs and rolled to a 10-3 win on Saturday afternoon.

The Mariners put a two-spot on the board in the top of the second with Kyle Seager's fifth home run of the year. Jesus Montero and Seager rapped out RBI singles in the top of the third to push the Seattle lead to 4-0. In the top of the fourth, starting pitcher helped out his own cause with an RBI single that drove in Brendan Ryan.

Seattle hung another crooked number in the top of the sixth with a two-run double by Dustin Ackley, followed by a two-run single from Casper Wells to make it 9-0 Mariners.

The Rockies scored all three of their runs in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single by Jordan Pacheco and a home run by Wilin Rosario. The Mariners scored their final run of the game on a passed ball in the eighth inning.

Vargas picked up his fifth win of the year by giving up the three runs on five hits and a walk in seven full innings of work. Seattle will try to go for the sweep on Sunday.

Mariners Vs. Rockies Final Score: Seattle Snaps Losing Streak With 4-0 Win

On Friday, the Seattle Mariners entered interleague play holding a four-game losing streak, but it appears that Coors Field was just what the doctor ordered to get the M's back in the win column. The hometown Colorado Rockies were held scoreless by a second consecutive strong start from Kevin Millwood as Seattle picked up the 4-0 victory.

The Mariners once again opened the scoring in the top of the first, when Kyle Seager singled home Michael Saunders with two outs. Mike Carp hit a solo home run in the top of the third inning. Kyle Seager hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth to bring home Ichiro Suzuki and make it 3-0. The final Seattle run came in the top of the ninth on another sacrifice fly, this time with John Jaso driving in Seager. Suzuki and Seager each had two-hit games.

Millwood tossed an absolute gem in Coors Field, where it's nearly impossible to keep the ball in the park. Millwood got his second victory of 2012 with a complete game shutout, allowing just two hits and one walk, while striking out seven.
