The Mariners are looking to keep things rolling after a four-game sweep of the Royals. The Blue Jays are in town for three games at Safeco Field.

The Seattle Mariners may have found the perfect cure to blues associated with losing Ichiro Suzuki: a four-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals. Coming off that string of wins, the M's only have to win one of the next three games to secure a winning homestand. Of course, they'd prefer another series win.

As the Toronto Blue Jays come to town, that's what the Mariners will be gunning for. The Blue Jays are homer-happy, but we all know how often that works out at Safeco Field. The M's will try to feast on Toronto's second-string pitching while keeping the Jays in the ballpark.

Monday's game will begin at 7:10 p.m. PT and will be televised on ROOT Sports. You can catch the radio broadcast on ESPN 710.
