Mariners Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Seattle Makes It 7 Straight With 5-3 Win

The Seattle Mariners are blazing hot right now. They have won seven straight and have swept two straight series following a 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night.

Colby Rasmus hit a home run off of Seattle starter Blake Beavan in the first inning to stake the Blue Jays to an early lead. A homer from Kelly Johnson in the fourth inning made it 2-0 Toronto.

The Mariners scored a run in the bottom of the fourth on a double play to cut into the Blue Jays' lead, but Toronto got that run right back in the fifth with a Jeff Mathis sacrifice fly that made it 3-1. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Eric Thames, playing in his first game since coming over from the Blue Jays in a trade, hit a two-out, two-run homer to tie the game.

John Jaso hit an RBi single in the bottom of the sixth to put the Mariners ahead for the first time in the game, 4-3. Dustin Ackley added an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh.

The Mariners will now have a day off before traveling to the Bronx to take on the New York Yankees and check in with their old friend, Ichiro Suzuki.

Mariners Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Seattle Makes It 6 In A Row With 7-2 Win

The Seattle Mariners are officially on a roll. They picked up their second straight win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, 7-2, to win the series and win their sixth straight game.

Dustin Ackley led off the home half of the first inning with his seventh home run of the year to stake Seattle to an early lead. Trayvon Robinson and Brendan Ryan had RBI singles in the third inning and Ackley added an RBI fielder's choice to make it a quick 4-0.

Brett Lawrie hit a two-run double in the top of the third inning to halve the Mariners' lead, but Ackley had another RBI fielder's choice in the fourth and Miguel Olivo hit a two-run single in the fifth.

Jason Vargas -- who wasn't traded before the deadline -- picked up his 12th win by going seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk.

The Mariners will go for lucky number seven and the sweep of Toronto on Wednesday.

Mariners Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Seattle Wins 4-1 In Advance Of Trades

And just like that, the Seattle Mariners have put together a five-game winning streak. On Monday night, the Mariners kicked off a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays with a 4-1 win at Safeco Field.

The Blue Jays scored first, as Rajai Davis hit a leadoff home run off Hisashi Iwakuma to start the game. Unfortunately for Toronto, that would be the extent of their scoring, as Iwakuma pitched an absolute gem. He ended up holding the Jays to just four hits and three walks in eight innings and struck out an astounding 13 batters to improve to 2-2. It's safe to say this was the best game of Iwakuma's career.

The Mariners took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning as John Jaso drove in a run on a double-play and Kyle Seager tacked on yet another two-out RBI to add to his MLB-leading total. Mike Carp scored on a fielding error in the second to make it 3-1 and Michael Saunders hit an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth for added insurance.

The Mariners made a pair of trades after the game. The first trade sent Brandon League to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a pair of prospects. The second deal was a bit closer to home, as the Blue Jays sent outfielder Eric Thames to the Mariners in exchange for reliever Steve Delabar.

Thames is having a down year after a solid 2011 rookie season, but both of these trades could end up working out well for the future of the Mariners franchise.
