The Mariners will head north of the border on Tuesday for a three-game series against the Blue Jays. The M's could use a series win.
The Seattle Mariners caught a rough break over the weekend as they were swept in three straight games by the Oakland Athletics at Safeco Field. The Mariners now kick off a road series on Tuesday with a three-game set against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays have been plagued by injuries all season long -- most notably to their pitching staff. They are still a formidable team and Edwin Encarnacion has stepped up as a fearsome masher while Jose Bautista is out for the season with a wrist injury. The Blue Jays have a four-game winning streak going and should never be underestimated.
