Mariners Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Seattle Opens Series With 4-3 Win

The Seattle Mariners were hoping to get their three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays started on a winning note and they did just that on Tuesday evening. The Mariners grabbed an early lead at the Rogers Centre and hung on for the eventual 4-3 win.

Kyle Seager and Michael Saunders both hit RBI singles in the top of the first inning to stake Seattle to a quick 2-0 lead. Yunel Escobar answered back with an RBI single of his own in the bottom of the first to cut the Mariners lead to 2-1.

John Jaso hit an RBI single in the top of the third to make it 3-1 Mariners but Toronto kept pace with another run in the bottom of the frame, thanks to a Colby Rasmus sacrifice fly.

Seager led off the fifth inning with his 18th home run of the year -- a run that ended up being the difference in the game. The Blue Jays picked up one last run in the bottom of the eighth on a ground out but that would be the last gasp for the home team.

Erasmo Ramirez picked up his first win by holding the Jays to two runs on six hits and a walk in seven innings of work.
