Mariners Vs. Blue Jays: Seattle Eyes Second-Straight Win In Toronto

The Seattle Mariners hung on to win game one of their series with the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, looking to start a winning streak on Wednesday at the Rogers Centre.

Veteran Kevin Millwood (5-12, 4.27) gets the start for Seattle, who has turned around his terrible August (0-4, 5.97 ERA) with a great outing against Boston in his last start. He gave up just one run on four hits in six innings en route to a 2-1 victory. Millwood gave up up three runs in seven innings in his last start against Toronto in April, though the M's fell 7-0.

Toronto will send out Ricky Romero (8-13, 5.85 ERA) who has dropped his last 13 decisions and was skipped in the rotation after his last start. He gave up seven runs in the first inning against the Rays, getting yanked there after for the shortest outing of his career. Romero currently has the AL's worst ERA amongst qualifying starters, and a league high 90 walks this season.

Seattle has won the last four meetings with Toronto this season.

First pitch is set for 4:07 p.m. PT with coverage on Root Sports and ESPN 710 AM.
