The Seattle Mariners will continue their 10-game road trip on Monday when they start up a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Mariners got a huge 8-7 win on Sunday to secure the series win over the New York Mets who are on top of their division. It’s a rare bright spot in this rough stretch they’ve been in, winning just 5 of their last 18 games overall. The Blue Jays are in a similar boat as Seattle as another team that started off the year well and they faded away.
Toronto lost 3-0 on Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays, and now has lost four series in a row. They are now just one game above .500 and have fallen to third place in the division, a whole 7.5 games behind the Yankees for first place. Toronto will use this opportunity to get to the W as the Mariners will start Chris Flexen who is 1-5 for the season with a 4.24 ERA. The Blue Jays will have a much better pitcher on the mound, Yusei Kikuchi who is 1-1 for the season with a 4.15 ERA.
