The Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners will continue their four-game weekend series on Friday night from T-Mobile Park.
Toronto has yet to announce their starting pitcher for Game 2 of this series, while the Mariners are expected to send Marco Gonzales to the bump.
So far this season, the Mariners left-hander has a 4-9 record with a 3.29 ERA and 49 strikeouts. When he’s been on the mound, he’s been very effective, but the team has struggled to give him run support which should be something to keep an eye on in this matchup.

Will the Blue Jays’ Inconsistencies Continue vs. the Mariners?
The Toronto Blue Jays lost two-of-three games against the basement-dwelling Oakland Athletics while also sitting with a 4-6 record over their past ten games. There hasn’t been much to like about their pitching lately or their offense at the plate, which could be a problem going into Seattle for this series. Will the real Blue Jays team that many people thought would be contenders please stand up?

SS Bo Bichette
1B Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Will the Mariners Stay Hot Against the Blue Jays?
The Seattle Mariners have put together a very nice stretch of baseball over their past ten games, where they’ve won four in a row and have a 7-3 record. Those victories have helped put the team back in the American League wild card conversation, where they currently sit four games back entering this series against one of the teams they’ll be chasing.
