GAME: Blue Jays (51-52, 5th, AL East, – 9.0 GB) at Mariners (49-57, 4th, AL West, – 12.0 GB). GAME #: 107. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 6th (Mariners lead 3-2). WHEN: Wednesday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Carlos Villanueva (Toronto, 6-0, 2.92) vs. RHP Blake Beavan (Seattle, 6-6, 5.20). STREAKS: Mariners W 6; Blue Jays L 3. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
Two weeks ago, when the Mariners stood 17.5 games behind the Texas Rangers in the AL West, the thought of them sweeping consecutive series would have been considered ludicrous. But the Mariners, who sewed up their 14th series win with a 7-2 victory over Toronto Tuesday and are now 12.0 games back, can do that Wednesday.
Winners of a season-high six in a rows, the Mariners send Blake Beavan to the mound. Beavan will make his fourth start since returning from AAA Tacoma. He’s 3-0, 3.05 since rejoining the big club.
“I’m pleased, but not satisfied,” Beavan said. “I want to keep building on each start and get back where I need to be, which is competing and getting deep in the game and giving our guys a chance to win a ballgame every night.”
Beavan will oppose Carlos Villanueva, who’s at hot as Beavan. Villanueva has won four consecutive starts, is 6-0 for the season, and Toronto has won each of his starts since he joined the rotation June 29. A closer look:
MARINERS: RHP Blake Beavan (6-6, 5.20 ERA, 1.25 WHIP)
The 23-year-old Beavan, in his second major league season and second with the Mariners, makes his 16th start and second against the Blue Jays. Beavan took a no-decision at Toronto April 27 and is coming off a 6-1 win over the Kansas City Royals at Safeco Field.
A native of Irving, TX., the 6-7, 240-pound Beavan was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round (17th pick) of the 2007 amateur draft.
After pitching in the minor leagues from 2008-11, Beavan made his major league debut July 3 against the San Diego Padres. He worked 7 IP, allowed three hits, two walks and one earned run in a 3-1 victory at Safeco Field.
Beavan became a Mariner July 9, 2010, when the Rangers traded him, along with Matthew Lawson (minors), Josh Lueke and Justin Smoak to Seattle for Cliff Lee, Mark Lowe and cash.
Beavan had 15 starts for the Mariners in 2011, compiled a 5-6 record, and has a career mark of 11-12, 4.70 ERA.

- April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
- April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.

- May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
- June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field.

It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
- June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
- June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . . When Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan both hit three-run homers in the fifth inning, it marked the first time since July 30, 2003 vs. Detroit that the Mariners had a pair of three-run bombs in the same inning.
