The three-game losing streak to begin the second part of the season wasn’t great, but Seattle did get off their slide Monday. The rookie hasn’t been great, but Dunning has been worse. Top-down, this one favors the Mariners to pick up the win on Tuesday.

France has the eighth-highest batting average in the league hitting .312 with 13 home runs and 51 RBI. He has five hits over his last two games and has more than two total bases in seven of his last nine games. France should tally at least two bases on Tuesday.
