GAME: Blue Jays (51-50, 4th, AL East, – 9.0 GB) at Mariners (47-57, 4th, AL West, – 14.0 GB). GAME #: 105. SERIES: 1st of 3 games. MEETING: 4th (Blue Jays lead 2-1). WHEN: Monday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Ricky Romero (Toronto, 8-7, 5.75) vs. RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle, 1-2, 4.56). STREAKS: Mariners W 4; Blue Jays L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

After defeating Kansas City 7-6 Sunday at Safeco Field, the Mariners are 11-6 since the All-Star break and winners of 10 of 14 and five of past six. Unfortunately for the Mariners, they have seen their last of the hapless Royals, a club they defeated seven times in eight games this season.

Seattle starts the final leg of its 10-game home stand Monday, hosting Toronto in a three-game set before hitting the road for nine at New York, Baltimore and Anaheim. Hisashi Iwakuma, who left the club this week and returned to Japan for personal reasons, is slated to start for the Mariners.

Iwakuma will oppose Ricky Romero, who is coming off six consecutive losses, including the worst of his career. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (1-2, 4.56 ERA, 1.46 WHIP)

Hisashi Iwakuma

The 31-year-old Iwakuma, in his first major league season, will be making his fifth start and first against the Blue Jays. Iwakuma, who started the season as a reliever and then stretched out to become a starter during a minor league assignment, pitched in relief against Toronto April 28 (no-decision) and is coming off a no-decision vs. the New York Yankees July 25 at Safeco Field.

A native of Tokyo, the 6-3, 190-pound Iwakuma signed with the Mariners as a free agent Jan. 5, following an 11-year career in his native country. Iwakuma pitched for Osaka Kintetsu from 2001-04, and for Rakuten from 2005-11. His record was 107-69, 3.25 ERA.

In 2004, Iwakuma started out 12-0 en route to a 15-2 record and 3.45 ERA. He had his only 20-win season in 2008 when he went 21-4, 1.87 ERA in 28 starts. Iwakuma won Japan’s equivalent of the Cy Young award.

In 2008, Iwakuma was named the Pacific League Most Valuable Player and also named an NPB All-Star.

Iwakuma played in the 2004 Athens Olympics and in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, where he won a gold medal.

Iwakuma has pitched at least 5.0 innings in all four of his starts. He also has two saves, May 30 at Texas and June 2 at Chicago.

Romero took a no-decision in a 9-5 loss to the Mariners April 27 at the Rogers Center and is coming off the worst start of his career, a 16-0 flogging to Oakland July 25.

A native of Los Angeles, CA., the 6-0, 220-pound Romero attend Cal State-Fullerton and was selected by the Blue Jays in the first round (sixth pick) of the 2005 amateur draft.
