GAME: Blue Jays (51-51, 5th, AL East, – 9.0 GB) at Mariners (48-57, 4th, AL West, – 13.0 GB). GAME #: 106. SERIES: 2nd of 3 games. MEETING: 5th (series tied 2-2). WHEN: Tuesday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Aaron Laffey (Toronto, 2-1, 3.22) vs. LHP Jason Vargas (Seattle, 11-7, 3.76). STREAKS: Mariners W 5; Blue Jays L 2. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

Having won a season-high five consecutive games (defeated Toronto 4-1 Monday night), the Mariners stand 12-6 since the All-Star break. With a 14-11 record in July, the Mariners have assured themselves of their first winning month since May of 2011 (15-11).

Winners of 11 of last 15 and six of their past seven, the Mariners turn to Jason Vargas Tuesday to keep the good times rolling. Vargas, the subject of trade rumors all week, has won his past four and will oppose former Mariner reliever Aaron Laffey, a relatively recent addition to the Blue Jays rotation. A closer look:

MARINERS: LHP Jason Vargas (11-7, 3.76 ERA, 1.15 WHIP)

Jason Vargas

The 29-year-old Vargas, in his seventh major league season and fifth with the Mariners, will make his 23nd start and second against the Blue Jays. Vargas lost to Toronto 7-2 April 29 at the Rogers Center. He has captured his past four decisions and is coming off a 4-1 win over the Kansas City Royals July 26. He will be seeking his team-leading 12th win (he has already set a career high with 11 wins).

A native of Apple Valley, CA., the 6-0, 215-pound Vargas was selected in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft by the Florida Marlins.

He made his debut with Florida July 14, 2005, pitching one inning of relief in a 13-7 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mariners acquired Vargas as part of a three-team swap Dec. 11, 2008, when the New York Mets sent him along with Mike Carp, Ezequiel Carrera, Endy Chavez, Maikel Cleto and Aaron Heilman to the Mariners. The Mariners sent Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Jeremy Reed to the Mets.

The Mariners also sent Luis Valbuena to the Indians. The Mets sent Joe Smith to the  Indians, who sent Franklin Gutierrez to the Mariners.

Vargas, the only lefty in Seattle’s starting rotation, has a career record of 39-46, 4.38 ERA, including 33-38, 4.09 ERA with the Mariners. Vargas has won four consecutive decisions following two no-decisions and three straight losses.

BLUE JAYS: LHP Aaron Laffey (2-1, 3.22 ERA, 1.18 WHIP)

Aaron Laffey

The 27-year-old Laffey, in his sixth major league season and first with the Blue Jays, will make his seventh start (and 11th appearance) and first against the Mariners. Laffey, who pitched in 36 games for the Mariners in 2011, signed with Toronto Dec. 30, 2011, but failed to make the club coming out of spring training. He started the year in AAA and didn’t pitch in his first game for the Blue Jays until June 13. He is coming off a no-decision against the Oakland Athletics.

A native of Cumberland, MD., the 6-0, 200-pound Laffey attended Allegeny High School in Cumberland and was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 16th round of the 2003 amateur draft. He pitched in the Cleveland minor league system until Aug. 4, 2007, when he made his major league debut against the Minnesota Twins, who saddled him with a 3-2 defeat.

Laffey pitched Cleveland through 2010, never winning more than seven games in any season. On March 2, 2011, the Indians traded Laffey to the Mariners for Matt Lawson. Laffey pitched in 36 games, in relief. He went 1-1 with a 4.01 ERA. The Mariners designated him for assignment Aug. 17.

Selected off waivers by the Yankees, Laffey worked in 11 games for New York, which released him after the season. Kansas City picked up his contract, but released Laffey a month later. He then signed with the Blue Jays.

Laffey has a career record of 23-24 with a 4.22 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.

  • 2012: After failing to make the Blue Jays coming out of spring training, Laffey went to AAA Las Vegas where he made 11 starts, going 3-5. The Blue Jays called up Laffey in late May, but he didn’t pitch and was returned to Las Vegas. He has been with the Blue Jays since June 13. Laffey pitched into the seventh inning in just one start (July 20). He had his best start that day, against Boston, winning 6-1. Laffey did not allow an earned run in 7.0 innings. He struck out four and walked none.
  • LAST START: July 26 vs. Oakland, took a no-decision in Toronto’s 10-4 win; four earned runs on five hits in 5.2 innings; struck out four, walked three; two home runs.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: Aug. 22, 2009, pitching for Cleveland, took a no-decision in the Indians’ 4-3 victory at Progressive Field; three earned runs on eight hits in 7.0 innings; struck out two, walked two; one home run (Russell Branyan).
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 1-1, 3.53 ERA in six games, all starts, covering 35.2 innings; 20 strikeouts to 11 walks; 5.0 strikeouts per nine innings; five home runs.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Current Mariners have had only 20 at-bats against Laffey, including eight by Miguel Olivo (1-for-8) and seven by Chone Figgins (1-for-6).
  • CURRENT MARINERS VS. LAFFEY: 2-for-20, no home runs, eight strikeouts.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES

  • April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record  when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
  • 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 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined.

  • May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.

Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
  • May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
  • 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. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). 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.
