SEATTLE - Oh for six with men in scoring position.

Oh for Seattle.

And oh woe are the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Jays arrived on Monday night fresh from two extra-inning walk-off wins in games started by two of the Detroit Tigers former Cy Young award winners and left Wednesday night after being swept by the Seattle Mariners.

Right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma and four relievers combined for a seven-hit 2-0 win over the Jays before 32,368 fans at Safeco Field.

Kendrys Morales hit R.A Dickey’s 15th pitch of the game for a two-run homer.

And that was it.

That was all.

Now this trip to the Great Northwest will do down in Jays annals along with Phil Bradley sliding into catcher Buck Martinez and breaking the catcher’s leg in 1985 at the KingDome or outfielder Rick Leach failing to show for a game in 1987.
