The Rockies will welcome the Seattle Mariners to town tonight in the first of a three-game series to begin their Interleague play.
This three-game series represents the first time the Rockies and Mariners have played an Interleague series since 6/12-14/09, a series the Rockies swept at Coors Field. The Rockies have won six of the last seven games the two teams have played, since 6/30/02 at SEA. Colorado is 12-13 all-time against the Mariners, including 7-4 at Coors Field. The Rockies did play the Mariners in a three game series at the very end of Spring Training and ended up going 1 – 2.
