The Seattle Mariners find themselves in a unique situation today, asking Felix Hernandez not to stop a losing streak but to complete a four-game sweep of the struggling Kansas City Royals.
Catcher Miguel Olivo will work with Felix, and the lineup behind him includes rookie Trayvon Robinson - a switch-hitter - against lefty Will Smith. First baseman Mike Carp will try to extend a streak of four consecutive games with an RBI- and no Mariner has had more than a four-game streak all season.
