What’s at stake for Smoak, Mariners on road trip

First baseman Justin Smoak’s hot streak has coincided with the Mariners winning five of seven games on their recently completed homestand.

Smoak is 11-for-31 (.354) with a home run and three doubles over his last nine games, raising his average 52 points during that stretch. The Mariners, meanwhile, hadn’t won a series before taking three of four from the Angels and then two of three from Baltimore.

Now comes the challenge of doing it on the road, where the Mariners will play 14 of their next 17 games.

Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil pick up the conversation from there.
