Seattle Mariners at Milwaukee Brewers
When and Where: Tuesday, June 25, Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisc., 8:10 p.m. EDT.

Gonzales looks to run winning streak to four starts for M’s
It has been a tale of two seasons in the first half-season for Marco Gonzales (8-6, 4.38 ERA), who is looking for a second four-start winning streak to bracket a five-start losing streak that was part of a personal six-game skid.

The left-hander continued his winning ways Thursday against Kansas City, holding the Royals to two runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings of an 8-2 victory. In his three wins, Gonzales has limited opponents to six runs in 19 1-3 innings and also has gotten healthy run support with 21 runs from the Mariners (35-47).
In the seven starts that comprised his six-game losing streak, he was backed with only eight runs.
“It’s been a process of adapting and adjusting my game plan,” Gonzales told The Athletic. “I don’t want to show the same guy (the same thing) twice.
“I think something that’s overlooked with me is my ability to adapt,” he added. “Hopefully, the past couple starts have shown I can bring a different thing every game.”
Gonzales’ lone interleague start this season was a disaster as the Cubs knocked him around for six runs — three earned — in 1 2-3 innings as the Mariners absorbed an 11-0 pounding May 1. The southpaw is facing Milwaaukee for the first time since pitching for St. Louis in 2017 when he yielded five runs and six hits — including three home runs — in 3 1-3 innings and leaving without a decision in an 8-5 Cardinals loss.
Seattle has lost nine straight interleague games dating back to last year and is 0-4 this season with two losses apiece to San Diego and the Cubs.
