The Mariners pitching staff has come up big for them all season, but now the M's are going to need more production from their starting lineup at the plate. Seattle's offense must get going on this road trip to compete with these talented offensive clubs. Especially after the Orioles offensive display, which was spear-headed by Gunnar Henderson, who hit three home runs in the Mariners series with Baltimore. The Orioles scored a total of 18 runs in the series, averaging six runs a game.

Seattle will now head to New York, as they will take on the Yankees, who also boast a potent lineup. The Yankees came into Sunday, tied with the Orioles for the most home runs in the league with 68 this season. Aaron Judge, the Yankees star center fielder, struggled in the month of April, but has heated up in the month of May, hitting .386, with seven home runs, and 12 RBIs, while posting an unreal 1.433 OPS.

Also, the Yankees right fielder Juan Soto, has been hot since the start of the season, slashing .311/.411/.552, with 11 home runs, 37 RBIs, and a .963 OPS this year. Soto of course was the Yankees big off-season acquisition coming over in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Now with Soto and Judge in the heart of their lineup, the Yankees have a big two headed monster for opposing pitchers to deal with.

With the M's pitching staff in need of run support on this road trip, here are three Mariners hitters who have been hot who could help give them a lift.
