Seattle starter Jamie Moyer will look to keep his impressive undefeated streak going when the Mariners resume their three-game interleague series with the visiting Montreal Expos.

Moyer allowed three earned runs and seven hits over five innings in the Mariners’ 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, but did not receive a decision. The 41-year-old left-hander threw 101 pitches, 60 for strikes.

“I made myself work,” Moyer said. “I missed with a lot of inside pitches, but I was able to keep the game close. The White Sox are a good club and to come back and beat them the way we did is a good win for us.”

Nonetheless, the performance stretched Moyer’s unbeaten run to eight straight starts, during which he is 3-0.

He has had some troubles during the stretch, giving up four runs on May 9 and six on May 15 in consecutive starts against the New York Yankees. However, he won his next three starts, allowing just three runs over 21 2-3 innings.

Moyer will hope that Seattle’s offense can produce a few more runs than it has recently.

The Mariners snapped a 29-inning scoreless drought Friday when Pat Borders knocked in the winning run with two outs in the ninth in their 1-0 victory over the Expos. The run was Seattle’s first since Scott Spiezio homered in the fifth inning of a 5-0 win over Houston on Monday night.

John Olerud went 3-for-4 for the Mariners, who have won four of their last six games.

Terrmel Sledge went 2-for-3 and Brad Wilkerson doubled for the Expos, who have lost four of six. However, Montreal has won six straight against left-hander starters.
