The Mariners have not announced their starter for the game.
New York Yankees, will they be able to overturn their recent trends and win?
The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Yankees have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The New York Yankees have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. With less than a month left in the regular season, the team can’t afford to drop a game to the struggling Mariners if they do not want to fall behind the Astros in the race for home-field advantage. They will go into this game with a lot of confidence because they have won 21 of their last 27 games in Seattle. New York has one of the best offenses in the league. The team’s .272 batting average is third in the league. Their .344 on-base percentage is also third, while their .489 slugging percentage is second in the league. The 767 runs they have scored are the most in the league. But, New York’s pitching hasn’t been as good as the team’s offense and is also the reason they are struggling at the moment. Opponents have a .252 batting average against the Yankees, which is 14th in the league. Their 4.49 ERA is 15th, while their 44 quality starts are 21st in the league.
