MLB Regular Season, Wednesday at T-Mobile Park Seattle, Washington at 4:10 PM (EDT)
The Line: New York Yankees -244 / Seattle Mariners +200 -- Over/Under: 10
A pair of American League teams in vastly different situations close out an early week set in the Pacific Northwest. The New York Yankees are on the road as they finish a three-game set against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday afternoon. In the opening game of the series Monday night, it was the Yankees earning a 5-4 victory to draw first blood. The pitching matchup for the middle game of the series Tuesday night saw a battle of Japanese pitchers as Masahiro Tanaka took the mound for the Yankees against the Mariners’ Yusei Kikuchi. First pitch in that contest was scheduled for 10:10 pm ET.
A Much Improved Yankees Team To Prevail Again?
New York improved to 3-4 on this nine-game west coast road swing as they prevailed in the opening game of this series. They will be looking for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Yankees have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The New York Yankees have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. The Yankees entered Tuesday holding a 9.5-game advantage over Tampa Bay in the AL East race. New York cranked three more homers in the victory on Monday night as Mike Ford (his seventh and eighth) went deep twice while Gleyber Torres cranked his 33rd long ball of the season. J.A. Happ (11-8) earned the win as he allowed three runs on two hits with three walks and seven strikeouts over five innings. Aroldis Chapman, the fourth Yankees reliever, fanned two in a scoreless ninth for his 36th save of the year.
