The Seattle Mariners and the New York Yankees will play the 2nd game of the series at the Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. The Yankees took the win 7-2 in the first game of the series. Aaron Judge hit his major league-leading 43rd home run and Jose Trevino had his first multihomer game.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 70-34 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.34 runs per game. They're batting for .245 AVG, 545 runs scored in 839 hits and 175 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .297 with 42 home runs and 91 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.29 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. All-Star Nestor Cortes allowed two runs in five innings against the Mariners and leads the pitching staff with a 2.53 ERA, 111 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Yanks.
Probable Pitcher: Jameson Taillon (10-2, 3.72 ERA)
Taillon will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for New York. Taillon pitched six scoreless innings against the Royals on Thursday, giving up just four hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts. He had no bearing on the choice. He has a record of 2-0 with an ERA of 1.38 and 15 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Mariners in his career.
The Mariners get here with a 55-49 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.06 runs per game. They're batting for .235 AVG, 414 runs scored in 796 hits and 110 home runs, ranking #23 in offense in the league, behind the Tampa Bay Rays. Julio Rodriguez leads with 57 RBI and 18 home runs and batting for .271 avg. Ty France has the best batting average with .308.
Defensively are allowing 3.85 runs per game, ranking #5 in the league. Logan Gilbert leads the team with 10 wins and pitching for a 2.78 ERA and 118 strikeouts.
Probable Pitcher: Logan Gilbert (10-4, 2.78 ERA)
Gilbert will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Mariners. Gilbert pitched six innings against Houston on Thursday, giving up two runs on five hits, two walks, and six strikeouts while not influencing in the decision. He has not allowed any runs on 1 hit with 8 strikeouts in 7 innings versus the Yankees in his career. He has been credited with the win.
Seattle Mariners are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Seattle's last 6 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.
The total has gone OVER in 9 of NY Yankees' last 10 games at home.
NY Yankees are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the American League.
The Yankees offense continue to stay hot as they have scored an average of 8 runs per game in their last 4 games and have been playing great at home where they hold a 41-13 record. They'll send Jameson Taillon to the mound who just pitched 6 scoreless innings in his last start vs Royals and has dominated the Mariners in his career holding a 1.38 ERA against them. The Mariners struggled vs German and the Yankees bullpen but they will get some help from his best pitcher Logan Gilbert who should slow down the bombers offense. The Mariners are missing 3 of their best players so it will be tough to keep up with the Yankeed offense, however, I expect Gilbert to keep this game close and the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
