Taillon will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for New York. Taillon did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Mariners, allowing six runs (five earned) on two hits while striking out six and walking four over 4.2 innings. He is 2-0 with an ERA of 3.57 and 21 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Mariners in his career.
The Mariners get here with a 59-51 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.05 runs per game. They're batting for .233 AVG, 445 runs scored in 850 hits and 122 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 .306.
Defensively are allowing 3.88 runs per game, ranking #5 in the league. Logan Gilbert leads the team with 10 wins and pitching for a 3.09 ERA and 120 strikeouts.
Probable Pitcher: Logan Gilbert (10-4, 3.09 ERA)
Gilbert will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mariners. Gilbert did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's game against the Yankees, allowing six runs on seven hits while striking out two and walking four across 5.1 innings. He has a 1-0 record with an ERA of 4.38 and 10 strikeouts in 2 appearances against the Yankees in his career.
NY Yankees are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Seattle.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of NY Yankees' last 6 games against an opponent in the American League.
The total has gone OVER in 14 of Seattle's last 19 games against an opponent in the American League East Division division.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Seattle's last 7 games played on a Monday when at home.
The Yankees have struggled lately and have lost 5 games in a row. For this game they'll send Jameson Taillon to the mound who got rocked by the Mariners in his last start. The Mariners haven't been that great lately but beat the Yanks earlier this season but Logan Gilbert who's starting this game got pounded by the Yankees with 6 runs in 5 innings. Both starters should be able to pitch better this time but the total has been set too low. However I gotta go with the Yankees as they should bounce back and avoid a 6 straight loss.
