The Yankees are rolling. They’ve won five straight overall and look to extend their current streak while hoping to maintain their dominance of the Seattle Mariners. The Yanks have been crushing the baseball against the Mariners hitting .348 while averaging 9.0 runs during an eight-game winning streak at home versus Seattle. This will be the teams’ first meeting at the new Yankee Stadium aka Coors Field of the East.
New York has also dominated the Mariners on the mound during this streak. The Yankees have posted a 2.75 ERA in their last eight meetings and with Joba Chamberlain on the hill the Bronx Bombers are hopeful of another strong performance.This will be Joba’s first career appearance against Seattle.
The Mariners will counter with reliever turned starter Brendan Morrow who is 0-3 this season and will be making his fourth start following 16 relief appearances. His ERA is an astronomical 5.64
It’s doubtful that Seattle’s woeful offense will be able to take advantage of the new Yankee Stadium launching pad. The Mariners rank 29th in runs scored and 20th in homeruns. Seattle is middle of the pack with a .260 team batting average and their lack of punch is evident in a 44-29-2 record to the UNDER.
And while the Yanks rank in the top three in all of baseball in homeruns, runs per game and OPG, it usually takes some help from the other side to cash the OVER. The Yankees are just 6-4 to the UNDER in their last ten outings.
