Yankees vs. Mariners: Aug 09

By Adam Ortega

Onto Seattle we go for a late-night play on Tuesday evening. The Yankees come into the game against the Mariners looking to right the ship as they have been on a five-game skid. For the Mariners, they enter this game going 5-5 in their last ten games. A series win for either of these clubs would go a long way to making a final push to win their respective divisions.

The pressure is mounting for the Yankees as they send out their ace, Gerrit Cole (9-4, 3.56 ERA, 1.04 WHIP). He'll get the opportunity to re-establish the dominance on the mound, which he has exhibited throughout his career. Unfortunately for Cole, his last time on the hill is one he would like to forget. The best way for Cole to get back on track is to get his fastball going again. Mixing in the occasional slider will have the bats of the Mariners guessing all night.

For the Mariners, they will try and close the gap between themselves and the division-leading Houston Astros. To do so, they will send out one of the best arms in the game today, Louis Castillo (5-4, 2.95 ERA, 1.08 WHIP). Do not let his record fool you; Castillo was recently traded from one of the worst teams in baseball, the Cincinnati Reds. His former team's lack of run support significantly impacted his win/loss record. Castillo, too, will be throwing heat like his counterpart from the Yankees. The question remains, will the bats of the Yankees be able to catch up to the baseball?

Statistically, the Yankees come in as the second-best offensive team in baseball, while the Mariners come in at the number fifteen spot. I still feel like the Yankees hold a lot of value regarding boosting our bankroll. I'm going to lean on Gerrit Cole bouncing back in this spot and allowing the bats of the Bronx Bombers to help get the win. Have a great week, and thanks for your support!
