Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Seattle Mariners 8/25

No weekend is complete without the Yankees and the team will not disappoint this weekend as the team returns home to the Bronx to play host to the Seattle Mariners in a three-game weekend set. With both teams in a fight for the two Wild Card playoff spots in the American League this has all the makings of being a huge series for both teams. The Mariners added a lot of pieces before the July 31st trade deadline but so did the Yankees so it will be interesting to see how each of their respective set of moves plays out over the weekend. In the opener of the three-game set the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to make his second start since coming off the disabled list while the Mariners will counter with Ariel Miranda. Enjoy the game!

Sabathia pitched a quality start last time out after struggling for the better part of a month beforehand, presumably due to the pain in his knee. Sabathia will be making his second start off the disabled list tonight and the second start against the Mariners in 2017 after allowing just one run in five innings of work against Seattle on July 21st.

Miranda has struggled with command lately which usually doesn’t bode well for opposing pitchers against the Yankees inside Yankee Stadium. In Miranda’s last 14.2 innings pitched he has allowed 13 earned runs while also walking nine batters in the same span. Yes please.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Need a win, get a win. Go Yankees!!!
