Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Seattle Mariners 6/21



Good morning Yankees family. The Seattle Mariners have done the New York Yankees some favors as of late beating up on and slowing down the Boston Red Sox in their previous series, but the Yankees have not shown much gratitude during this three-game series in the Bronx. No mercy from the Bronx Bombers thus far and hopefully there will be no mercy today as well as a pair of aces take the mound in the finale of the set. This afternoon in the Bronx the Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound to face off with the ace of the staff in Seattle in James Paxton. Let’s get to it here in the Bronx.

Severino was sharp once again in his last start hurling eight shutout innings in a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. Severino has not allowed more than three runs in a single game since May 19th and has only given up more than three runs one time all season. Dominating.


Paxton on the other hand had the shortest start of his season come in his last start lasting just 2.1 innings pitched with six hits and six runs, five of them earned, in a loss to the Boston Red Sox. Thanks a lot, James. Paxton has been sharp this season though and was 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA in his previous nine starts before his struggles against the Red Sox.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.


Enjoy the game, put some distance between ourselves and the Red Sox, and go Yankees!!
