Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Seattle Mariners 9/7

The New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners will kick off a three-game weekend set out on the West Coast tonight inside Safeco Field. If a game starts in the middle of the night out on the East Coast and no one over here is even awake to watch it, did it really happen? We are about to find out as Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound for the Yankees to oppose James Paxton for the Mariners. Let’s get to it here inside Safeco Field.

Tanaka has been great over his last nine starts posting a 2.68 ERA while allowing two earned runs or less in seven of those starts during that span. Tanaka has also been especially tough against the Mariners specifically posting a 6-0 record with a 2.34 ERA against them in his career including a 3-0 record and a 2.17 ERA in four career starts inside Safeco Field.

Paxton will make his 26th start of the 2018 campaign tonight and just his second start since coming off the disabled list. In his first start back from the DL, Paxton looked sharp as he struck out ten in five innings of work against the Oakland Athletics in a quality start for the southpaw.

The game will be played at 10:10 pm ET inside Safeco Field 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 on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, I continue to hate West Coast games, and go Yankees!!
