The New York Yankees are on the road as they open up a 3 game set with the Seattle Mariners starting on Thursday night. Both teams are on the outside looking in regarding a wild card spot and will want to head into the All-Star break on a high note.
These teams haven’t met since 2019, when the Yankees took 6 of the 7 meetings between the clubs.
The Yankees showed their offensive potential Tuesday as Giancarlo Stanton clubbed a 3-run homer off the railing of the second deck in the 1st inning, and Luke Voit had a career-high 5 hits and 3 RBI’s as the Yankees hammered the Mariners 12-1.
Aaron Judge’s hit an early 2-run homer and the Yankees held on late for a 5-4 victory on Wednesday.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
The Mariners have been tough to beat when Logan Gilbert takes the mound. Although the rookie has not been completely lights-out, Seattle has won the last 7 games he has started.
Even thought the Mariners have lost both games this series I still see this spot as good value.
Take Seattle at home.
