The New York Yankees host the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night from Yankee Stadium, in the opener of their four-game series.
With little separating these two teams in the American League Wild Card hunt, this weekend has the potential to drastically shape how the Wild Card game looks come the fall.
Seattle now sits at 58-51, which puts them in 4th place in the AL West. The Mariners are 7.5 games back from the division best Astros but only 3 games back of the Athletics for the final wild card spot.
Seattle’s offense has not been great this year ranking 20th in runs per game, last in batting average and hits per game, but they have been propped up by ranking 13th in home runs per game.
Seattle continues to be without some key players though, with Kyle Lewis (knee), Shed Long Jr. (shin), and Evan White (hip flexor), all remaining out for the foreseeable future.
New York Yankees
The Yankees have won 5 of their 6 series since the All-Star break and continue to climb their way back into contention. New York is now 58-49, placing them at 3rd in the AL East and 6 games back from the Rays for the division lead. In the wild card race they are only 2 games back from the Athletics.
At the trade deadline the Yankees were very aggressive and brought in lefty sluggers Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo to try and help bolster the right handed dominant lineup.
Rizzo has already proven his worth as he has driven in a run in each of his first 6 games with the Yankees, a franchise record. New York is 5-1 since acquiring the first baseman from Chicago.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Mariners are 58-51 overall
- Mariners are 25-28 on the road
- New York is 58-49 overall
- New York is 29-24 at home
Free Seattle Mariners vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
New York finally is playing like the team that fans and analysts alike predicted when the season started. Their buyers mentality at the deadline has already proven worthwhile as Rizzo has 6 RBI’s through 6 games.
Cortes has been a star for the Yankees across most of his appearances, while Anderson is still getting used to Seattle.
Expect the Yankees to ride the home crowd and the offense to a win behind another strong start for Cortes.
