According to STATS
According to STATS

Seattle Mariners at New York Yankees

  1. Seattle and New York are facing off for the first time this season after the Yankees won five of the seven matchups last season. Since 2017, the Mariners are just 3-11 (.214) at Yankee Stadium and have not won a series on the road against New York since 2016.
  2. The Mariners have lost six of their last seven games when allowing their opponents to score first and have scored first in three of their last 10 games. Seattle holds the seventh best record in MLB when scoring the first run in games this season, 37-12 (.755).
  3. Logan Gilbert has tied for the longest active streak with 5.0+ IP to start a season (21 games), Max Fried (ATL). Gilbert's 21-game streak is the longest streak to start a season by a Mariners' pitcher since 2014, Felix Hernandez (32-game streak).
  4. Despite losing nine of their last 15 games where the Yankees have recorded 7+ hits, New York still holds the sixth best record in MLB in those games, 47-19 (.712), and the best record in MLB when recorded 7+ hits at home this season, 24-6 (.800).
  5. Aaron Judge hit four home runs over the weekend and has now totaled 42 HR through his first 100 games of the season. Judge is just the fourth player in MLB history with 42 or more HR in a season before August, joining Barry Bonds (45 HR in 2001), Mark McGwire (45 HR in 1998), and Sammy Sosa (42 HR in 1998).
  6. In his last six starts, Gerrit Cole has a run support average of 9.00 and ranks second in MLB in total run support average (6.68), trailing only Jose Urquidy (7.04). Cole's 6.68 RSA is the second highest by a Yankees pitcher pre-August since 2012, Gerrit Cole in 2020, 8.49 RSA.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 8/1/2022 thru 8/3/2022

Seattle Mariners rookie Julio Rodriguez turned in a dynamic display at Dodger Stadium two weeks ago in the Home Run Derby.

The Mariners were anticipating how their standout outfielder would perform on another big stage in Yankee Stadium.

Instead, the Mariners will head into the opener of a three-game series with the New York Yankees on Monday night missing Rodriguez due to a bruised right wrist.

Rodriguez was injured when he was hit by a pitch by Houston reliever Rafael Montero in the eighth inning on Saturday. Although X-rays were negative, Rodriguez was so sore that he would not be able to hold a bat for at least five days.

Instead of playing a man short, the Mariners opted to place him on the injured list Sunday, meaning he would not face the Yankees this week and next week when the Mariners host New York.

"I think everybody knows -- your wrist, your hands -- you know how sensitive that area is when you've got to bat," manager Scott Servais said. "And let's do it right. Let's make sure he's fully healthy when he comes back."

Without Rodriguez, the Mariners took a 3-2 loss to the host Houston Astros on Sunday when Brennan Bernardino allowed an RBI single to Yordan Alvarez in the 10th inning after Seattle's Jesse Winker hit a tying two-run homer in the eighth.

"Our guys played with a lot of grit," Servais said.

The Mariners are 4-6 in their past 10 games since entering the All-Star break on a 14-game winning streak. Besides missing Rodriguez, Seattle was without leading hitter Ty France, who is day-to-day with swelling in his left wrist that might keep him out for the series in New York.

New York heads into a stretch where 18 of its next 21 games are against teams with winning records. They are coming off a disappointing 8-6 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. The Yankees were unable to get their 70th win and complete a four-game sweep when Clay Holmes allowed a go-ahead three-run homer to Salvador Perez in the ninth inning.

While Holmes has 17 saves in 20 chances this year, he struggled in July by posting a 7.00 ERA in 10 appearances.

Holmes' recent struggles may prompt the Yankees to add some more relievers by Tuesday's trading deadline, but their concern is with the here and now after they lost for the 11th time in 19 games.

"If we're able to do something, I'm sure I'll be excited about it," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "But my focus is on who we have right now. We've been one of the best teams, if not the best team, in the league, and we'll continue to be that whatever happens over the next 48 hours. And that's where my focus lies."

New York right-hander Domingo German (0-1, 8.22 ERA) will make his third start since returning from a shoulder injury to replace the injured Luis Severino. German has allowed seven runs on 11 hits in 7 2/3 innings in a pair of road starts against the Houston Astros and New York Mets.

German is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA in two career appearances against the Mariners.

Left-hander Marco Gonzales (6-10, 3.66 ERA), who has allowed two earned runs or fewer 15 times, goes for Seattle. He last pitched Wednesday, when he yielded two runs and four hits in seven innings in a win over the Texas Rangers.

Gonzales is 0-1 with a 3.32 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees.
