The New York Yankees look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Yankees have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Yankees have won eight straight games when scoring more than three runs. Brett Gardner leads New York with 98 hits and 42 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira have combined for 114 RBI. The New York Yankees have split their last six home games. CC Sabathia takes the hill, and he’s 4-8 with a 5.47 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Sabathia is 12-5 with a 2.65 ERA and 144 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 31-14 in Hernandezs last 45 starts. The Yankees are 11-2 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series and 57-27 in Sabathias last 84 home starts. The Yankees are 10-1 in Sabathias last 11 starts vs. Mariners and the Mariners are 5-2 in Hernandezs last 7 road starts vs. Yankees.
I'm going with the over in this spot, as CC has been trash all season long and Felix has given up four or more earned runs in three of his last eight starts. This line seems a tad bit too small.
