Mariners-Yankees Podcast: Does Seattle Take Losing Streak Home?


The Yankees began their ten game homestand with a series victory over the Oakland Athletics. Now, they will try to gain ground on the Red Sox in the division as they host the Seattle Mariners who have lost their last fifteen game. This is a quite a contrast to the Mariners’ team that took two of three from the Yankees at SAFECO Field back in late May. Most, if not all Yankee fans expect them to sweep this series! However, you know by now I am not one who easily predicts sweeps. That is especially the case when the Bombers have to face a pitcher like Felix Hernandez in the final game of the series.
