The New York Yankees breezed past the Seattle Mariners in fashion Tuesday night.
The offense and masahiro Tanaka published an impressive effort from the Mariners. They got started with 5 runs in the first few innings and then Tanaka took good care of the rest. Tanaka went 7 strong innings with only 3 hits allowed and no runs over the board for Seattle.
His strong excursion retains the Yankee bullpen for Wednesday. Unexpectedly, fellow countryman, Yusei Kikuchi was struck for 8 hits and 5 earned runs in 4 innings. Kikuchi has been a significant disappointment for the Mariners in his very first year in the majors. He excels after a year under his belt in the US in next season.
The Yankees fought to put away the Mariners on Monday. They do it, however, using a 5-4 victory. Since they didn’t have to break much of a sweat to blow out the Mariners last night was easier about the Yankees. For a group with the ability like the Yankees, that’s probably how it ought to be against the reduced Mariners. With this win, the Yankees advanced on this season to 87-47. The AL East is crown is official for all these.
There’s still something to play with for, though. The AL East is theirs, but the AL is up for grabs.

The Yankees are currently anticipating better things down the stretch out of James Paxton. The Mariner, who spent 6 years in Seattle, has been fine. They didn’t sign Paxton to be okay. In his final two seasons with the Mariners, Paxton submitted a 2.98 ERA and 3.76 ERA, which also added a no-hitter from the Blue Jays. Paxton will complete that year.
There simply aren’t enough begins left to get his ERA below 3.90 at the point. In any case, Paxton can be a significant contributor down the stretch. Ever since getting bombed by the Red Sox in Fenway, he has been exhibiting signs of progress.
Paxton has enabled less or 3 runs. On the street, Paxton shutdown a dangerous Dodgers’ offense in his impressive showing at Dodger Stadium in his most recent outing. He allowed two earned runs and struck out 11 to tie a season-high. The Yankees went on in that competition for a big 10-2 win.
Justus Sheffield will need to be mindful against the Yankees that day. They’ve been tattooing lefties, using a .274 batting average in 2019. In their past ten games, the Yanks struck .283 against left wing pitching. The Mariners hit only .186 against lefties, which benefits Paxton in this spot.
Sheffield is a former Yankee, that watched three appearances out of the bullpen last season. He didn’t make the most of the opportunity and has been belted for an ERA of both 10.12 in 2.2 innings. Sheffield has emerged as a reliever and newcomer with the Mariners thus far.
He was shaky with a 6.43 ERA, 2.29 WHIP, along with .444 OBA. Sheffield yielded seven hits, 3 walks, and 3 earned runs. He does not do enough to protect against a Yankees’ sweep on Wednesday. Ride the Yankees.
