Yankees at Mariners

UPDATE: 10:42- I forgot to mention this before but Hideki Matsui is tied for the major league lead in homeruns against lefties with 12 homeruns. Also when Hideki Matsui homered on Wednesday he joined A-rod, Big Tex and Nick Swisher as Yankees with at least 25 homeruns. The last time this happened was 1938 when Lou Gehrig, Joe Dimaggio, Bill Dickey and Joe Gordon did it. The New York Yankees begin a 3 game series in Seattle tonight and a 6 game roadtrip. A.J. Burnett is on the mound against Felix Hernandez. If A.J. was pitching right it would be a great matchup, maybe this is the game where he puts it together and goes on a good run. I want to wish Peter Abraham good luck on his new job and hope that whoever replaces him can do half the job he has done but he is here for the next couple of weeks and the pregame notes and lineup are coming via him and the Lohud Yankees Blog. If you haven't already done so by the way please follow me on twitter and facebook. The Yankees are 5-2 against Seattle this season and were just in Seattle from Aug 13-16th. The Yankees magic number is 10, they are 7 up on the Red Sox for first place in the AL east and 6 up on the Angels for homefield advantage. MO needs 2 more strikeouts for 1,000 in his career. MO has allowed on run in his last 33 games and 33 innings. He has given up 15 hits, walked 8 and struckout 32. This guy is truly amazing, it has been a pleasure to watch him all of these years. The Yankees lead the majors with 48 come from behind victories. The Yankees are 41 games over 500 and haven't been 42 over since the end of the 2002 season. Hideki Matsui hit his 25th homerun of the season on Wednesday. He tied Don Baylor for most homeruns as a DH for the Yankees, Baylor did it in 1984. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Damon(LF) Tex(1B) A-rod(3B) Matsui(DH) Swisher(RF) Cano(2B) Cabrera(CF) Molina(C)
