Preview: Yankees @ Mariners (6/07/13)

The Yankees hope to keep the momentum going on this road trip with Hiroki Kuroda (6-4, 2.59 ERA) facing off against Jeremy Bonderman (0-1, 13.50 ERA). In his last start against Boston, Kuroda fell into a 3-0 hole before the game was called in the sixth due to rain (and freighting lightning) and the Yankees failed to provide any run support. He is winless in his last three starts.

Bonderman, the former Tigers starter, gave up seven runs on nine hits (including three home runs, a triple and three doubles) in 4 2/3 innings against Minnesota on Sunday. It was his first Major League start since 2010.

Robinson Cano put the brakes on a 2-for-20 skid in Thursday’s 6-1 win. He hit his 15th home run of the season in the third inning.

Notes on the game:

For nine straight games from May 25 to June 2, the Yankees didn’t score more than six runs. In the four games since, they have scored at least six runs three times, including Thursday night’s win.

Lyle Overbay is just 1-for-16 (.063) in his career against Bonderman.


Game kicks off at 10:10 PM (ET) on YES

Born and raised in Connecticut right on the Massachusetts boarder aka I've had to live with Red Sox fans my entire life. However, my dad is a lifelong Yankees fan and he raised me right! The long, storied history of the team and the legendary players who have worn the Pinstripes captivated me at a young age and never let me go. With a degree in journalism and broadcasting writing about the Yankees just made sense (@ThoseRJs)
