The New York Yankees hope for a successful trip to Seattle one week before the All-Star Break.
It’s one week before the All-Star Break, and the fourth-place New York Yankees have no excuse not to play well early this week. Tuesday marks the start of a three-game set with the Seattle Mariners, the worst-hitting team in MLB, so it’s a key time for New York to come together for a great series.
The standings certainly tell the same story. Seattle is third in the AL West and seven games behind the first-place Houston Astros. The fourth-place Yankees, meanwhile, are just a game above .500 and 10.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox.
