Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

Edwin Encarnacion launched his 11th home run Tuesday in the Mariners' loss to the Yankees. Encarnacion's solo shot off of Masahiro Tanaka in the sixth inning put the Mariners ahead and marked his fifth long ball over his last 10 contests. The veteran slugger is off to an impressive .246/.380/.525 start this season and has held up physically even with the Mariners asking him to play first base more than he has in a few years.

New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Gio Urshela belted a mammoth game-tying, two-run home run in the ninth inning of the Yankees' comeback win over the Mariners on Tuesday. Anthony Swarzak gave up a one-out single to Gleyber Torres and made an 0-2 mistake to Urshela, who bombed one into Monument Park. The Yanks then won after Cameron Maybin singled, stole second base and scored on a two-out, walk-off single by DJ LeMahieu. Urshela has been a godsend for the Yankees, providing steadying defense at third base while hitting a surprising .360/.424/.547 with a couple homers over 27 contests.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Mariners are 0-7 in their last seven games in the Bronx.

New York

The Yankees are 38-18 in their last 56 games against the Mariners overall.

Prediction:

The Mariners are in a deep funk, dropping eight of their last nine games overall and seven of their last eight games on the road. Their bullpen continues to be an issue, including on Tuesday night when they couldn’t protect a 4-1 lead following a rain delay. Meanwhile, the Yankees have an All-Star group on the IL but continue to find ways to win. Now 13-4 in their last 17 games overall, I’m riding with the Bombers on Wednesday.

The Pick: New York Yankees -131
