Game Thread, Sunday June 9th, Yankees at Mariners

After their recent stretch of miserable play at the hands of the Mets and the Red Sox, the Yankees have turned things around. They're 6-4 over their last 10 games and back in second place in the AL East. Unfortunately, today's game has loss written all over it. David Phelps toes the rubber for the Bombers. Phelps has been erratic as a starter and struggles to give the Yankees depth. He's not the problem, though. The problem is that the Mariners will send none other than Felix Hernandez to the mound. Hernandez has been vintage this season. His numbers are what you'd expect from one of the game's best pitchers. To my eyes his WHIP of 1.05 stands out the most. That's tough to do for a starter. The Yankees will need to seize their opportunities quickly. King Felix won't make many mistakes. Use this as today's game thread. Enjoy!
