Game 27: Yankees vs. Mariners
After last night’s rainout, the Yankees and Mariners will finish up what has turned into a two-game series tonight, with Robinson Cano’s club now scheduled to pop back into the Bronx on June 2 to make up the postponement.
The Yankees skipped David Phelps and are giving the ball to Hiroki Kuroda tonight, while the Mariners are staying in rotation and starting Roenis Elias. That gives the Yanks a break, as they’ll miss Felix Hernandez, who is instead going up against the Astros tomorrow in Houston. Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the Yankees’ lineup, as three days off have helped out his sore left hand.
The game will be televised on the YES Network and the MLB Network, and can be heard on WFAN.
Here are tonight’s lineups:
Michael Saunders CF
Roenis Elias LHP (1-2, 3.54)
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Hiroki Kuroda RHP (2-2, 5.28)
