Hiroki Kuroda (10-7, 3.28 ERA) will get the start for the Yankees, and will look to win his fifth decision in a row. Kuroda has given up two earned runs or less in his last three starts, including his last outing against the Boston Red Sox on July 29. Although he did not factor in the decision, Kuroda was excellent, giving up seven hits and two earned runs in eight innings of work.
The Mariners will counter with their ace Felix Hernandez, (9-5, 2.79 ERA), who has won his last five decisions. Hernandez is putting up Cy Young type of numbers over the last two months, giving up less than two runs in eight of his last nine starts. In his last outing against the Kansas City Royals, Hernandez gave up five hits and two runs in seven innings of work.
