Seattle Mariners Team Report - May 1
(Sports Network) - Seattle attempts to knock off the mighty Yankees in the
rubber match of their three-game series tonight in New York.
Despite three errors by the Yankees yesterday, Seattle still suffered an 8-5
defeat. Bret Boone homered for the second straight day and Dan Wilson drove in
two runs for the Mariners, who won the opener of the three-game series, 6-0,
Seattle had a two-game win streak stopped and lost for only the second time in
its last nine.
Jamie Moyer (3-2) had won his last three decisions, but took the loss after
allowing five runs on five hits and four walks in six innings. The veteran
lefthander did not allow a run after the first.
Seattle will counter New York's Mike Mussina tonight with young righthander
Joel Pineiro, who will be looking to win his third straight decision. The 24-
year-old hurler, who is 2-1 with a 4.02 ERA, is coming off his best outing of
the season, as he scattered four hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings in a 6-0
win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday.
In five career appearances against the Yankees, including three starts,
Pineiro is 2-0 with a 4.03 ERA.
Edgar Martinez is two hits away from 2,000 for his career.
Since the beginning of the 2000 season the Mariners are 18-12 against the
Yanks and have owned them in the Bronx, where they have won 12 of their last
14, including six of the last seven
