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, on Monday.

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
