After their late comeback Tuesday night, the Yankees look to keep their good fortunes going against the Mariners on Wednesday at 6:35 p.m. in the Bronx.
The Yankees were down two runs entering the bottom of the ninth last night, but Gio Urshela came through with a clutch two-run homer to center field. But the comeback wasn't done, as DJ LeMahieu hit his first walk-off in pinstripes with an RBI single to score Cameron Maybin. ...Manager Aaron Boone said before the game that Aaron Hicks could potentially make his return to the team at some point this weekend.

Who is starting for the Yankees?
RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (2.70 ERA/1.30 WHIP), who gets the spot start in place of James Paxton. Loaisiga impressed the Yankees during his last outing from the bullpen against the Angels on April 24. He provided three innings of scoreless ball, and allowed the Yankees to come back for a win.
Who is starting for the Mariners?
LHP Yusei Kikuchi (3.98 ERA/1.16 WHIP), the prized rookie that the Yankees took a shot at this offseason, but lost the sweepstakes to Seattle. He is having a pretty fine start to the season, especially in his last start against the Indians.
Kikuchi allowed just one run on three hits, while striking out 10 and walking one over seven innings of work.
The Yankees and Mariners play their series finale on Thursday, before the Rays come to the Bronx for their first series with the pinstripes this season.
