Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager was 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts against CC Sabathia heading into Tuesday’s game against the Yankees and their ace pitcher.
“The first time I faced him it didn’t exactly go too well, so he won that one,” Seager told “Bob and Groz” on Tuesday. “But I got to see him. It’s always different – you can watch all the film you want but once you get in there and you see a guy, you see the angle [the ball] comes off and all that stuff, it’s always better once you’ve seen a guy.”
Seager broke a scoreless tie in the third inning when he ripped a two-out RBI double to right-center field.
The left-handed-hitting Seager was in the lineup and hitting third despite a southpaw in Sabathia on the hill. As Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss in the video below, that’s a reflection of how important Seager has been to Seattle’s lineup this season.
