GAME: Yankees (57-38, 1st, AL East, 6.0 GA) at Mariners (42-55, 4th, AL West, – 15.5 GG). GAME #: 98. SERIES: 1st of 3 games. MEETING: 4th (Yankees lead 2-1). WHEN: Monday, 7:10 p.m., Safeco Field. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Hiroki Kuroda (9-7, 3.46) vs. RHP Kevin Millwood (3-7, 4.15). STREAKS: Mariners W 2; Yankees L 4. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

The New York Yankees team that visits Safeco Field Monday features at least three future members of the Baseball Hall of Fame — SS Derek Jeter, 3B Alex Rodriguez and closer Mariano Rivera — and three ex-Mariners — Rodriguez, Raul Ibanez and Freddy Garcia — who should figure prominently.

Although a .273 hitter with 14 homers this season at age 36, Rodriguez, still a villain after all these years, has hit 32 home runs against his former team. Ibanez, with 12 this season, hit home runs on consecutive days against Seattle (May 11-12) when the teams met in New York (victimized Felix Hernandez and Blake Beavan).

Garcia, who will pitch against the Mariners Tuesday, opposing Felix Hernandez, is 5-3, 5.23 ERA in 10 starts against the Mariners since his July 27, 2004 trade to the Chicago White Sox.

Before the Mariners, coming off series wins against Kansas City and Tampa Bay, take another look at Garcia, they will face Hiroki Kuroda for the second time this season. Monday’s New York starter defeated Seattle 6-2 May 11. Kuroda will match throws with Kevin Millwood, seeking his first win since May 23. A closer look:

MARINERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (3-7, 4.15 ERA, 1.36 WHIP)

Kevin Millwood

In his 16th major league season and first with the Mariners, Millwood is making his 19th start and second against the Yankees. Millwood defeated New York 6-2 in the Bronx May 13 and is coming off an 8-7 loss to the Kansas City Royals July 18. Millwood is winless in his past nine starts (three losses, six no-decisions) and hasn’t won since defeating Texas May 23.

A native of Gastonia, NC., the 6-4, 230-pound Millwood was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 11th round of the 1993 amateur draft.

Millwood made his major league debut July 14, 1997, winning in relief for the Braves against Philadelphia. During his career, Millwood pitched for the Braves (1997-02), Philadelphia (2003-04), Cleveland (2005), Texas (2006-09), Baltimore (2010) and Colorado (2011) before joining the Mariners.

Millwood twice won 18 games in a season, going 18-7 for the 1999 Braves and 18-8 for the 2002 Braves. Millwood led the National League in starts with 35 in 2000, led the NL in shutouts in 2003 with three, led the American League in ERA in 2005 at 2.86, and the AL in losses in 2010 with 16.

Millwood represented Atlanta in the 1999 All-Star Game.

During his American League career, Millwood made 24 starts against the Mariners, posting an 8-13 record with a 4.91 ERA.

Millwood signed with the Mariners Jan. 24 as a free agent, and earned the fifth spot in the rotation with a strong performance during spring training.

Millwood has a career record of 166-147, 4.11 ERA.
