GAME: Mariners (50-57, 4th, AL West, – 12.0 GB) at Yankees (61-43, 1st, AL East, 6.5 GA). GAME #: 108. SERIES: 1st of 3 games. MEETING: 7th (Yankees lead 4-2). WHEN: Friday, 4:05 p.m., Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (Seattle, 4-8, 3.90) vs. LHP CC Sabathia (New York, 10-3, 3.57). STREAKS: Mariners W 7; Yankees W 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

Ichiro went 3-for-12 in his first series against the Mariners at Safeco Field last week following his trade, and has lost 11 points off of his batting average since joining the Yankees. Hitting .250 with New York (vs. .261 with Seattle), Ichiro will face Seattle for the first time at new Yankee Stadium.

“I think he’s done fine,” manager Joe Girardi said of Ichiro’s performance with the Yankees so far. “I believe he’s had a hit in every game that he’s played. He’s played a good right field and we’ve played him (once) in left. I don’t think he’s gotten really caught up with coming to New York, which sometimes players do. I think he’s handled that well, and I think he’s fit in well.”

The Yankees will start LHP CC Sabathia, who has yet to face the Mariners this season and who is coming off a poor outing against the Red Sox. Sabathia went 2-0, 1.20 against the Mariners last year.

The Mariners will counter with Kevin Millwood, who held the Royals to one run in 6.1 innings his last time out (Ichiro, by the way, is 32-for-81, .395 lifetime vs. Millwood). A closer look:

Kevin Millwood

In his 16th major league season and first with the Mariners, Millwood is making his 21st start and third against the Yankees. Millwood defeated the Yankees 6-2 May 13 in New York, lost to the Yankees 4-1 at Safeco Field July 23, and is coming off a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals July 28.

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.

YANKEES: LHP CC Sabathia (10-3, 3.57 ERA, 1.25 WHIP)

CC Sabathia

In his 12th major league season and fourth with the Yankees, the 32-year-old Sabathia will make his 19th start and first against the Mariners. Sabathia has taken three  no-decisions in his past four outings and is coming off a non-verdict against the Boston Red Sox July 28 at Yankee Stadium.

A native of Vallejo, CA., the 6-7, 290-pound Sabathia originally signed with the Cleveland Indians as the 20th pick in the first round of the 1998 amateur draft. He pitched in the Cleveland system until April 8, 2001, when he made his major league debut in a 4-3 Cleveland win over the Baltimore Orioles. Sabathia did not factor in the decision.

A six-time All-Star and the 2007 American League Cy Young award winner, Sabathia went 107-71 for Cleveland between 2001-08, winning a high of 19 games (19-8) in 2007, when he posted a 2.70 ERA and threw a league-high 241.0 innings.

The Indians traded Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers July 7, 2008, and Sabathia signed with the Yankees as a free agent that winter. The deal, for seven years and $161 million, made Sabathia the highest-paid pitcher in history.

Sabathia produced three consecutive outstanding years in the Bronx, going 19-8 (2009), a career-best 21-7 (2010) and then 19-8 last season. His 19 wins in 2009 and 21 in 2010 led the American League.

Sabathia pitched his best game against the Mariners July 26, 2011. He had a perfect game through 6.1 innings, retiring the first 19 batters he faced while battling through two rain delays. He ended up with a one-hitter and 14 strikeouts.

Sabathia, who has a career record of 186-99, has finished in the top five in Cy Young balloting five times during his career.

  • 2012: Sabathia has pitched into the seventh inning in 12 of his 18 starts and has allowed three or fewer earned runs 12 times. He had his best start May 10 vs. Tampa Bay: no earned runs and seven hits in 8.0 innings. Sabathia has allowed four or more earned runs six times, including his last start.
  • LAST START: July 28 vs. Boston, no-decision in an 8-6 Yankee defeat; six earned runs on eight hits over 6.0 innings; six strikeouts, two walks, one home run; 104 pitches, 69 for strikes.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: July 26, 2011, defeated Seattle 4-1 at Yankee Stadium; one earned run, 14 strikeouts, 102 pitches, 71 for strikes.
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 11-4, 2.42 ERA in 19 starts covering 130.0 innings; 112 strikeouts to 35 walks; 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings; 1.12 WHIP; 10 home runs.
  • AT YANKEE STADIUM: 31-9, 3.03 ERA in 55 starts covering 391.1 innings; 8.4 strikeouts per nine innings; 365 strikeouts to 105 walks; 1.09 WHIP; 29 home runs.
  • LOVES TO FACE: Michael Saunders (1-for-11, .091 BA), Miguel Olivo (3-for-24, .125 BA), Chone Figgins 6-for-21 (1.88 BA).
  • HATES TO FACE: Brendan Ryan (4-for-8, .500 BA), Casper Wells (1-for-2, .500 BA).
