After going 5-0-1 in a six-series stretch from April 25-May 16, the Mariners are 1-2-4 in their past seven, have fallen from second place to fourth in the AL West, and are in danger of losing another set when they close out a four-game stand with the New York Yankees Sunday. While the Yankees have taken two of three, including a 3-1 decision Saturday, Felix Hernandez will go for Seattle in the finale, always a good thing.
