Gonzales vs German
Gonzales is 2-1 in his last four starts despite a 4.97 ERA and beat the Texas Rangers last Wednesday in Seattle. In seven innings, Gonzales gave up two runs and four hits while striking out five and walking one.
Gonzales is 0-1 with a 3.32 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees but will be pitching at Yankee Stadium for the first time.
He can be tough on anyone.

In nine road starts this season, Gonzales is 2-5 with a 3.83 ERA. He has a 5-5 record at night and a 3.97 ERA in 14 starts. The Mariners are 8-12 when he takes the mound.
German will be making just his third start of 2022. He was on the injured list from the start of the season until July 21 with right shoulder impingement syndrome.
In his last start, German allowed two runs on five hits in 4.2 innings to the Mets on Wednesday at Citi Field in a no-decision. He had seven strikeouts and two walks.
German has made one start and one relief appearance versus the Mariners in his career, going 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA.
This will be his first start of 2022 at Yankee Stadium. Both of his outings have been at night.

Mariners vs Yankees Prediction
German looked better in his second start since his lengthy stay on the injured list. He should be even sharper this time around and pitch the Yankees to victory following Sunday’s tough loss.
