Mariners poised to win series vs. Yankees

The Seattle Mariners are hot, at least  by Mariners standards, having won six of their last nine games and they're in position today to take two of three from the New York Yankees.

Heady stuff.

Hisashi Iwakuma starts for Seattle, with Jesus Montero catching, and the only real lineup change today is that shortstop Brendan Ryan has the day off and Munenori Kawasaki will fill in for him.

Here's today's lineup vs. RHP Ivan Nova.
