A Mariners lineup vs. CC Sabathia, Yankees

The Seattle Mariners and their seven-game hitting streak meet CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees tonight, and manager Eric Wedge - who had Sabathia in Cleveland - was asked about the left-hander.

"Let's hope he's just a little bit off tonight," Wedge said.

Sabathia became an ace under Wedge and pitching coach Carl Willis, and remains one of those pitchers who wants the ball when it's tough. The Mariners are as tobugh a team today as they've been all year.

Wedge has gone as right-handed as he can, including catcher Miguel Olivo, who's had no success vs. Sabathia but has faced him more often than any other Seattle player.

Kevin Millwood will start for the Mariners, and here's who is playing with him:
