Right-hander, who is approaching a career high in innings, struggles for the second consecutive start against the Yankees. 

Seattle's tall righty allowed a season-high seven runs in a 9-4 defeat to the Yankees on Monday

at T-Mobile Park, a frightening figure given that his previous high was six against the same team last week

 Gilbert's four-plus inning start was his shortest since Aug. 27, 2021, 

 and none of them were clean 1-2-3 frames, though he did get the first two outs three times. 

However, opposing teams entered the night with an.802 OPS against him with two outs, 

and the Yankees went 3-for-6 with a single, double, home run, and walk against him in such situations on Monday. 

The putaway pitch escaped him more frequently than not.
