It was bound to happen. The Yankees three-game winning streak came to an end this afternoon. (Haha). THE SEATTLE MARINERS HAVE WON A GAME! For the first time in 18 games, the Seattle Mariners won a baseball game. Led by their ace ‘King’ Felix, the Mariners used a five-run seventh to blow by the Yanks, 9-2. Phil Hughes gave the Yanks six innings of two-run ball, but gave up nine hits to a lackluster M’s offense. With the loss, the Yankees fall to 61-41.

Won't See Him In Pinstripes..


The Mariners were bound to win a game. It just stinks that it came against the Bombers. Phil Hughes didn’t have his best stuff today and the Yankee lineup faced one of the top arms in baseball. Coming into today, Hernandez was 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA at the new Yankee Stadium, so the deck was obviously stacked against the Yanks. The Bomber offense was only able to muster six hits, highlighted by doubles by Jorge and Curtis

As for Hughesy, well, he gave up more hits in six innings than the Yanks had allowed in the first two games. He only gave up two runs, but he was leaving fastballs over the plate. Cory Wade had a rough time in the seven, as he was charged with three runs. Boonie Logan gave up a base loaded triple which put the game out of reach. 

The Yankees are 4-2 on their home stand and have tomorrow off before welcoming the O’s for four games. Time to rest up.

Friday, 7:05: Jeremy Guthrie (4-14, 4.33 ERA) vs. AJ Burnett (8-8, 4.21 ERA)
