Seattle Mariners 2 — New York Yankees 6

 

Felix Hernandez, nicknamed “King Felix,” was just that in New Yankee Stadium until tonight’s 6-2 win over him  and his Seattle Mariners.

 

Entering tonight’s game, Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez had a 3-0 record with a 0.38 ERA in 3 starts at New Yankee Stadium. In 6.2 innings, the Yankees managed 11 hits for 4 runs in the first victory over Hernandez in 4 starts in the new home. The big blow of the night came in the 6th inning with the Yankees trailing by 1 with 2 outs and 2 on. Raul Ibanez took a first-pitch fastball to right-center for a three- run home run that changed the game in the Yankees favor. Robinson Cano also went a perfect 4 for 4 with a double. Andruw Jones hit a pinch-hit two-run home run to put the Yankees lead well out of reach from the Mariners.

 

Hiroki Kuroda went 7 strong innings in which the 2 runs were given up via the home run. Dustin Ackley opened tonight’s game with a leadoff home run to left field. Former Yankee and top prospect Jesus Montero used the swing that would have made Yankee Stadium very comfortable for him as he hit a home run to right field.
