New York Yankees 5 — Seattle Mariners 2
Jayson Nix came up in the 8th and brought in 3 in today’s 5-2 win over the Seattle Mariners.
Over 5 innings, Ivan Nova gave up just 2 hits but his outing was shorter than he would have liked because he would also walk 6 with his 107 pitches. The 2 runs that Nova allowed were on a bases-loaded walk and a ground out in the 1st. The Mariners would not have another hit until the 9th inning. David Phelps provided 1.1 innings of perfect baseball with two strikeouts as he continues to be a reliable presence in the bullpen and earned the win today. David Robertson pitched a solid 8th inning with two strikeouts. Rafael Soriano would give up one hit and strikeout one to get his 26th save of the season.
