Elias, Cano Help Mariners Beat Yanks
NEW YORK (AP) — Robinson Cano doubled and drove in two runs, Roenis Elias struck out 10 in seven impressive innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the New York Yankees 4-2 Thursday night.
Michael Saunders had three hits, including an RBI double, to help the Mariners win for the fifth time in six games following an eight-game skid. Seattle won both games in a rain-shortened series that marked Cano’s return to New York after signing a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners during the offseason.
The All-Star second baseman was booed again and finished the series 2 for 9 with three RBIs.
Seattle has won four straight at Yankee Stadium dating back to last season.
