Yankees Lose to Mariners in Extras

It took 12 innings, but the Mariners pulled out a win over the Yankees, 2-1.

Ivan Nova started for the Yankees going for win number 16.  Even though he didn’t earn it, he did have a quality start, scattering five hits over the 7.1 innings.

The first run of the game didn’t come until the bottom of the fourth. Miguel Olivio stepped up to the plate with Adam Kennedy on third when Nova threw a wild pitch. Despite Russell Martin’s hustle, Kennedy crossed the plate giving the Mariners a 1-0 lead.

The next run, and only Yankee run came in the seventh inning on Nick Swisher’s 23rd homerun of the season, tying the game. Nova would hold the Mariners scoreless for one more inning, but got into some trouble in the eighth.

After letting up a double and intentionally walking Ichiro Suzuki, Nova was pulled for David Robertson.  Robertson came into the game with men on first and third and only one out.  He fought off the next two batters, getting a pop-out and a strikeout to hold  the game at 1-1.

The game would stay at a stalemate until the 12th inning with Corey Wade on the mound for the Yankees.  Luis Rodriguez led off, and ended the inning with one swing of the bat.

That was his only homerun of the year, but it couldn’t have come at a better time. That sealed the deal, as the Mariners won 2-1.

With that loss, the Yankees stay four games up on the Red Sox in the AL East.  Their magic number is 11 to clinch the division.

The Yankees play next at Toronto on Friday. First pitch at 7:07pm, pre-game at 6:30pm.  You can catch all your New York Yankees action on 104.5 “The Team” ESPN Radio!
