M's Drop 3 of 4 to Yanks

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE - Another stellar outing by Felix Hernandez was wasted as Seattle scored one run in a 2-1 loss to the New York Yankees.

Ichiro Suzuki scored what proved to the game-winning run in the ninth thanks to an RBI single from Catcher Chris Stewart.

Hernandez earned a no decision after pitching seven innings for Seattle with seven strikeouts and only one earned run.

Seattle opens up a three game series with the Houston Astros on Monday.

Here's the story from the AP:

SEATTLE (AP) - Chris Stewart had a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and David Phelps matched efforts with Felix Hernandez for six innings to help the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 on Sunday.

Ichiro Suzuki drew a walk from Yoervis Medina (1-2) to open the ninth. Jayson Nix sacrificed him to second. Then with two outs, Stewart bounced a grounder to through the left side as Suzuki, the former Mariners star, scored easily to help New York take three of four from Seattle.

Mariano Rivera allowed two hits and a walk in the bottom of the ninth in finishing for his 23rd save in 24 opportunities this season and majors-best 631st of his career. Rivera has converted 37 of 39 save chances in his career against Seattle.

David Robertson (4-1), who worked out of an eighth-inning jam, earned the victory.
