The New York Yankees lose to the Seattle Mariners and are swept

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 4-2.  Hiroki Kuroda started and was better but not great.  The bullpen was good and the offense didn't do much. 

Kuroda pitched six innings giving up four runs with three of them earned.  He allowed seven hits and had a walk with seven strikeouts and lost his third game of the season.  Matt Thornton pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit, Adam Warren pitched 1 2/3 innings striking out one and Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect inning. 

Roenis Elias started for the Mariners and pitched seven innings giving up six hits and two runs with one of them being earned.  He walked two and struck out ten and earned his second win of the season.  Yoervis Medina pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and Fernando Rodney pitched an inning giving up a hit and striking out one. 

Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit and an RBI, Derek Jeter had a hit and Alfonso Soriano had a hit.  Mark Teixeira had a hit and drew a walk, Brian McCann had a hit and an RBI and Yangervis Solarte had a hit.  Ichiro Suzuki had a hit, Brett Gardner drew a walk and Ellsbury hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Jeter committed an error. 

Michael Saunders had three hits and an RBI, Stefen Romero had a hit and Robinson Cano had a hit and two RBI.  Kyle Seager had a hit, Dustin Ackley had a hit and drew a walk and Brad Miller had a hit and an RBI.  Cano and Saunders hit a double and the Mariners were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Ackley and Saunders were caught stealing and Cano committed an error. 

Cano hit an RBI double in the first to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead.  Ellsbury hit a leadoff homerun in the bottom of the first to tie the game at one.  In the third Cano hit an RBI groundout to give the Mariners a 2-1 lead.  Miller hit an RBI single and Saunders an RBI double in the fourth.  It was 4-1 Mariners and the Yankees would score on a McCann RBI single in the sixth.  The final score was 4-2 and the Mariners swept the shortened two game series.  The Yankees will remain at home and begin a three game weekend series with the Tampa Bay Rays.  The first game will be on Friday night.
