New York Yankees lose third straight as they leave a small army on base

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 7-1.  The game was a lot closer and a combination of the Yankees leaving runners on and the game getting away later on in the game made it look like a blowout.  Luis Severino started for the Yankees and pitched ok and the bullpen wasn't very good.  Brett Gardner had two hits to lead the offense. 

Severino pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up eight hits and four runs with a walk and two strikeouts.  He took his second loss of the season. Kirby Yates pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run with a walk and a strikeout and Tyler Olson pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up three hits and two runs with two walks. 

Nathan Karns started for the Mariners and pitched five innings giving up five hits and a run with four walks and seven strikeouts.  Karns won his first game of the season.   Tony Zych pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and two walks with a strikeout, Vidal Nuno pitched 1 1/3 innings striking out one and Joel Peralta pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout.  Mike Montgomery pitched an inning giving up a walk. 

Gardner had two hits, an RBI and drew two walks, Mark Teixeira drew two walks and Brian McCann drew a walk.  Carlos Beltran had a hit, Dustin Ackley drew a walk and Starlin Castro had a hit.  Didi Gregorius had a hit, Chase Headley had a hit and drew a walk and Gregorius hit a double.  Gardner hit a homerun and the Yankees were 0-12 with runners in scoring position and left 12 men on base.  Headley had a stolen base and Gregorius committed an error. 

Nori Aoki drew a walk, Seth Smith had a hit and drew a walk and Franklin Gutierrez had a hit and two RBI.  Robinson Cano had two hits and an RBI, Nelson Cruz had two hits and drew a walk and Adam Lind had two hits and an RBI.  Chris Iannetta had three hits, three RBI and drew a walk, Ketel Marte had a hit and Smith, Cruz and Gutierrez eac h hit a double.  Iannetta hit a homerun and the Mariners were 3-13 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.  Marte had a stolen base. 

In the first Gardner hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Cano hit an RBI single to tie the game at one.  In the fifth Iannetta hit a two run homerun to give the Mariners a 3-1 lead.  Lind hit an RBI single in the sixth and it was 4-1 Mariners.  Gutierrez hit a sac fly in the seventh to make it a 5-1 game, Iannetta hit an RBI single in the eighth and in the ninth Gutierrez hit an RBI double to make it 7-1 and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play game two of three on Saturday afternoon.  The Yankees will try and snap a three game skid and even the series.
