Mariners Maul Yankees

‘Monday, September 8, 2008 – On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners defeated the New York Yankees, 5-2. (Okay, that wasn’t much of a mauling, but hey, the lowly Mariners got the win over the sinking Yankees!)

Ryan Feierabend>

Ryan Feierabend got the start for the Mariners, and kept the Yankees in check over seven innings. He gave up a homerun to Derek Jeter in the first inning, and a homerun to Xavier Nady in the second, and that’s it. Alex Rodriguez went 0-3 with a walk.

Meanwhile, the Mariners put together several nice rallies of their own off of Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina.

Adrian Beltre hit his 25th homerun of the season - a 2 run shot that also plated Yuniesky Betancourt, in the third inning, to tie the game.

Jose Lopez came through with a homerun in the 4th inning…and another in the 8th.

In between, hiro Suzukistill trying to get to 200 hits with less than 20 games to go now, had a single and was plated by Raul Ibanez in the fifth inning.

The Mariners are now 58-86, the Yankees, 76-67 and in fourth place in their division.
