Yankees Rally to Beat Mariners
Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Lyle Overbay delivered a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees rallied after Felix Hernandez left following a couple of odd twists, beating the Seattle Mariners 4-3 Tuesday night.
Hernandez exited after six innings with a 3-1 lead, having outpitching CC Sabathia in the first matchup between the former Cy Young Award winners.
Hernandez, however, appeared to hurt himself in the sixth when he fielded a comebacker, pivoted and threw to second for a forceout. The Seattle ace twice kicked his left leg near the mound, trying to get loose, and seemed to say “ouch” a few times.
