After failing to come through with runners in scoring position earlier in the game, Nix finally produced a clutch hit. Kelley left a 2-2 pitch over the middle of the plate and Nix’s liner scored Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira. It was Nix’s first hit in eight at-bats during the Yankees’ trip.

Jeter also homered in the first inning, his eighth of the season, off Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma.
