Yankees 9, Mariners 5: New York piles on five late runs, ends Casey Kotchman’s errorless streak

Seattle not only lost today’s game, but saw Casey Kotchman’s MLB record of errorless games played at first base come to an end.
Kotchman had played 274 consecutive errorless games before a Curtis Granderson grounder ate him up in the eighth inning. The Yankees tacked on a pair of runs that frame to put things out of reach. The last time Kotchman made an error at first base was on June 20, 2008 when playing for the Braves in Philadelphia.
The M’s lost today, though, because they could not get to the Yankee bullpen after chasing starter Javier Vazquez three-plus innings in. They had a chance in the eighth when Michael Saunders was up with two on and two out, representing the tying run.
But with the count full against closer Mariano Rivera, Saunders popped a ball up and it was caught in foul territory by second baseman Robinson Cano.
Seattle scored a meaningless run in the ninth.
M’s are now 7-4 under manager Daren Brown.
