Mariners vs. Yankees, July 23 game thread

07232012 ms.jpgFinal: The Yankees take this series-opener 4-1. Ichiro finishes 1 for 4 in his first game for New York after sharply lining out to second base in his final at bat in the top of the ninth. Fittingly, he catches the final out. Kuroda (10-7) gets the win after striking out nine and allowing just three hits through seven strong innings. Thanks for following along.
Top of eighth: A mix of cheers and boos as Alex Rodriguez homers to left-center to make it 4-1 Yankees. That’s his 15th of the season and 644th of his career.
Top of seventh: Attendance is announced at 29,911. Ichiro grounded out to first in his third at bat.
Bottom of sixth: Kuroda gets Montero to bounce into a 1-4-3 double play to get out of the inning. He’s allowed just three hits — two to Jaso — so far.
Top of fourth: Seattle’s lead is short-lived as Mark Teixeira hit an RBI double (scoring Alex Rodriguez from second) to tie the game. Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones then followed up with an RBI singles. The rally ended when Ichiro popped to second in his second at bat and Russell Martin flew out to right. Yankees up 3-1.
Bottom of third: The Mariners take a 1-0 lead as a single to right by John Jaso plates Dustin Ackley from second. There was much anticipation as Ichiro’s throw came in, but it wasn’t in time. Jesus Montero had a line drive to right that went just foul before striking out to end of the inning. The Mariners stole two bases off Russell Martin in the frame..
Top of third: Ichiro gets a huge ovation before his first at bat. Before taking his first pitch he stepped out of the box, took off his helmet and bowed to the crowd in appreciation. After lining a single to center field, Ichiro stole second and advanced to third on a fielder’s choice. Derek Jeter couldn’t bring him in, however, as Dustin Ackley made a fine play on a ground ball up the middle.
Bottom of first: Sorry for the late post of the game thread. The big trade has put new bodies in new roles — mine being one of them — as we cover Ichiro’s first game in a Yankee uniform.
