Mariners blow late lead, lose 4-3 to the Yankees

This was a tough one to swallow for the Mariners, given how dominant they’d been for most of the game until Felix Hernandez had to leave after six innings. We’re pretty sure Hernandez came out because he was still feeling the after-effects of that collision at first base with Lyle Overbay.

But regardless, the New York Yankees scored three runs in the seventh off Yoervis Medina and Charlie Furbush and that was the game. The Mariners go down to a 4-3 defeat and it’s a tough one given how hard they fought all night to knock C.C. Sabathia from the game after 6 1/3 innings.

The Mariners had a 3-0 lead when Sabathia left and it could have been more.

They managed 10 hits off the left-hander, including that two-run homer by Raul Ibanez. But there were many other opportunities to score that they just didn’t cash in on.

With Hernandez in the game, it looked like it wouldn’t matter.

But once Hernandez came out, it mattered indeed.
