Tarp is still on the field.
And now at 6:22 p.m. … the tarp is being removed
There’s drama in the Bronx!!!
46 degrees at game time. It is not warm. Yes, I’m a wimp.
Cano was booed lustily by the small but angry fan base here. He struck out and that made them happy. Sabathia worked a 1-2-3
A 1-2-3 inning for Young. Fans were chanting “You sold out!” at Cano because they seem to have forgotten which team they cheer for and how it operates. As my cousin used to say, “They are being ironical.”
Mariners 0, Yankees 0
M’s go 1-2-3 .
Chris Young gives up a towering “text” from Mark Texeiria. Yes that was a John Sterling reference. I’m sorry. The solo home runs give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.
M’s get a two runners on as Zunino and Ballgame come up with singles, but Almonte struck out (predictably) and Romero popped out.
The Yankees execute a double steal with Brian Roberts on third and Brett Gardner on first. Zunino’s throw to second base bounced short and past Bloomquist, allowing Roberts to trot home.
Yankees 2, Mariners 0
M’s get a couple of runners on but can’t do anything as Seager strikes out.
Young withstands a two-out double and walk to get out of the inning.
Yankees 2, Mariners 0
Big inning for the Mariners. Zunino got an infield single on an overturned call via replay. Willie Ballgame doubled to right, Almonte put down a bunt for an infield single to l0ad the bases. Amid the boos, Cano scored a run on a ground ball to first. Corey Hart drove in two more with a double to right-center. And Smoak scored Hart with a single to right. M’s lead 4-2
Young works a 1-2-3 inning
Mariners 4, Yankees 2
M’s fail to get a run across with runners on first and third and no outs. Bloomquist struck out, Almonte struck out and Romero flew out. If the M’s lose this game, look back at that inning as a major reason why.
The Mariners tacked on some much needed insurance runs in the seventh inning. Cano reached on an infield single, stole second and scored on Dustin Ackley’s pinch hit single to left field to make it 5-2. Ackley later scored on Mike Zunino’s fourth hit of the night – a little RBI bloop single to right. Zunino’s four hits are a career high.
M’s lead 6-2
