First inning

Robinson Cano was greeted with boos in his first at-bat of the game and he kept them booing by doubling to right field and scoring Stefen Romero, who singled, from first to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead.

Jacoby Ellsbury tied the game quickly, leading off the bottom of the first with a solo homer to right field. Roenis Elias came back to strike out Jeter, Beltran and Soriano to end the inning. That’s a decent reaction to the homer.

Second inning

M’s get a one-out single from Ackley, but a strike out, throw out double play ends the inning

Elias gave up a single to Teixeira and then erased the runner with the good ol’ 6-5-3 (yes, that’s correct) double play into the shift from Brian McCann. Elias gave up a single to Solarte and a walk to Gardner before getting Roberts to ground into a force play.

Third inning

M’s get another run as Miller reaches on an error and Saunders singles. With runners on the corners, Romero struck out, but Cano scored Miller on a fielder’s choice up the middle.

Elias gave up a one out single to Jeter, but a ground ball to Seager from Beltran resulted in a 5-4-3 double play.

Fourth inning

Mariners tack on two more runs. Brad Miller does a nice job with two strikes, looping a single to left to score Seager from second. Saunders hammered a double to the gap in left center, unfortunately it hopped over the wall, costing the Mariners a run.

Elias gave up one-out balk to Teixeira,b ut got McCann to fly out and struck out Solarte to end the inning.

Fifth inning

Elias strikes out the side and is up to a career high eight strikeouts. He’s at 74 pitches. Joe Beimel got up briefly and was playing catch but quickly sat back down, not sure what that was about.

Sixth inning

M’s go down 1-2-3

Yankees get back a run. With two outs, Joe Girardi’s chirping from the dugout forced Bill Miller to step away to address it. That little pause while Miller and Girardi jawed back and forth seemed to take Elias out of his rhythm. He gave up a two-out single to Soriano. He should have been out of the inning. But for some reason, Brad Miller didn’t cover second on a slow roller up the middle. Miller must have assumed that Cano was going to either tag the runner or throw to first. Cano chose to flip to second, but Brad Miller was nowhere near the bag. It went as an error on Cano. Brian McCann made it hurt by single to left field to score Soriano. Elias got out of the inning, getting Solarte to ground into a force out.
