After back-to-back frustrating losses, the Yankees left Seattle with a no-doubt win. CC Sabathia was his old self and every Yankees starter had at least one hit in a 7-1 series-finale win. Almost all of the damage was done in the third inning when the Yankees batted around and scored five runs on four hits, one of them a three-run double by Andruw Jones. Every run in the inning scored with two outs. Nick Swisher homered the inning before and Mark Teixeira had a RBI single the inning after. Sabathia allowed one run through eight innings, almost single-handedly matching the total innings thrown by A.J. Burnett and Ivan Nova in the first two games of this series.
