Felix Hernandez was long gone by the time this one was decided. Tonight’s game turned into a battle of the bullpens, and it was decided by the Yankees’ best. Mariano Rivera gave up a bloop, bases-loaded single in the 12th inning, giving the Mariners a 5-4 win. Yankees starter Ivan Nova lasted just 3.2 innings, and Hernandez coughed up the lead in the seventh. Hector Noesi, Dave Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Boone Logan and Luis Ayala kept the tie intact before Adam Kennedy won it off the Yankees closer.
