The Mariners losing streak was going to end eventually, but the Yankees were hoping it would last just one more day. Behind another strong start by Felix Hernandez, the Mariners finally beat the Yankees 9-2 this afternoon, ending their losing streak at 17 games. Phil Hughes took the loss, allowing just two runs but also giving up nine hits to the worst-hitting team in baseball. The bullpen — and the Yankees sloppy defense — let things get out of hand during a five-run seventh and a two-run ninth.
