The Yankees bullpen pitched out of trouble several times tonight, but Cory Wade gave up a walkoff home run in the 12th, letting the Mariners get away with a 2-1 win in Seattle. Ivan Nova allowed one run in 7.1 innings. His only costly mistake was a wild pitch that allowed a run in the fourth. He took a no decision, largely because Dave Robertson bailed him out of a jam in the eighth. The Yankees tied the game on Nick Swisher’s solo home run in the seventh, and they missed out on scoring chances when Andruw Jones was thrown out at the plate in the third and when Jesus Montero struck out with the go-ahead run at second base in the ninth.
