Yankees Vs. Mariners Final Score: Andy Pettitte Gives Up Two Homers In 6-2 Loss

Andy Pettitte was pretty good in his first start for the New York Yankees since 2010, but not good enough to earn a victory Sunday against the Seattle Mariners.

Pettitte surrendered four runs in 6.1 innings as the Yankees lost to the Mariners, 6-2, at Yankee Stadium. Despite the loss, the Yankees still won the series, 2-1.

Pettitte only struck out two batters and walked three during his first MLB outing in more a year. Pettitte, 39, retired after the 2010 season, but decided to make a comeback this spring.

Both of the Yankees' runs came on walks, one in the fifth inning, one in the eighth inning. Kevin Millwood went seven innings in the win for Seattle. He walked four batters and struck out six. After the Yankees cut the Mariners' lead in half in the eighth inning, an infield single and a throwing error gave Seattle two insurance runs in the ninth.

The Yankees left six runners on base and were 0-5 with runners in scoring position on Sunday. The Mariners also left six men on base but were 3-9 with runners in scoring position.

The Yankees' next series begins on Monday against the Orioles in Baltimore at 7:05 p.m.

Yankees (19-14) Vs. Mariners (15-20): Andy Pettitte Makes Return As New York Looks For Sweep Of Seattle

Andy Pettitte has pitched in a lot of big games for the New York Yankees. On Sunday, however, things will be a bit different when the lefty takes the mound at Yankee Stadium for the first time in almost two years. Pettitte, who will officially complete his comeback from a one-year hiatus, will oppose the Seattle Mariners' veteran Kevin Milllwood beginning at 1:05 p.m. ET on YES Network.

Pettitte will try and help the Yankees earn a three-game sweep of the visiting Mariners, who will also try and help Millwood (0-4, 5.88 ERA) earn his first victory of the season.

On Saturday, New York used a stellar starting effort by Phil Hughes to earn its fifth victory in six games. Outfielder/designated hitter Raul Ibanez has smashed two home runs and collected five RBI in the two victories over the Mariners.

Yankees Vs. Mariners Final Score: New York Defeats Seattle 6-2 On Phil Hughes Outstanding Pitching Performance

The New York Yankees defeated the Seattle Mariners by a score of 6-2 on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. The win brings the Yankees to 19-14, still trailing the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles in the American League East.

Phil Hughes (3-4) pitched a gem for the Yankees, going 7.2 innings and scattering six hits. Hughes struck out four and walked only one batter on the day, lowering his ERA to 5.50. Saturday was the 25-year-old’s longest outing of the season and builds upon his previous best last week where he surrendered three earned runs in 6.2 innings.

Yankees beat writer Erik Boland was excited about Hughes performance:

Boone Logan pitched 1.1 innings to get his first save of the season for New York.

Former Yankee Hector Noesi (2-4) took the loss for Seattle. Noesi was facing his old team for the first time since being traded in the offseason to Seattle. He didn’t fare well, allowing five extra base hits, including Raul Ibanez’s seventh home run of the season.

The Yankees will go for the sweep against Seattle on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. in Yankee Stadium.

Yankees Vs. Mariners Final Score: Yankees Get To Felix Hernandez, Win 6-2

The New York Yankees rode a four-hit performance by Robinson Cano and a three-run homer by Raul Ibanez to defeat the Seattle Mariners 6-2 on Friday night.
