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.
