Severino, Gardner lead Yankees to 4-1 win over Mariners

Aaron Judge apparently broke Statcast with an insane home run that nearly left Safeco Field

Felix Hernandez gave Seattle a strong pitching game, but he made one mistake - a homer by Brett Gardner - and defense failed the home team, and the New York Yankees went on to beat the Mariners 4-1 Thursday in the first game in the four-game series at Safeco Field. NY notched a 4-1 victory in the opener to improve to 4-4 on its trek, as well as maintain its one-game lead over Minnesota for the wild-card spot.

Former Yankee Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 to emerge from a 1-for-18 funk but made a costly throwing error in the ninth inning that gave NY two unearned runs.

Yankees rookie left fielder Clint Frazier, who was called up July 1, was awed by Judge's power. The ball ricocheted to second baseman Starlin Castro, who threw back to Headley for what could have been an inning-ending out. Overall, he has no-decisions in his last two starts while giving up 11 runs in 10 2/3 innings.

An estimate from the Mariners had the Aaron Judge homer at 440 feet.

I don't want to alarm anyone, but the Yankees have won two straight games and are 5-4 since the All-Star break.


The Yankees took the lead in the third.

The Mariners have eight games remaining in their current 10-game homestand: two more against the Yankees, then three against AL East-leading Boston and three against the New York Mets.

Seager led off the sixth with a walk, but Mitch Haniger struck out, Jarrod Dyson popped up and Ben Gamel flied out.

CC Sabathia, celebrating his 37th birthday, overcame some control issues early to pitch five solid innings in which he allowed one run and four hits, improving to 9-3 with a 3.44 ERA. The Mariners are 2-11 over their past 13 home games after starting the season 25-12 at home.

Yankees: Masahiro Tanaka (7-9) has won two of his last four starts after a miserable stretch with six losses in eight outings.
