Yankees cruise to win over Mariners
The New York Yankees took an early lead and cruised to a 7-3 home win over the Seattle Mariners in MLB on Monday.
New York jumped in front in the first inning when DJ LeMahieu doubled and Luke Voit followed with a two-run homer off Seattle starter Felix Hernandez. It was his 10th home run of the season.
The Yankees then tacked on four more runs in the second inning and another one in the third to pull away.
Carlos Santana and Dee Gordon homered for Seattle in the fourth and fifth, respectively, but it was too little too late.
Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and third baseman Gio Urshela combined for four hits, three runs scored and two RBIs in the win. Shortstop Thairo Estrada also drove in two runs.
