Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Michael Morse clubbed a solo homer to help lift
the Seattle Mariners to a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees in the rubber
match of a three-game set.
Dustin Ackley and Brendan Ryan knocked in the other runs for the Mariners,
who, after dropping the opener, won the final two games to claim their first
series against the Yankees in New York since June 29-July 1, 2010.
Former Yankee Hector Noesi made a spot start for Seattle, replacing Aaron
Harang after he was scratched with lower back stiffness. Noesi allowed an
unearned run on three hits in 4 1/3 innings.
Curtis Granderson finished 3-for-4 and scored a run for New York, which saw
Andy Pettitte (4-3) depart after 4 2/3 innings due to a tight left trapezius
muscle. The veteran left-hander, making his 499th career start, gave up two
runs on four hits, walked three and struck out five.
