Mariners break through vs. Clay Holmes, stun Yankees

Ty France hit a tiebreaking RBI single to cap a four-run ninth inning off Clay Holmes as the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 5-4 victory over the host New York Yankees on Monday night

The Mariners stopped New York’s seven-game winning streak by scoring four times off Holmes (1-1), who blew his second save in 15 chances and surrendered earned runs for the first time this season.

With the Mariners trailing 4-1 with two on and one out in the ninth, Luke Raley, who had two of Seattle’s three hits off starter Marcus Stroman, hit an infield single to Gleyber Torres. Julio Rodriguez scored the Mariners’ second run on Torres’ throwing error, which also allowed Cal Raleigh to advance to third and Raley to take second.

Mitch Haniger followed with an RBI single and Dominic Canzone hit a tying sacrifice fly. France followed by hitting a 2-0 sinker to right field for a 5-4 lead.

Eduard Bazardo (1-0) allowed an RBI single to Jon Berti that pushed New York’s lead to 4-1 in the eighth inning but earned the win.

Andres Munoz stranded Juan Soto at first and retired Alex Verdugo for his ninth save.

Verdugo drove in the first three runs for the Yankees. Verdugo hit a two-run double four batters in and added an RBI single in the fifth off Seattle starter Logan Gilbert.

Stroman allowed a run in 7 1/3 innings and Luke Weaver finished off the eighth before Holmes faltered. Stroman struck out six, walked one and exited to a nice ovation after allowing Canzone’s homer to end his night.

Gilbert allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings. He struck one and walked one and avoided his third straight loss thanks to Seattle’s comeback.

The Yankees went ahead when Verdugo followed Judge’s long double to center field with a two-base hit with one out down the right field line. After consecutive one-out singles by Soto and Judge, Verdugo lined a single to center for a 3-0 lead in the fifth.
