Mariners 10, Yankees 2

NEW YORK — Kyle Seager homered, tripled twice and doubled, leading Felix Hernandez and the Mariners past the Yankees 10-2 Monday night.

Hernandez won his fifth straight start to match a career high. Seattle broke open a game of odd bounces with a four-run seventh inning, and Seager hit a three-run homer in the ninth.

Seattle, which won at Yankee Stadium on April 29 and May 1, took all three games in New York for the first time since sweeping three in 2002. The Mariners have won three straight overall.

Seager became the first major-leaguer to hit two triples and at least one homer and one double since Hal Breeden for the Expos in 1973, STATS said. The last AL player to do it was Hoot Evers for Detroit in 1950.

One of Seager's triples was the result of a mental mistake by Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.

Seager hit a blooper down the line that bounced off the glove of sliding leftfielder Brett Gardner. Jeter was also giving chase but couldn't make the catch off the deflection.

With his back to third-base umpire Brian Gorman, Jeter did not see the fair signal, corralled the ball in foul territory and continued to jog several steps toward the corner. He looked surprised when he turned, and his throw to third was too late.
