Mariners 4, Yankees 2

NEW YORK — Robinson Cano doubled and drove in two runs, Roenis Elias struck out 10 in seven innings and the Mariners beat the Yankees 4-2 Thursday night.

Michael Saunders had three hits, including an RBI double, to help the Mariners win for the fifth time in six games following an eight-game skid. Seattle won both games in a rain-shortened series that marked Cano's return to New York after signing a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners during the offseason.

The All-Star second baseman was booed again and finished the series 2-for-9 with three RBIs.

Seattle has won four straight at Yankee Stadium dating to last season.

Hiroki Kuroda gave up four runs — three earned — and seven hits in six innings, lowering his ERA slightly to 5.14. It was an improvement over his previous outing Friday, when the 39-year-old right-hander was hammered by the Angels.

Elias gave up a leadoff homer to Jacoby Ellsbury but not much else in the rookie's first appearance against the Yankees. Yoervis Media worked a perfect eighth, and former Ray Fernando Rodney got three outs for his sixth save.

Ellsbury's first home run with the Yankees was New York's first leadoff shot since Derek Jeter connected at the White Sox on Aug. 21, 2012.

    Will he? Won't he? It appears the Bucs' uncertainty over whether quarterback Jameis Winston can play through a shoulder injury Sunday at Buffalo will carry up until the final hours before kickoff.

    Jameis Winston didn't throw at practice Wednesday.
