Cano Leads Mariners Past His Former team
Robinson Cano doubled and drove in two runs, Roenis Elias struck out 10 in seven impressive innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the New York 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.
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.
The Mariners take on the Astros in Houston tonight with Felix Hernandez on the mound for Seattle.
