Quick Recap: Yankees 6, Mariners 3

broompicture Jacoby Ellsbury got the Yankees out to an early 2-0 in the first inning with a shot to almost the same spot as Teixeira's home run last night.

Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run double in the third to give the Yankees a 4-1 lead.

Derek Jeter had a nice last game in Seattle going 3-4 including a two-run single to give the Yankees a 6-1 lead.

Chase Whitley went 7 2/3 innings, gave up two runs on five hits, struck out six and didn't walk a batter.

Ellsbury also robbed Robinson Cano of a home run in the fifth inning with an amazing catch up against the left-centerfield wall - it was near the spot where Cano hit his home run against Tanaka in last night's game. He was pulled from the game after that play because he aggravated his sore right hip which started bothering him in Kansas City this past weekend.

Not to be outdone, Brett Gardner made a catch similar to Ellsbury's after he replaced Ellsbury in the game and robbed Mike Zunino of extra bases.

Oh, and Ichiro, who also came in when Ellsbury was removed from the game, made a great catch of his own in right field. The Yankee outfielders put on a show tonight. It was pretty cool to watch.

Can the Yankees stay at Safeco Field? They seem to like it there.
