Mariners Vs. Yankees, Game 3 Final Score: Seattle Ruins Andy Pettitte's Return With 6-2 Victory

Andy Pettitte made his return to the majors on Sunday morning in a start for the New York Yankees. Unfortunately for the crowd at Yankee Stadium, the return was not a glorious one. Fortunately for the fans of the Seattle Mariners, the end result was a 6-2 win for the visitors.

The Mariners managed to salvage a win in the final game of the three-game series thanks to a strong start by Kevin Millwood and a pair of home runs off of Pettitte.

The game was scoreless until the top of the fourth inning, when Justin Smoak hit a two-run homer to give the Mariners the lead. The Yankees got a run back in the bottom of the frame when Millwood walked in a run. Although Millwood struggled with his control, the Yankees were unable to hit him with runners on base.

The Mariners managed another two-run homer in the top of the sixth when Casper Wells hit a shot that bounced off the right field foul pole. The Yankees picked up their second and final run of the game in the bottom of the eighth, again coming on a bases-loaded walk.

The final two M's runs came in the top of the ninth, on a Wells two-out infield single combined with a throwing error that allowed Alex Liddi and Brendan Ryan to score.

Millwood gets his first win of the season by going seven innings. He allowed one run on three hits and four walks, while striking out six. Pettitte allowed four runs in 6.1 innings, on seven hits and three walks.

Mariners Vs. Yankess, Game 2 Final Score: Mike Carp Can Only Do So Much In 6-2 Loss

The Seattle Mariners were hoping they could generate some offense on Saturday as they faced off against Phil Hughes, who has been the weak link in the rotation of the New York Yankees. In the end, a former teammate delivered the big blows and the M's bats were largely silent in a 6-2 loss.

Seattle starter Hector Noesi once again fell victim to the big inning, as he gave up four runs in the bottom of the second on RBI doubles by Raul Ibanez and Russell Martin and a home run by Jayson Nix.

Ibanez would add a home run in the bottom of the fourth inning to make it 5-0 Yankees. Mike Carp finally got Seattle on the board in the top of the seventh with his second home run of the season, but a Robinson Cano RBI single in the eighth got that run back for the Yankees.

Carp appears to hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth, but a review of the play overturned the call and the result was instead an RBI double that scored Kyle Seager. Justin Smoak and Michael Saunders would strike out to end the game.

The Mariners will attempt to salvage a win in the final game of the series on Sunday, as they go up against the returning Andy Pettitte.

Mariners Vs. Yankees, Game 1 Final Score: New York Plays Long Ball, Wins 6-2

For a brief moment on Friday, the Seattle Mariners had a lead against the New York Yankees and were looking strong behind their ace Felix Hernandez. That all ended in the blink of an eye and the M's ended up suffering a 6-2 loss to start the series and their road trip.

The Mariners once again got on the board in the top of the first but couldn't muster much offense after that. Dustin Ackley led off the game with his second home run of the year. The Yankees would tie things up 1-1 in the bottom of the inning, however, on a Robinson Cano sacrifice fly.

The score would remain 1-1 until the top of the sixth, as both teams stranded their share of runners. The Mariners went ahead 2-1 when Jesus Montero lef off the inning with another solo shot. The lead was short-lived, as Raul Ibanez hit a three-run homer off of Hernandez with two outs to put the Yankees up 4-2.

Hernandez came out of the game after 6.2 innings, giving up four runs on 11 hits and two walks.

The Yankees would add their final runs on another homer, this time by a pinch-hitting Andruw Jones in the bottom of the eighth. Apart from a Justin Smoak infield single, the M's went quietly in the ninth and that was that. The Mariners ended up stranding 16 baserunners in the game.

The Mariners will attempt to muster more offense on Saturday, as they face Phil Hughes.
