Hernandez Improves to 8-1 in 10-2 Drubbing of Yankees

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kyle Seager had four extra base hits while Felix Hernandez struck out eight in seven innings, pacing the Seattle Mariners to a 10-2 win over the New York Yankees. Hernandez improves to 8-1 on the season and won his fifth straight start.

Seager had two triples, a double, and a home run as part of his three RBI night. It was the first time since Montreal's Hal Breeden in 1973 that a player had two triples, at least one homer and a double in a single game.

His second triple occurred when a fly ball down the line in left was bobbled by Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner, then kicked around by Derek Jeter. Seager kept running as Jeter thought the ball was foul, helping aid in the feat.

Hernandez's only blemish came in the fourth inning when he kicked his foot out and deflected an Ichiro Suzuki single, scoring two runs. Aside from that, King Felix was dominant. The righty has not lost in nine starts and holds a record of 5-1 at the new Yankee Stadium.

New York (29-27) has now dropped four of their last six games while Seattle (29-28) has won three straight.
