Yankees Offense Comes Alive Vs King Felix

The Yankees got two unlikely things in last night’s victory over the Mariners, a good start from Phil Hughes and the offense broke out against Felix Hernandez, as they won 9-3 in Seattle.

The game was tied 1-1 going into the 4th inning, that’s when the Yankees broke out to score five runs to go up 6-1. Mark Teixeira and Chris Dickerson homered that inning. Eric Chavez and Brett Gardner also picked up an RBI apiece.

The Yankees tacked on three more runs thanks to a three-run homer by Robinson Cano in the 7th.

Aside from a small blip in the 3rd inning, Hughes was very effective. He even got out of a bases loaded, one-out jam in the 6th inning which was likely the turning point of the game as the lead was still just 6-1 at the time.

Austin Romine also started behind the plate and picked up his first major league hit, a 7th inning single to right center.
