The main story of the afternoon was the duel between CC Sabathia and Felix Hernandez. However, the Yankees were able to get to the Mariners bullpen to edge them out in a  2-1 victory at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees first scored in the sixth inning on a RBI single by Carlos Beltran. Mark Teixeira was the game decider in the eighth inning, hitting his 23rd home run of the season off Fernando Rodney.

CC Sabathia gave up a run on six hits while striking out seven in six innings of work. Justin Wilson pitched a scoreless seventh, Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth and Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless ninth.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees are off tomorrow, but they’ll return to the stadium on Tuesday as they’ll take on their AL East rivals the Baltimore Orioles. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on WPIX 11.
