You would think that when you miss Felix Hernandez because of a rainout you would be thrilled and get a boost? Not the Yankees. Roenis Elias did his best Hernandez imitation striking out 10 in seven innings as the Yankees fell to the Mariners 4-2.
Hiroki Kuroda rebounded a little bit from his previous bad start against the Angels, but it wasn’t enough. In the first, with one out, Stefen Romero singled and Robinson Cano followed with an RBI double. The Yanks would tie it when Jacoby Ellsbury hit his first homer as a member of the Yankees.
