NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and CC Sabathia won his sixth straight start, leading the New York Yankees past the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Thursday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Robinson Cano added a solo shot for the Yankees, shut down by Seattle co-aces Cliff Lee and Felix Hernandez the previous two nights.

Lee and Hernandez each went the distance, marking the first time two visiting pitchers had consecutive complete-game wins at Yankee Stadium since May 1991, when Mark Langston and Jim Abbott did it for the California Angels.
