Jose Lopez hit his second career grand slam off Joba Chamberlain in the eighth inning, and Felix Hernandez went the distance in outpitching Javier Vazquez and leading the Seattle Mariners to a come-from-behind 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday night.  Held hitless into the sixth inning by Vazquez, the Mariners offense came alive against the Yankees burly reliever, and Hernandez (7-5) earned his third straight complete-game victory against New York, which had its seven-game winning streak snapped.  Seattle loaded the bases against Chamberlain (1-4) on a fielder's choice by Ichiro Suzuki, single by Chone Figgins and intentional walk to Russell Branyan.
