Seattle Loses 4-1 to the Yankees; 17th Straight Loss

NEW YORK (AP) _ The Seattle Mariners flailed away helplessly against CC Sabathia in their 17th straight loss, managing only one hit and striking out 18 times overall in a 4-1 loss to the New York Yankees on a rain-soaked Tuesday night.

Sabathia did not allow a baserunner until Brendan Ryan singled with one out in the seventh inning - a batter after a 30 minute rain delay - in beating Seattle for the seventh consecutive start. He struck out 14 of the 25 batters he faced, seven in a row at one point.

The Mariners are four shy of matching the Baltimore Orioles' American League-record 21-game losing streak to start the 1988 season. The 1961 Phillies dropped 23 straight for the modern major league mark.
