Mariners get swept by Yankees after 4-3 loss

Mariners get swept for the first time this season Mariners get swept for the first time this season

The Seattle Mariners dropped their fourth straight game on Thursday morning, after they lost to the New York Yankees, 4-2. This was the first time this season the Mariners have been swept, as they lost these three games by a combined score of 18-10.

The Yankees opened up the scoring in the first inning on two two-run home runs by both Aaron Judge and Miguel Andujar. However, the Mariners would respond in the second inning with a two-run homer by Kyle Seager, his 13th homer on the season, and would cut the Yankees' lead to two runs. Seattle would score one more run in the sixth inning, but would ultimately fall short.

Starter James Paxton had a rough first inning, giving up four earned runs, but would only give up three hits after that. With this loss, Paxton moves to 6-2 on the season, with his only other loss coming on March 31 against the Cleveland Indians.

Seattle is nearly done with their brutal 10-game stretch, but will have one more three-game series against the Boston Red Sox on Friday at 4:10 p.m. Boston is currently tied for the second-best record in the MLB at 50-26, the best record belongs to the Yankees.

Despite the loss, the Mariners still remain only 3.5 games back of the Houston Astros in the AL West and currently have a 6.5 game lead over the Los Angeles Angels for the second American League Wild Card spot.
