NEW YORK, May 7 (UPI) -- Adrian Beltre hit a game-winning home run in the ninth inning Monday to give the Seattle Mariners a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

With the score tied and two outs in the ninth, Beltre sent a fastball over the left-center field fence on the first pitch from Mariano Rivera (1-3).

The Yankees got the tying run to second in the bottom of the ninth, but Bobby Abreu was called out on strikes for J.J. Putz's seventh save of the season.

Veteran Miguel Batista allowed two runs on nine hits, with three walks in 6 1/3 innings for Seattle. Winner George Sherrill (1-0) walked one and struck out two in the eighth.

New York Manager Joe Torre and pitcher Scott Proctor were not in uniform after being suspended.
