Sept. 15, 2011 at 1:47 AM

SEATTLE, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Luis Rodriguez led off the bottom of the 12th with a home run Wednesday to give the Seattle Mariners a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees.

The Mariners scored first when Mike Carp came in on a two-out wild pitch by Ivan Nova. The Yankees tied it with Nick Swisher's solo home run with two out in the seventh -- his 23rd homer of the year.

Nova went 7 1/3 inning for the Yankees, allowing one run on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts. The New York bullpen kept the Mariners scoreless until Cory Wade (5-1) served up the game-winning home run to Rodriguez.

Seattle starter Jason Vargas allowed one run on three hits, with one walk and six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings.

Steve Delabar (1-0) got the win in relief for the Mariners, who broke a four-game losing streak.

The Yankees maintained a four-game lead over second-place the Red Sox in the American League East. Boston lost to Toronto Wednesday.
