NEW YORK, May 6 (UPI) -- Darrell Rasner and four relievers combined on a four-hit shutout Sunday afternoon as the New York Yankees beat Seattle, 5-0.
Bobby Abreu drove in two runs with two hits. Hideki Matsui, Wil Nieves and Derek Jeter all drove in one run; while Matsui, Jeter and Miguel Cairo each had two hits for the Yankees -- who have won four of their last five games.
New York was buoyed by Roger Clemens' announcement at Yankee Stadium during the game that he would return to pitch for the team this season.
The pro-rated contract for the seven-time Cy Young Award winner is worth $28 million.
Jose Vidro had two of the four hits for the Mariners, who have dropped three of four.
Loser Jarrod Washburn (2-3) gave up three earned runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.
