The Yankees ace continued his dominance against the M's, notching his sixth consecutive win over Seattle and improving to 8-1 in his last nine starts at Safeco Field.

New York struck for five runs in the third. After Robinson Cano made it 2-0 with an RBI single, Jones lashed a bases-loaded double into the right-field corner to break the game open.

Jason Vargas (3-3) was saddled with the loss, surrendering six runs on five hits in just three innings as the Mariners went down for only the third time in 13 games.

Justin Smoak homered to provide the M's offense.
