MLB: New York Yankees 2, Seattle 1

SEATTLE, June 9 (UPI) -- Chris Stewart singled home Ichiro Suzuki in the ninth inning Sunday to put the Yankees in front and New York escaped with a 2-1 decision over Seattle.

Suzuki drew a leadoff walk from Yoervis Medina (1-2) starting the ninth and went to second on a Jayson Nix sacrifice.


After Reid Brignac flew out, Stewart delivered a single to left field, chasing home the decisive run.

The late tally made a winner of David Robinson (4-1), who tossed a scoreless eighth inning after Yankees starter David Phelps had yielded just one run on three hits over six frames.

Brett Gardner went 4-for-5 with an RBI as New York took a third win in four games against the Mariners.

Seattle starter Felix Hernandez held the Yanks to one run on five hits in a seven-inning performance.

Brendan Ryan supplied the Mariners' only RBI.
