Yankee Stadium, New York, New York
NEW YORK -- In the Bronx, almost nothing seems to faze Cliff Lee.The Mariners ace beat the New York Yankees in their ballpark yet again, pitching his third straight complete game to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 7-4 victory Tuesday night.
• Cliff Lee became the first Mariner to throw three straight complete games since Randy Johnson in 1998. Johnson was traded later that year.
• Lee has won all three of those games and is now 7-3 on the season and 5-4 in his career against the Yankees.
• Every Mariner in the starting lineup had at least one hit.
• The seven runs allowed by New York starter Phil Hughes was a season high and one shy of his career high.
• Hughes has allowed 36 runs on the season, and 18 of them have come in his last four starts.
John Isner, who played a marathon match at Wimbledon that lasted 11 hours, 5 minutes over three days before he finally beat Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set last week, threw out the first pitch. ... The Mariners activated C Josh Bard from the disabled list. ... Umpire Joe West, who criticized the Yankees and Red Sox for making games take too long earlier this season, worked the plate in a game that took 2 hours, 30 minutes. ... It was Swisher's first multihomer game since Sept. 8. ... Yankees OF Brett Gardner was out with a bruised wrist, though available to run or play defense. He expects to try swinging a bat Wednesday. ... Lee went the distance against the Cubs and Reds in his previous two starts.
