The Yankees combined to reach base just four times against Hernandez, as Ichiro Suzuki singled, Robinson Cano doubled, and Curtis Granderson and Raul Ibanez each walked once. The team was 0-1 with runners in scoring position and left three runners on base.
New York's pitching staff was able to keep the Yankees in the game by holding Seattle to one run, but the Yankees offense could not get on the scoreboard.
Boone Logan retired the only two batters he faced to finish the seventh inning after Kuroda was pulled from the game. David Robertson then came on for the eighth to pitch a perfect inning. He would start the ninth as well, getting the first batter of the inning out. Lefty-specialist Clay Rapada finished the ninth inning, allowing one hit and getting the final two outs.
New York and Seattle will play the final game of the three game series on Sunday at 1:05 PM ET.
