NEW YORK (AP) — Kyle Seager homered, tripled twice and doubled, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2 Monday night.

Hernandez (8-1) won his fifth straight start to match a career high. The Mariners broke open a game of odd bounces with a four-run seventh inning, and Seager hit a three-run homer in the ninth.

Robinson Cano was again relentlessly booed by Yankees fans, this time in a makeup of a game washed out April 30. In the lineup after sitting four straight with a bruised left hand, he went 1 for 3 with two walks. The former New York star drew a mocking cheer when he was caught too far off first by David Phelps (1-3).

Seattle, which won games at Yankee Stadium on April 29 and May 1, took all three games in New York for the first time since sweeping three in 2002.
