SEATTLE ( Associated Press) — Pinch-hitter Luis Torrance struck one out in the 13th inning to score Eugenio Suarez, and the Seattle Mariners beat the New York Yankees 1-0 on Tuesday night in a game dominated by Gerrit Cole’s opening pitching. defeated by Luis Castillo.
Both aces were dominating in the late innings before turning into bullpen, which managed to keep the game on the night without a score.
Some poor baserunning by the Yankees was helped, as was a lack of execution by the Mariners as both teams had a run at the end in extra frames.
It was the first major league game since Tampa Bay against Detroit on August 17, 2019, reaching a no-score in the 13th inning – second base to start each additional inning before the new rules went into effect in 2020. But an automatic runner was kept.
Eventually, the Mariners arrived in the 13th. Cal Raleigh singled out Jonathan Loisiga (1-3) and pushed Suarez from second to third. A later, Sam Haggerty went to deliberately load the bases and Torrence pitched 0-2 pitch right field to start a wild, exhausted celebration.
A lack of runs put Castillo and Cole out of decision that night when both deserved the win.
Cole smashed four hits and scored eight runs in seven innings – a big change when he last faced the Mariners after scoring six in the first innings less than a week ago.
Castillo allowed three hits and scored seven runs in eight innings.
Matt Brash (3-3) bowled two innings of relief to win. Seattle’s bullpen combined for five hitless innings with seven strikeouts.
Poor baserunning caused the Yankees to miss several chances in extra innings. Andrew Benintendi was selected in 10th in an attempt to finish third without an outsider. Aaron Hicks began a double play in 11th place, as Miguel Andór went too far from second.
In the 12th, Brash made a brilliant, blind, backhand grab of Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s grounder and caught Jose Trevino in a rundown between second and third. Kinner-Falefa was thrown out in an attempt to advance to second on the play.
Seattle missed opportunities to finish it in 11th and 12th, thanks to Torrance in the end.
Castillo bested Cole by finishing in eighth place and getting out of trouble in the process. Castillo got ground to end the innings with a runner-up from Kiner-Falefa in third.
Castillo was the first Seattle pitcher to throw eight innings this season. It was his third debut against the Yankees last month. In a combined three innings, Castillo threw 21 2/3 innings, scored four earned runs and scored 23 runs.
