6-0 victory over the New York Yankees in the opener of a three-game series
between division leaders at Yankee Stadium.
Ben Davis added a two-run homer and Edgar Martinez contributed a solo shot for
the AL West-leading Mariners, who have won two straight and seven of their
last eight. John Olerud chipped in three hits.
The game marked the first United States meeting between Japanese stars Ichiro
Suzuki of Seattle and New York's Hideki Matsui. Suzuki had only a bunt single
and a run scored in five at-bats, while Matsui went 1-for-4 with a single in

decision. The righthander scattered six hits, walked two and struck out four.
He has thrown 16 1/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts and has not
allowed an earned run in his last 22 frames.
