Chase Whitley went 7 2/3 innings, gave up two runs on five hits, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter.
Ellsbury also robbed Robinson Cano of a home run in the fifth inning with an amazing catch up against the left-centerfield wall – it was near the spot where Cano hit his home run against Tanaka in last night’s game. He was pulled from the game after that play because he aggravated his sore right hip which started bothering him in Kansas City this past weekend.
Can the Yankees stay at Safeco Field? They seem to like it there.
