Mariners rout Yankees on Wednesday night


In an effort to keep Yusei Kikuchi healthy, the Mariners may have unlocked the keys to a dominant new left-hander in their rotation.

For the second straight game since pitching an abbreviated one-inning outing to limit his workload this first season in the Majors, Kikuchi looked outstanding. The 27-year-old rookie threw 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball with just three hits allowed in Seattle’s 10-1 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday night.
