SEATTLE (AP) – As Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks made their way to the line of scrimmage to miss the remaining two minutes, boos rained down on the team from the 15,758 fans in attendance at Lumen Field. Head Coach Pete Carroll loved it. After all, it was the first time fans could watch the Seahawks play in any way at Lumen Field since the end of the 2019 regular season. Seattle’s nine home games last season were played out in l absence of fans. So even some well-natured boos were a welcome event for the Seahawks.
NEW YORK (AP) – Yusei Kikuchi and the Seattle reliever box combined six hitters, Kyle Seager doubled up to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning and the Mariners avoided a four-game sweep, beating the New Yankees York 2-0. The Yankees had won five in a row. They only lost for the third time in 13 games, ending a hotly contested streak between the playoff contenders. New York rookie starter Luis Gil threw two hits for five scoreless innings, striking out eight on strikes. In his big-league debut Tuesday against Baltimore, he pitched six white innings, allowing four hits and fanning six. Kikuchi and Mariners relievers Casey Sadler, Paul Sewald and Drew Steckenrider combined to strike out 12.
