The Yanks dropped two out of three to the AL West Cellar Dwellers and enter a crucial series against the Angels 10 games back in the East.

Things looked hopeful for the Bombers, who launched two home runs off the bats of Derek Jeter and Xavier Nady in the first two innings. Yankee offense promptly shut down, failing to score for the rest of the day.

Seattle's Jose Lopez hit two home runs as the Mariners cruised to a 5-2 victory.
