Yankees beat Mariners, Felix, tighten grip on first place

Robinson Cano hit a three-run double, Mark Teixeira and Chris Dickerson homered and the New York Yankees rolled past Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners 9-3 Monday night.

New York increased its AL East lead to a season-high four games over the idle Boston Red Sox.

With the one-sided victory, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera didn't need to leave the bullpen for a chance at his 600th save.

The Yankees did most of their damage against Hernandez (14-12), last year's AL Cy Young Award winner.
