The Seattle Mariners will return to Safeco Field on Friday with a fresh one-game winning streak.

OK, one game doesn't really qualify as a streak, but maybe we can just bend the rules for a team that is coming off a 17-game losing streak (and 17 certainly counts as a streak). The Mariners snapped their streak on Wednesday with a 9-2 victory over the Yankees in New York.

Felix Hernandez allowed just five hits and one run over seven innings, while the Mariners exploded for five runs in the seventh thanks to an error by Robinson Cano that allowed Ichiro Suzuki to score.

Ichiro went 4 for 5 with two runs, while Mike Carp and Dustin Ackley combined to drive in seven of the nine runs. Carp had a three-run double with two outs in the seventh inning that bounced off Curtis Granderson's glove as he appeared to lose the ball in the sun.

Seattle also had, coincidently, 17 hits on the day.

The 17-game losing streak was the longest in baseball since 2005 and spanned 22 days thanks to the All-Star break. Kansas City lost 19 games in a row in 2005.

It had to happen sooner or later but I just it wasn't my Yankees. Oh, well, c'est la vie. And in a bit of irony, probably the "best" game that Hughes pitched since he came back from the DL.

Mariners break 17-game losing streak

Noooooooooo!  My Yankees!! How could those bums lose to the Mariners?  First Mike Mussina loses a perfect game after 26 outs against the Red Sox in 2001.  Second, game Seven of the 2011 WS, Mo Rivera blows the save with a one run lead in the ninth inning?  Third,  we blow a three games to none ALCS lead with a one run lead in the ninth inning of Game Four in 2004.  Now we lose to the 2011 Seattle Mariners?  The Yankees are cursed!  When does the doom end?
