Fan falls into Yankees dugout in Seattle

A seemingly intoxicated fan fell into the Yankees dugout during their victory over the Mariners on Wednesday, landing on the dugout steps before being corralled by law enforcement.

Mark Teixeira wasn't surprised the Mariners intentionally walked Gary Sanchez twice to get to him. Teixeira pointed out he is hitting .197 and that Sanchez is hitting everything a mile. "Shoot, if Babe Ruth is hitting behind him you intentionally walk him," Teixeira said. "I mean he is as hot as any player I have played with in my entire career. You just don't see guys doing what he is doing. I don't care how old he is."

Is Felix Hernandez a Hall of Famer?

Hall of Fame voters are tough on electing starting pitchers -- and the different way starters are used today doesn't exactly clear things up. With a Cy Young and 51.8 WAR to his name, could Hernandez make the cut even though he has yet to appear in the postseason? Schoenfield: Future standards for HOF pitchers

For the second time today, the Mariners have shown rookie sensation Gary Sanchez the ultimate respect. In the ninth, Seattle chose to intentionally walk Sanchez to load the bases with no outs and the Yankees up four runs. In the seventh, Seattle intentionally walked Sanchez to put runners on first and second for Mark Teixeira. Teixeira knocked an RBI single then. In the ninth, he struck out.

Does Martin have the outfield's best arm?

Even when Leonys Martin was struggling at the plate last season with Texas, he was gunning down runners on the basepaths. His great defense came with him to Seattle, too. Does Keith Law rank him No. 1 with the arm? Best fielding/throwing tools (Insider)

How much respect has rookie Gary Sanchez gained in his first 20 games as a pro? Well, the Mariners just gave him the star treatment, as with a man on second and one out, Seattle intentionally walked Sanchez to get to Mark Teixeira. Teixeira knocked an RBI single. The Yankees lead the M's, 4-0 as Masahiro Tanaka is outpitching Hisahi Iwakuma.

With his first inning homer, rookie Gary Sanchez now has nine homers in 70 at-bats. Alex Rodriguez hit nine homers in 225 at-bats this season.

King Felix once ruled on struggling squad

Felix Hernandez won the AL Cy Young in 2010 with a league-leading 2.27 ERA, but his 13 wins were the fewest by a Cy Young-winning starter in a season. The M's finished an AL-worst 61-101 that year, the lowest winning percentage by a team with a Cy Young winner. Great players on bad teams

Seattle Pilots barely remembered beyond 'Ball Four'

The Seattle Pilots existed for one season before moving to Milwaukee and didn't leave much behind, other than a scathing book. But the Mariners might not exist without them, Jim Caple writes.

The Yankees Gary Sanchez is batting third and DHing. Manager Joe Girardi had planned on giving the rookie sensation a day off, but Sanchez is hitting too well. Mark Teixeira is starting instead of Tyler Austin.

Is James Paxton's injury a concern?

Paxton has been out for two weeks with a bruised left elbow and is set to rejoin the Mariners' rotation later this week against the White Sox. He threw back-to-back eight-inning gems before going on the DL. If he continues to perform similarly, he'll no doubt help the M's wild card cause. Crasnick: Injury concerns for contending teams
