Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Robinson Cano and Lyle Overbay each drove in two runs and spurred a seventh-inning rally that lifted the New York Yankees to a 4-3 triumph over the Seattle Mariners in the opener of a three-game series.

Cano delivered a game-tying two-RBI double in the seventh and later scored the go-ahead run as part of a 2-for-3 performance. Chris Nelson also came through with a pair of hits and a run scored to help the Yankees post their seventh win in eight outings.

The comeback prevented Felix Hernandez from winning a fifth consecutive start after the star righty outdueled CC Sabathia in a clash of aces. Hernandez held New York to one run and five hits while striking out eight before exiting after six innings.

Charlie Furbush (0-2) was hung with the loss after permitting two runs and recording just one out in the seventh.

Sabathia racked up a season-best 10 strikeouts, but was reached for three runs -- two earned -- on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings. Two of those runs came on a homer by former Yankee Raul Ibanez that put Seattle up 3-0 in the sixth.

Ex-Mariner Shawn Kelley (2-0) received the victory after retiring both men he faced in relief of Sabathia, with Mariano Rivera firing a 1-2-3 ninth to notch his 16th save in as many chances this season.

Ibanez finished 2-for-4 for the Mariners, with Kyle Seager contributing an RBI double in the setback.

Curtis Granderson returned to the New York lineup from a fractured right forearm sustained in late February, but went 0-for-3 with a walk and run scored in his season debut.
