NEW YORK (AP) — J.A. Happ and four relievers combined on a two-hitter, Cameron Maybin contributed with his bat and glove, and the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 Thursday night.

The Yankees won for the fourth time in five games and headed to Tampa Bay to play the AL East-leading Rays for the first time this year.

Domingo Santana homered with two outs in the ninth for Seattle, which has dropped nine of 11. The Mariners also lost second baseman Dee Gordon, who exited early after being hit around the right wrist by Happ’s pitch.

Mariners slugger Edwin Encarnacion shifted from first base to second in the eighth. Playing the position for the first time in his career, Encarnacion hurt his glove wrist diving for DJ LeMahieu’s leadoff grounder — checked by a trainer, he stayed in the game.

Maybin flared a two-out RBI double in the second and made a sliding catch on Ryon Healy’s fly to right to begin the seventh.

Gio Urshela added a two-run single in the eighth, an inning after entering for defense.

Happ (2-3) gave up just one hit, a single by Tom Murphy in the fifth, and struck out seven.
