SEATTLE (AP) — Mike Zunino and Kyle Seager each hit a three-run homer and Nelson Cruz added a solo shot as the Seattle Mariners rallied to beat the New York Yankees 7-5 Monday night.

The Yankees got two homers apiece from rookie catcher Gary Sanchez and Starlin Castro, but three of them were solo shots.

New York took a 5-3 lead in the sixth inning on a two-run shot by Sanchez, his eighth homer of the season and sixth in the last seven games, and Castro’s second solo homer, his 17th.

Zunino, recalled from from Triple-A Tacoma on July 20, answered in the bottom half with his ninth home run — off Anthony Swarzak (1-2) — to put Seattle ahead 6-5. Cruz added a solo homer, his 32nd, in the eighth.

Nick Vincent (3-3) retired all three batters he faced, and rookie Edwin Diaz survived a shaky ninth for his 10th save in 10 chances.
