SEATTLE (AP) — Jacoby Ellsbury lined an RBI single on a 0-2 pitch to score Derek Jeter with the go ahead run in the eighth inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 14 games — the longest for a Yankees player since Jeter’s 19-game streak in 2012 — and gave New York just its fourth win in the last 11 games. Ellsbury’s hit came after Jeter’s ground-rule double that ended the night for Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma (4-3), who had not been threatened since the first inning.

Dellin Betances (4-0) got the victory in relief of New York starter Vidal Nuno despite giving up the lead in the bottom of the seventh on Dustin Ackley’s RBI single.
