Jayson Nix cleared the bases with a three-run double in the eighth inning to put the Yankees ahead for good in a 5-2 win over the Mariners in the rubber game of the three game series.

Ivan Nova didn’t factor in the decision after six innings of two-run ball.

Instead David Phelps (2-3) earned the win in relief with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless ball, helping the Yankees end their road trip by taking 2 of 3 in Seattle after suffering a four game sweep at the hands of the A’s.

Rafeal Soriano earned his 26th save.

Derek Jeter hit second in the lineup behind Ichiro Suzuki and clubbed a first inning homer, his eighth of the season.

New York has Thursday off before opening a series with rival Red Sox on Friday night in the Bronx.
