Raul Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and a two-run homer Wednesday night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York, 12-2.
Ibanez’s slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.
Every Seattle starter had at least one of its season-high 16 hits and Jesus Montero was the only starter who failed to score a run in the Mariners’ best output this year.
The Mariners chased Phil Hughes after he got only two outs in the first. Trying to preserve his bullpen, Yankees manager Joe Girardi had Brett Marshall throw 108 pitches in his big league debut, then brought in Gonzalez.
Ibanez has connected three times in the first two games of his return to the ballpark in which — last year at 40 years old — he electrified crowds in late September and October with several key homers in the Yankees’ run to the AL Championship Series.
This time, the cries of ‘‘Ra-uuul!’’ were replaced by boos for Hughes (2-3) when Ibanez connected for his 11th career slam. Ibanez homered again in the fifth inning off Marshall.
Kendrys Morales, Michael Morse, and Michael Saunders each drove in a run in the highest-scoring first inning at the stadium that opened in 2009.
Padres 8, Orioles 4 — Alexi Amarista homered and doubled twice and San Diego matched its season-high with 17 hits, winning in Baltimore for a two-game sweep.
