The Yankees remain in the first place. But they haven’t been looking like it recently.

The Yankees failed to hit or run the bases like the Keystone Kops once more in their 1-0, 13-inning loss to the Mariners on Tuesday, their 6th loss in 7 games.

In the bottom of the 13th, Jonathan Loaisiga gave up a walk-off single to Luis Torrens with the bases loaded and one out, automatic runner Eduardo Suarez scoring.

In the top of the 13th inning, with one out Yankees also had the bases loaded, but Miguel Andujar grounded out and Gleyber Torres struck out, with runners in scoring position leaving them 0-for-10.

In the 10th inning, Andrew Benintendi took off too quickly to steal third. He was thrown out between 2nd and 3rd base after being caught in a rundown, preventing the Yankees from scoring.

Aaron Hicks led off the 11th inning with a liner to second. Andujar broke toward 3rd this time and was doubled off second.

Jose Trevino was caught off second base on an Isiah Kiner-Falefa comebacker in the 12th, Kiner-Falefa was thrown out attempting to advance to second base for an ugly double play.

Cole struck out the first 7 batters he faced on Tuesday, aided by diving catches by Aaron Judge in right field and Andrew Benintendi in left.

The Yankees, on the other hand, had no luck against Castillo.

With two outs in the first, Benintendi singled and stole second, but he was stranded when Josh Donaldson struck out.

Judge led off the fourth inning with a single before Donaldson hit an inning-ending double play.

In the fifth inning, Cole allowed a one-out double to Raleigh that deflected off the glove of DJ LeMahieu. Cole responded by getting Haggerty to fly to right and J.P. Crawford to pop out, Seattle’s first runner in scoring position of the game.

Jose Trevino followed with a slow chopper to third, but both runners advanced.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa grounded to second to keep the game scoreless after being outmatched by Castillo in his first two at-bats.

The Yankees were the first to falter, falling into a tie with Houston for the best record in the American League.
