Victims of a game without points or hits from Houston Astros pitchers the day before, the Yankees were not played twice in a row, they who triumphed 6 to 3 against the Texas training, Sunday in New York.
And yet, the Yankees were in very bad shape after six innings, they who still had not hit a ball in a safe place. Giancarlo Stanton, the second batter in the seventh inning, ended the bad streak by kicking Jose Urquidy's offering out of bounds, closing the lead to 3 to 1.
DJ LeMahieu then forced the extra innings, also with a long ball, this time for two runs.
It was with another homer that the crowd favorites put an end to the game, in the 10th inning. Aaron Judge then took advantage of the presence of two teammates on the trails to close the game.
Reliever Seth Martinez (0-1), victim of Judge's blow, saw the loss s add to their file. For his part, Michael King (5-1), who came in relief in the 10th inning, added a victory to his record.
Nick Fortes settles Mets case
In Miami, Marlins wide receiver Nick Fortes ended his team's game against the New York Mets by sending off a ball out of bounds in the ninth inning.
The visitors had already recorded two of the necessary three outs and were trying to force the extra innings. Fortes, however, left no room for debate, solidly hitting the offering of pitcher Adam Ottavino (2-2), who came in relief for the ninth inning.
Miguel Rojas, with the help of solo homer, and Garrett Cooper, with a sacrifice fly, produced the other winners' runs, at the expense of Mets starting pitcher David Peterson.
Tanner Scott (3-2), also came in relief in the ninth inning, secured the victory for the Marlins.
The Red Sox complete the sweep
In Cleveland, the Red Sox of Boston didn't have too much trouble passing the broom against the Guardians, who they defeated 8-3 in the last game of the series.
In addition to benefiting from a comfortable lead, the visitors' starting pitcher, Rich Hill (4-4), muzzled the opposing hitters, he who passed five opponents in the mitt. He was eventually retired after six innings, allowing just one run on five hits and four walks.
Offensively, Trevor Story and J.D. Martinez drove in two runs apiece in the win.
