Yankees snap skid with extra-inning victory over Reds

The New York Yankees snapped a three-game skid with a 7-6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in 10 innings on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Luis Severino started on the mound for New York and surrendered four runs over two innings before leaving the game with right shoulder tightness. The right-hander will undergo an MRI tomorrow.

JP Sears was the first one out of the bullpen, and he allowed a pair of runs over 3 2/3 innings. Albert Abreu (1.0 IP), Wandy Peralta (0.1 IP), Aroldis Chapman (1.0 IP), Clay Holmes (1.0 IP), and Michael King (1.0 IP) had scoreless outings.

The Reds jumped up to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on Joey Votto’s run-scoring groundout.

Cincinnati added to their lead in the top of the second. Kyle Farmer, Mike Moustakas, and Stuart Fairchild went back-to-back-to-back off Severino to make it 4-0.

The Yankees put up a five-spot on the board in the bottom of the third to take the lead. Anthony Rizzo grounded one past the second baseman to put the team on the board. The play was scored as a fielder’s choice, and Rizzo collected his 57th RBI of the season. One batter later, Gleyber Torres dunked one into shallow left for a two-out RBI single to cut the Reds’ lead in half. Later in the inning, Isiah Kiner-Falefa hammered one into the gap in left-center for a bases-clearing double to give New York a 5-4 lead.

However, Cincinnati regained the lead in the top of the fifth. Joey Votto tied the game with a ground-rule double. Then, Tyler Stephenson followed that with a sacrifice fly to center field to give the Reds a 6-5 lead.

In the bottom of the eighth, Giancarlo Stanton launched his 23rd home run of the season just over the right-field wall to tie the game, 6-6. That ended up sending the game to extra innings.

After King held the Reds off the board in the top of the 10th, DJ LeMahieu scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the frame to give the Yankees their MLB-leading 11th walk-off win of the season.

Nestor Cortes will get the ball on Thursday night as the Yankees will try to take two of three from the Reds. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
