The New York Yankees used the long ball to defeat the Tampa Bay Rays, 10-4, on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. With the victory, New York won the series by taking two of three.
The Yankees scored all their runs in the first two innings, thanks to four home runs. Gleyber Torres homered twice, Giancarlo Stanton went deep for the second-straight game, and Oswaldo Cabrera crushed his first Major League home run. Aaron Judge also picked up his 121st RBI with a sacrifice fly.
Domingo Germán started the game on short rest and tossed one scoreless inning before manager Aaron Boone turned it over to the bullpen. New York used seven relief pitchers to get the final 24 outs. Lucas Luetge, Lou Trivino, Ron Marinaccio, and Clay Holmes each allowed a run.
The Yankees will get the day off on Monday before they begin a quick two-game set with the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
