In his final start before the postseason, Luis Severino tossed seven innings of no-hit ball as the New York Yankees defeated the Texas Rangers, 3-1, on Monday night at Globe Life Field.
Severino, who was making his third start since returning from the injured list, was pulled from the game due to pitch count. The right-hander struck out seven Rangers along the way while issuing a walk.
Miguel Castro pitched the eighth and allowed two hits, and one earned run. Scott Effross worked the ninth and secured the save.
Marwin Gonzalez and Giancarlo Stanton homered. For Stanton, it was his 30th home run of the season. Kyle Higashioka also plated a run with a single. Aaron Judge, who is still chasing No. 62, went 1-for-4 with an infield single.
The two teams will play a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. Game 1 will start at 2:05 p.m.
