The New York Yankees (6-4) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning, but the offense went silent after that, and they fell to the Cleveland Guardians (7-4), 3-2, on Monday night at Progressive Field. 

After falling behind in the seventh inning, Gleyber Torres led off the eighth with a triple but was left stranded after Aaron Judge popped out to second base, and Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton struck out. 

Stanton drove in both runs with a double off the wall in left-center field. 

Domingo Germán labored through three innings of work, throwing 87 pitches and issuing five walks, matching his career high. Despite all that, he gave up just two runs, one of which was earned. 

Colten Brewer did an excellent job out of the bullpen, tossing three scoreless frames. Ian Hamilton surrendered a run over two innings. 

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Tuesday with Gerrit Cole on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 6:10 p.m.
