The New York Yankees (16-15) snapped a four-game skid with a 4-2 come-from-behind victory over the Cleveland Guardians (14-16) at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.

New York fell behind 2-0 in the third inning but tied the game in the sixth on Anthony Volpe’s third home run of the season, and Anthony Rizzo’s two-out RBI single. 

Willie Calhoun drilled a solo shot in the seventh, his first as a Yankee, to put the Yankees on top. DJ LeMahieu provided a huge insurance run in the eighth with a two-out RBI single. 

Gerrit Cole fired six innings of two-run ball while striking out eight. New York is now 7-0 when he starts. 

Ron Marinaccio, Wandy Peralta, and Michael King combined to get the final nine outs. King recorded the final five outs to secure his second save of the season.

The Yankees will try to win the series on Wednesday with Clarke Schmidt on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
