The New York Yankees (28-20) battled from a three-run deficit and picked up a 7-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds (19-26) in 10 innings on Saturday evening at Great American Ball Park.
New York trailed 4-1 after four innings, but the offense woke up and scored three runs in the fifth to tie the game before scoring three in the tenth to secure the come-from-behind win.
Aaron Judge stayed red-hot at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a walk and three RBIs, including the go-ahead hit in extras. Anthony Rizzo also played a big role as he smacked a two-run home run, his 11th of the season, and drove in the game-tying run with a single. Isiah Kiner-Falefa drilled his second home run, while Ben Rortvedt collected a pair of hits in his Yankee debut.
Jhony Brito struggled on the mound with his control, which led to four runs on four hits over four innings while walking four. The right-hander did record six strikeouts, tying his career high.
The bullpen did an outstanding job again. Ron Marinaccio and Micahel King each fired two shutout innings, while Clay Holmes and Ryan Weber tossed scoreless frames.
The Yankees will try to complete the three-game sweep of the Reds on Sunday at 11:35 a.m. Luis Severino is expected to come off the injured list and make his season debut for New York.
