The New York Yankees (31-23) snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 walk-off victory over the San Diego Padres (24-28) in 10 innings on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. 

New York trailed 2-1 going into the bottom of the seventh inning when DJ LeMahieu lined a game-tying home run into the right field seats, which eventually sent the game to extra innings.

After Clay Holmes fired a scoreless top of the tenth, Isiah Kiner-Falefa ripped a walk-off single down the left-field line to give the Yankees a much-needed win. 

Luis Severino made his second start of the season and looked really sharp, allowing two runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 innings while striking out five. 

The Yankees will try to pick up a series victory on Sunday at 1:35 p.m. Gerrit Cole will take the ball for New York.
