The New York Yankees (33-23) set a new season-high in hits with 18 and picked up a 10-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners (28-26) in the series opener on Monday night at T-Mobile Park. 

Aaron Judge led the offense with his 31st multi-homer game and is now tied for second in Major League Baseball with 17 home runs. Jake Bauers collected three hits, including an RBI double and his third homer. Willie Calhoun and Isiah Kiner-Falefa each had two-run doubles, while Kyle Higashioka plated a run with a single.

Domingo Germán returned from his 10-game suspension and gave up four runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. 

Ron Marinaccio recorded two big outs in relief of Germán before Albert Abreu tossed two shutout innings. 

Harrison Bader left the game in the third inning with right hamstring tightness. He sustained the injury after legging out an infield single. 

The Yankees will hand the ball to Nestor Cortes on Tuesday as they look to secure a series win. The first pitch is scheduled for 9:40 p.m.
