New York, who has lost eight of their last nine, was held to just three hits. Brandon Nimmo plated the lone run with his third home run of the season.
Carlos Carrasco allowed two runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings. The right-hander, who has a 5.71 ERA this season, has gone five innings or fewer in six of his eight starts.
Josh Walker, Drew Smith, and Brooks Raley tossed scoreless frames to keep New York in the game.
