The New York Yankees (50-43) got back in the win column with a 6-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies (35-58) at Coors Field on Saturday night. 

New York plated all six of its runs in the first two innings, capped off by Giancarlo Stanton’s three-run blast, which was his 11th of the season. Stanton, who also had a run-scoring groundout, recorded his 1,000th career RBI, becoming the 298th player all-time to drive in at least 1,000 runs. 

Gleyber Torres stayed red-hot at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a triple and a two-out RBI single. Kyle Higashioka chipped in a sacrifice fly while DJ LeMahieu tallied his second three-hit game of the season.

Clarke Schmidt turned in another nice outing, allowing two runs on three hits over six innings while tying his season-high in strikeouts with eight. 

Wandy Peralta and Clay Holmes tossed scoreless frames. Tommy Kahnle surrendered a run for the first time this season, ending his scoreless streak at 15 1/3 innings.

The Yankees will try to take two of three from the Rockies on Sunday with Gerrit Cole on the bump. The first pitch is set for 3:10 p.m.
