Jasson Domínguez blasted his third Major League home run, helping the New York Yankees (70-69) pick up a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers (63-76) on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium and extending their win streak to five games.
With the game knotted at one in the bottom of the third inning, Domínguez hammered one into the short porch in right field for a solo shot, his first homer in the Bronx. The 20-year-old later collected two more hits, raising his batting average to .333 through five big-league games.
DJ LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres plated runs with singles, while Oswald Peraza recorded three hits, including an RBI double.
Clarke Schmidt gave up three runs on five hits over 6.1 innings while striking out six. The righty improved to 9-8 on the season.
Wandy Peralta (1.1 IP), Greg Weissert (0.1 IP), and Clay Holmes (1.0 IP) had scoreless appearances.
The Yankees will go for the three-game sweep of the Tigers on Thursday at 7:05 p.m. Carlos Rodón will take the ball for New York.
