The New York Yankees opened a three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night at Chase Field and grabbed a 5-2 victory to improve to 5-0 for the first time in 32 years and just the fifth time in franchise history. 

New York jumped out to an early lead, scoring all five runs in the second and third innings, and never looked back. Anthony Volpe recorded his first career four-hit game, the second of which was a run-scoring single. Gleyber Torres went 2-for-5 with an RBI double, Austin Wells added a sacrifice fly, while Oswaldo Cabrera stayed hot with an RBI single. 

Luis Gil made his first big-league appearance since May 12, 2022, and surrendered just one run on one hit over 4.1 innings while walking three and striking out six. Luke Weaver gave up the second run over 2.1 innings, while Nick Burdi and Victor González had scoreless outings. 

Box Score

The Yankees try to make it 6-0 on Tuesday with Nestor Cortes on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 9:40 p.m.
