The New York Yankees just keep rolling.

On Tuesday night, they became the first team to 10 wins with a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins and are off to their best start since 2003 when they also opened the season 10-2.

Alex Verdugo opened the scoring in the second inning with a solo home run into the right-field seats. Giancarlo Stanton smoked a run-scoring double in the fifth, and Juan Soto added a two-out RBI single in the sixth.

Carlos Rodón turned in another nice outing, allowing two unearned runs on four hits over six innings while walking two and striking out six. The left-hander owns a 1.72 ERA through three starts.

Ian Hamilton fired two shutout frames before Clay Holmes recorded his fifth save of the season with a perfect ninth.

Box Score

The Yankees will go for the three-game sweep of the Marlins on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. with Marcus Stroman on the hill.
