The New York Yankees competed all night and fought until the final pitch but just couldn’t get the big hit in a 5-2 loss to the Miami Marlins at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night.

Despite the loss, New York (10-3) took two of three from Miami (2-11) to secure their fourth straight series win.

Down 5-2 going into the bottom of the ninth, the Yankees loaded the bases on Jon Berti’s single and walks from Anthony Volpe and Juan Soto, bringing Aaron Judge to the plate with two outs. On the second pitch of the at-bat, Judge hit a fly ball to center field to end the contest.

Giancarlo Stanton homered in the sixth, his fourth of the season, while Soto drove in a run with a double in the eighth. New York went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left 10 on base.

Marcus Stroman struggled with command and allowed four runs over five innings, all of which came in the third. The right-hander, who also walked four and struck out seven, gave up an RBI single to Luis Arraez and a three-run shot to Jake Burger.

Aaron Boone was ejected for the first time this season and the 34th time in his managerial career for arguing balls and strikes in the seventh.

Box Score

The Yankees will get the day off Thursday before they begin a seven-game road trip, starting Friday in Cleveland against the Guardians. Clarke Schmidt will take the ball, with first pitch scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
