Yankees drop series opener to Brewers, fall 7-6 in 11 innings

The New York Yankees held four leads in Friday’s series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers but still came out on the losing end, falling 7-6 in 11 innings.

Giancarlo Stanton came off the bench in the 10th and smoked a go-ahead run-scoring double, but Michael Tonkin, who was claimed off waivers from the Mets on Thursday, allowed a game-tying single and a walk-off single. Closer Clay Holmes pitched a scoreless ninth to send it to extras, so he was unavailable.

Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo hit solo home runs earlier in the game. Trent Grisham had a go-ahead three-run homer, his first hit as a Yankee.

Luis Gil allowed five runs over six innings. Ron Marinaccio, Dennis Santana, and Caleb Ferguson had scoreless outings.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to snap a two-game skid and even the series on Saturday at 7:10 p.m. with Carlos Rodón on the mound.
