The New York Yankees (23-13) completed a three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers (18-16) with a 5-2 victory on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium in a game that was called after eight innings due to unplayable field conditions.

With the game tied at two in the bottom of the seventh inning, Juan Soto ripped one into the right-field corner for a bases-clearing double, and that was the difference.

Aaron Judge crushed his seventh home run of the season, and Oswaldo Cabrera had an RBI double.

Nestor Cortes surrendered two runs over 6.1 innings while striking out nine. Ian Hamilton allowed two runs to score, but they were charged to Cortes.

Box Score

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they open a three-game series at home with the Houston Astros on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.
