Austin Wells, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton went deep as the New York Yankees rolled past the Kansas City Royals, 10-1, on Tuesday night to improve to a season-high 27 games over .500 (48-21).

Wells broke the game open with a three-run shot in the fourth, his second of the season. Judge smacked his Major League-leading 25th homer in the seventh before Stanton blasted his 16th long ball 446 feet over the center field wall to make it 10-0.

Judge also added a run-scoring single in the first, while Gleyber Torres and Oswaldo Cabrera had RBI singles.

Marcus Stroman fired 5.2 shutout innings, lowering his season ERA from 3.04 to 2.82. Ron Marinaccio surrendered the only run in the eighth.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to take the first three games of this four-game series on Wednesday at 8:10 p.m. with Cody Poteet on the hill.
