Yankees snap skid, take series opener from Orioles

The New York Yankees (51-24) got back in the win column on Tuesday night with a 4-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles (47-25) in the series opener at Yankee Stadium.

However, the biggest storyline was that Aaron Judge left the game after being hit by a pitch on the left hand. He was sent for X-rays and a CT scan, and they came back negative.

Anthony Volpe and Giancarlo Stanton had RBI singles, while Gleyber Torres and DJ LeMahieu had sacrifice flies. Ben Rice went 1-for-4 with a single in his Major League debut.

Nestor Cortes fired six shutout innings while striking out six. Michael Tonkin and Luke Weaver tossed two scoreless frames before Clay Holmes gave up a two-run shot in the ninth in a non-save situation.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to secure a series win in the middle game of this three-game series on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. Gerrit Cole will come off the injured list and make his season debut.
