It’s been a rough two weeks for the New York Yankees (54-33), and it continued on Tuesday night in the Bronx as they fell 5-4 in the series opener against the Cincinnati Reds (40-45).

New York fell behind 5-0 in the fifth inning but finally put up some offense in the sixth and seventh, scoring four runs to cut the deficit to one before going down quietly in the final two frames.

Gleyber Torres put the Yankees on the board with an RBI single, and Ben Rice followed with a two-run double. Aaron Judge drilled his Major League-leading 32nd home run of the season.

Luis Gil turned in another rough outing, allowing four runs and three walks in four innings while hitting two batters. Caleb Ferguson gave up a two-run shot, but one run was charged to Gil.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to even this three-game series on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m.
