#2 Aaron Judge hit a single to left, then Torres hit a double to left, and Hicks with a three run home run to the left of the right field foul pole scoring Torres and Judge ahead of him 4-1 Yankees

#3 You know what they say about good pitching the Yankees got a great start from Jim Paxson going six innings, one earned run, and nine strike outs for the win
