Triston McKenzie allowed one hit in seven innings and Franmil Reyes drove on both runs as the Cleveland Guardians blanked the New York Yankees on Sunday 2-0.
Cleveland rescued the final contest of the three-game series with a victory.
Mackenzie (5-6) probably pitched his best match of the season. He walked one and hit seven.
He allowed only three base runners to the Yankees' strong lineup. In the 4th inning, Josh Donaldson's single and a walk to Giancarlo Stanton, and in the 6th inning, Marwin Gonzalez was hit by the pitch.
He hit Aaron Hicks against the ground out and ended the game.
The Guardians lost in the first five games of the six-game season series against the Yankees.
In three consecutive games, the Guardians got on the board first. Reyes hit six home runs and led four home runs. It has moved an estimated 384 feet to the leftfield stand, which represents a 1-0 lead. This was the second Homer in the Reyes series.
Cleveland has concentrated on major insurance coverage in the bottom of the eighth inning. Steven Kwan and Amed Rosario led the innings with J.P. Sears in a single. However, Kwan was thrown onto the plate of the ground ball by Gabriel Arias. Arias, called from Triple A Columbus on Saturday, wandered first base and was tagged with a rundown.
However, Reyes achieved a clutch two-out single to drive the Rosary on the Guardians' second run.
Left-handed Jordan Montgomery (3-2) cast five innings on the Yankees. He allowed only three hits and one run (Reyes Homer) and walked three times. Montgomery fueled eight batters. His last seven outs came through strikeouts.
