Luis Severino Combined with Two Relievers on One Hit

Aaron Judge hit his MLB-best 21st home run on the first pitch in the bottom of the first inning. The Yankees won for the fifth straight game and ninth win in 11 games since their only three-game losing streak this year.

Anthony Rizzo also went deep and Josh Donaldson raised a sacrifice fly for the Yankees, who beat their opponents 33-3 on their winning streak.

After Jameson Taillon retired the first 21 hitters Thursday night against the Angels and Gerrit Cole followed by setting down the first 20 batters Friday night against the Tigers, the suspense ended early for Severino and it ended by mere inches.

Miguel Cabrera’s 3,033rd career hit opened the second after Severino (4-1) needed just 12 pitches in the first.

Cabrera scored when his strong 109.6 mph line ricocheted off the top of shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa‘s glove and bounced into left field for the Severino slugger’s fifth career hit.It was the only ball the Tigers hit at more than 100 miles per hour.

Severino hit 10 in seven innings. His only walk came to Derek Hill in the third, and he was thrown out trying to steal second during an at-bat to Jonathan Schoop — who ended Cole’s perfect game.

On May 8, Jake Odorizzi combined with two assists in a one-hit game in Houston against the Tigers, whose only hit in the game was a schoop double in the second inning.

Following Hill’s walk, Severino retired the last 13 batters. He beat the full-back in the sixth and clinched the final after Willi Castro fouled him into right field, ending his outing, by hitting Cabrera a second time with his slider.
