New York Yankees 7, Cincinnati Reds 4

CINCINNATI — Captain Aaron Judge hit a key go-ahead single in the 10th inning. It was his fourth hit of the game and helped the New York Yankees beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-4. Just before the game, the Yankees designated Aaron Hicks for assignment putting an end to the clamor to get rid of him.

In an amazing comeback, the New York team beat Luke Weaver after being down 4-1 in the fifth inning. Isiah Kiner-Falefa‘s home run, Judge’s RBI double off the wall in left field, and Anthony Rizzo’s run-scoring single were all parts of the surge.

In the third inning, Judge hit a run-scoring single over the left-field fence. This added to his great day, in which he went 4-for-4 and drove in three runs. Judge has been on fire since he came off the injured list on May 9. In 11 games since then, he has a .378 batting average, seven home runs, 18 RBI, and a very good 1.402 OPS.

Greg Allen, who was just bought back by the Yankees on Friday night, started the 10th inning on second base automatically. Allen scored the winning run on Judge’s single off Ian Gibaut (3-1), which came after Gleyber Torres hit a fly ball.

Anthony Rizzo did it again with a two-run shot, which shows how well he’s been playing. This was his second home run in a row and his 24th home run at Great American Ball Park in his career.

The Yankees won because Clay Holmes (2-2) pitched a clean ninth inning in which he only gave up a walk. Ryan Weber took the mound in the 10th, adding to the Yankees’ impressive record of having seven different pitchers with saves, which is more than any other team in the big leagues.

After the game was over, Yankees manager Aaron Boone shook hands with famous Reds player Pete Rose, who was there and sitting in the first row.

The New York Yankees (28-20) kept doing well, winning five of their last six games and 10 of their last 13. With this win, they reached their best record of the season, which is eight games over .500.

The Yankees let Aaron Hicks go so they could make room for Greg Allen, who they got from Boston in a trade. In 28 games this season, Hicks, who is 33 years old, hit .188 with one home run and five RBI. He has a deal that guarantees him $70 million over the next seven years, which goes through 2025.

The Reds (19–26), who have lost five of their last six, got a home run from Luke Maile.

The game was watched by 41,374 people, which was Cincinnati’s second-largest home crowd and their second sellout of the season. It was interesting that a big part of the crowd cheered very loudly for the visiting Yankees.

Jake Fraley and Spencer Steer each hit a single that drove in a run in the first and third innings, and Luke Maile’s two-run shot in the fourth made it 4-1. The other team’s rookie pitcher, Jhony Brito, was on the field when these offensive plays were made.


Yankees RHP Luis Severino will make his 2023 debut on Sunday morning against Reds RHP Hunter Greene (0-3). He has been out since spring training because of a strained right lat muscle.
