Yankees score runs in last 3 innings for 4-1 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Despite battling injuries all season, the New York Yankees continue to win.

With AL MVP Aaron Judge sidelined after injuring his foot Saturday, the Yankees threw hard and were able to use some small ball to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 Sunday and win two of three games in the weekend series.

“Just a very good overall effort. A lot of winning things happened in that game,” manager Aaron Boone said.

New York put up runs in the seventh and eighth on soft groundouts before Anthony Volpe provided some insurance with a two-run homer in the ninth.

JD Martinez homered for the Dodgers, who lost the last two games of the series.

Clay Holmes (4-2) pitched an inning for the win, and Wandy Peralta got the last four outs for his fourth save.

It was a six-inning pitching duel between the Yankees’ Domingo Germán and the Dodgers’ Bobby Miller. The right-handers tied it scoreless as the teams combined for just four hits through the first six innings.
